Market Watch: Patty Pan Squash

Although the summer has brought eggplant, tomatoes, okra, and more, today’s market really belonged to patty pan squash. There were buckets of these UFO shaped vegetables, in at least three different colors. Patty pans taste the same as regular squash, but their thick shape makes them suited to different cooking methods. I recommend first blanching them in salted boiling water to make sure they’re seasoned, but then the rest is up to you.

  1. We have been getting Patty Pan squash the last 3 weeks in our CSA share and love it. We blanch it (as you suggested) and then saute it in garlic with whatever else we have on hand (lately Zucchini & Summer Squash!). I had never had it before we got our CSA but I really like it!
