I always end up buying produce from farmers market sometimes and they have such fresh veggies and fruits that I feel like a kid in a candy store. I got some yellow summer squash and wanted to make something quick and simple.

I chop the squash up to thin round medallions. 

Then I place them in a baking sheet and sprinkle salt, cayenne, cumin powder, coriander powder and lemon pepper. Then I coat them with EVOO and place them in the oven for about 5 to 7 minutes at 375 degrees. Check the medallions in the oven after 3 minutes or so and turn them so they cook on the other side for the rest of the 3-4 minutes.

Meanwhile , I get my pan going on my gas range with some olive oil, chopped serrano/ green chili’s (remove the seeds to take off the heat from the chilis),onions cumin seeds and garlic with salt and pepper. Sweat out the garlic and onions till they turn transparent.

Take the baking sheet out of the oven and plate with onions and roasted garlic on top. I used some fresh cilantro for garnish.

A healthy delicious dish ready in less than 10 minutes!!


With much love as always ……..
