"I Forgot to Harvest the Squash" Puree

Author Notes: My neighbor gave me a huge, over-mature yellow summer squash. Not wanting to waste anything, I peeled, seeded, chunked, and steamed it, threw it in the food processor with an excess of butter, some kosher salt, garlic powder, and pepper and instantly regretted all those times that I composted mine.Ellen

Makes: about 4 cups, depending on the size of the squash

  • 1 4-5 pound over-mature yellow summer squash
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  1. Cut the squash into chunks and then peel and seed each one.
  2. Cook in a steamer basket until just tender.
  3. Place the steamed squash and the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and puree.
