Roasted (or Baked) – Cut in half, slice or cut into pieces. Brush with olive oil and season with salt. Bake at 400-degrees for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Throw some other veggies on there to make a delicious roasted vegetable medley. Sautéed – Slice or cut into smaller pieces and sauté in butter over medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Season with salt or seasoning (see ideas below). Grilled – Cut into thick slices or wedges. Brush with vegetable oil and grill for 5 minutes per side or until tender. Season with salt with each turn. Air Fried – Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Air fry at 375-degrees for 8 minutes, flipping half-way through. Season more after flipping if needed.

Yellow squash is rich in nutrients such as potassium, antioxidants and vitamins that are good for the body. The skin is difficult to peel but there are different methods to get around it. You can steam or boil them and eat them directly. Roasting them inside the oven also makes a great lunch and dinner.

Yellow squash has to be washed before consuming. There is no need to peel it as its thin skin contains a rich amount of nutrients and is also a good source of fiber. Yellow squash can be eaten cooked or raw. Cooked yellow squash is easier to digest for the body.
