Anyway, I tried a new vegetable that I wanted to tell you about: Patty Pan Squash! That's right, the stuff you plant in Farmville.
My boss at work has a little farm plot and brings in vegetables to share with the office. This was one of her veggies. I am usually a fan of squash so I thought I would give it a try.
I cut off the top and the bottom of the squash and cut the rest into cubes. Next, I lightly tossed the pieces in olive oil with some salt and pepper and roasted them in the oven.
The squash did not have a very strong flavor and was slightly sweet. I would eat it again. I would definitely like to try some different spices and flavor combinations. I even think if I roasted it without any spices and chilled the pieces, it could even be suitable in a smoothie....too weird?
One cup of Patty Pan Squash only has 30 calories! Gotta love those veggies :) Lots of fill without a lot of calories!
What's your favorite lesser known veggie?
