Three Sisters Saute

Three Sisters Saute

7 comments

Here is a dish to enjoy right now! Squash, beans, and corn are crops that are often grown together in the southwestern U.S. and are commonly referred to by Native Americans as the three sisters. This sauté is easy to make and the measurements do not need to be exact. Sometimes, I might not have a bell pepper, other times I might add a ripe tomato, finely chopped. If you do not like cilantro, substitute fresh basil, or Italian flat-leaved parsley combined with some Italian oregano. The roasted chiles add a wonderful flavor—if they are not hot—add serranos or jalapenos for heat according to taste.

Fried Squash Blossoms

Fried Squash Blossoms

24 comments

The golden orange blossoms from these annual vegetable plants are a summertime treat. The blooms of all types of squash--zucchini, yellow crookneck, patty pan, winter squash, and even pumpkin--can be used, though they do vary a little in size and time of bloom. Squash blossoms taste vegetable-like, slightly of raw squash, with a vague flowery smell. They are an Italian specialty when stuffed with cheese and fried in a light egg batter, or they can also be stuffed and baked. They are delicious sautéed at the last minute with squash dishes, eaten alone, or tossed with pasta. Squash blossoms can be cut into chiffonade or used whole and added to egg dishes, stir fries, soups, vegetables, and salads.

Butternut squash is paired with tomatoes, cubes of cheese, sage, and white wine. The sharpness of the cheddar is a good counterpoint to the squash's sweet flesh.

Fast-cooking zucchini is an ideal basis for sautés. Mint and lemon juice add zest.
