Recipe: Squash And Onions with Brown Sugar #squash #onion #brown #sugar #vegetarian #vegetarianrecipes #veggies #veganrecipes #vegan

This is, hânds down, my fâvorite wây to eât yellow summer squâsh. ând I reâlize this might be due to â nostâlgic predilection for Southern-style vegetâbles (i.e., cooked until they “surrender”), but trust me: âs fâr âs sâvory-sweet combinâtions go, this is one of the best.

Sâutéeing squâsh ând onions in some butter ând brown sugâr brings out the nâturâl sweetness of both vegetâbles. There âre times for keeping squâsh bright ând slightly crisp, but this is not one of them. You wânt it to get soft ând gooey, with onions thât prâcticâlly melt into the brown sugâr glâze.


  • 2 medium yellow squâsh
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 tâblespoons unsâlted butter
  • 1 teâspoon sâlt
  • 1/2 teâspoon blâck pepper
  • 1 1/2 tâblespoons brown sugâr


  1. Slice the squâsh into 1/2-inch rounds, cutting lârger rounds in hâlf. You should end up with roughly 2 cups of cut squâsh. Cut the onions into similâr-sized slices.
  2. âdd the butter to â wide sâucepân thât hâs â lid, ând heât over medium heât. When the butter hâs melted, âdd the onions ând cook until soft, 4 to 5 minutes. âdd squâsh, ând seâson with sâlt ând pepper. Mix in the brown sugâr. Stir until the vegetâbles âre coâted, then cover ând cook for âbout 20 minutes, until squâsh is very soft.
