The Great Veggie Experiment – Patty Pan Squash

Posted Jul 27 2010 9:00am

Mid summer means lots of different kinds of squash!  At the farmer’s market, I decided to get some patty pan squash.  It looks like a sunflower, doesn’t it?

Also called scalloped squash or cibleme.  This squash is a good source of vitamins A and C, plus magnesium and niacin.

1 cup of squash has about 20 calories.

I actually am not a huge fan of squashes as I think the texture is too soft for me, but these looked so cute!  I decided to give them a crust and pan saute the slices.

I made thin 1/3 inch slices of the squash:

Then I made the dredging station.  I used 2/3 cup of Uncle Sam cereal ground up mixed with salt and pepper.  The other bowl contained egg whites:

I dipped each slice in the egg, then the cereal:

Then I put them in a preheated skillet with a couple tsp of coconut oil.  I really should have used a bigger pan.

Cooked for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and delicious!

Then removed to a cooling rack.

The verdict?  Pretty good!  The outside was crispy from the cereal and the inside was soft.  The squash flavor was pretty delicate, so I was glad not to season the coating with anything.

Not sure I would necessarily buy one again, but it was fun to try!
