Garlicky Squash, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

14 May

Not to generalize, but I love mechanics. They are really trustworthy, helpful, honest, and open. They just want what’s best for you and your car. They take extra, extra good care of women. If you’re a nice lady, you can bet that they’ll try to save you as much money as possible.

That’s my experience, anyway. I’m neither bitter nor scorned.

Here’s a little snack you can make after you’ve been to the mechanic. You’ll feel healthy and renewed as you’re chomping on these babies.

This makes a great side to steaks you cook on the grill. Now go eat your summer veggies.

Makes 4 side servings


1 T. olive oil
3-5 cloves garlic
1 yellow squash
1 zucchini
2 Roma tomatoes


Finely chop garlic cloves. Chop squash, zucchini, and tomatoes in equal-sized slices, then cut in half. Pieces should be roughly the same size.

Add oil to large skillet, and heat to medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until sizzling and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add squash and zucchini slices, and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
