Zucchini with Onions

Zucchini with Onions

My family is not a big fan of squash, but they all like zucchini.  In the summer we eat it frequently.  I didn’t grow any zucchini this year, but I like to buy it from farmers markets.

My picky eater loves zucchini with walnuts, and while we all enjoy that recipe, it probably comes in second to this one for the rest of us.

This recipe is also great with yellow squash.  In fact, that’s the way I first tasted it as my cousin’s house a few years ago.  I was not a fan of yellow squash, but when I saw the dish of squash and onions with dill, I just knew I would like it.

My family wasn’t won over to eating yellow squash so easily, but I found that they really liked it with zucchini—as long as it is not overcooked.  No one likes mushy zucchini.

    This is even better with spices the way it is made in India. Use whole Cumin seed and corriander and a little tumeric and a little red pepper. Serve over basmati rice. Delicious. A friend from India said “no wonder American kids do not eat vegatables, they are cooked so bland in America”. So true! Of course with onions, Linda’s recipe is not bland – probably very good!

    Any suggestions on other spices to use than dill? My kids don’t like dill and definitely wouldn’t like it with the Indian spices. Thanks!
