Slow-Cooked Yellow Squash

Long cooking in a covered pot concentrates the sweet, nutty flavor of squash. If the vegetable begins to brown as it cooks, lower the heat and add a splash of water.

    total time: 50 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 yellow squashes (8 ounces each), thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Step 1

    In a large pot, heat oil over medium-low. Add onion, squashes, and 2 tablespoons water. Season with salt and pepper, and toss well. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 30 to 35 minutes.

    This is so sweet and delicious! I have made it many times. It goes with any type of poultry or pork especially well.
