Squash and Onions with Brown Sugar

Sautéeing squash and onions in some butter and brown sugar brings out the natural sweetness of both vegetables. There are times for keeping squash bright and slightly crisp. This is not one of them. You want it to get soft and gooey, with onions that practically melt into the brown sugar glaze.

There is just enough sugar (and you can adjust it to your own taste) to complement the vegetables without drowning out their natural flavor. It’s not meant to be dessert, although we’d take it — but we do think it would be a success with a vegetable-averse child. Just a thought.

Potato, Squash, & Goat Cheese Gratin

This is an easy, rustic recipe that makes a great vegetarian meal or a pretty side dish for summer or autumn. It’s so simple: Yellow squash layered in a jumble with sliced red potato and goat cheese. No cream needed at all.

There’s not a ton of cheese and no cream (just a splash of milk to keep it tender), so the fresh taste of the vegetables is front and center. We sprinkled our gratin with basil at the end for a little color. It was a near-perfect dinner (and great leftover, FYI).
