Microwaved Squash, Potatoes & Onions

Bea L.


We love this dish. I have made this dish countless times and it's always been a hit when served to family and friends.

This isn't really a recipe but directions on how I make this myself. We grow yellow summer squash and zucchini every year so I had to get a little creative.

I also love just potatoes and onions fixed this way or only squash and potatoes sometimes.

pinch tips: How to Shuck, Cook, and Cut Corn





fresh yellow summer squash, sliced
zucchini, sliced (optional)
potatoes, sliced
onions, chopped (or onion powder)
carrots, shredded (optional)
salt & black pepper
garlic powder
olive oil (your choice) &/or butter

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash veggies really well and slice in thin rounds the same thickness as much as possible. But then again you can simply cube the veggies. I do it both ways. (I always chop my onions because that's the way we prefer them. We also like our carrots shredded in this dish when I decide to use them).
Put in a microwavable bowl. Sprinkle on your seasonings of choice then drizzle olive oil over veggies. You decide the amount. It's not necessary to add any water. If you don't use olive oil you may put pats of butter on top of veggies. You may even put one pat of butter in with the olive oil.
Cover and microwave to the tenderness you desire.
