So yellow squash needs a bit more flavor when cooked. What to add to make it pop? The answer: simplicity and butter.

A simple solution is sautéing the squash in butter, then adding salt and pepper and a splash of white wine. Butter is the key to many of the add-ons for this delicate vegetable.

Other tasty options include mixing diced tomato with freshly steamed squash. White pepper and nutmeg bring great flavor, as do Penzeys spice mixes.

A classic preparation is with onions sautéed until they’re translucent and/or caramelized. A small sprinkling of thyme complements the sweet flavor with a citrusy, herbal zest.
