46. Summer Squash with onions and tomatoes

(a repost from the delightful days of summer. sigh.)


So, the GoSun, that magical looking tube with the shiny sides, makes food. I have proof now.


To ease into all the hubbub, I cut up a yellow squash, green onions, and cherry tomatoes, enough to fill the long tube but not over fill it. I spritzed it with veggie oil spray and put a generous shaking of italian seasoning on it, and in the tube it went!

I’m quite pleased with the result, which was more like steamed than roasted after a little over an hour in medium sunshine. Next time, I will angle the dish toward the sun better, as well as add a bit more on the salt-and-pepper side of spices, but overall, a rousing success.

In other news, my friend N is thinking of holding a meatball competition, to have us all make and try different kinds of meatballs (meatless and meat-ful)… any favorite meatball recipes? I have one from a previous commenter but more are always welcome, the weirder the better!

    This sounds delicious! Here in Taiwan it is the season for winter squash, I had a delightful soup of chunks in a clear chicken broth with just a bit of ginger.

  2. Those veggies look delish!

    As for meatball recipes, here is how I make them for my husband:

    -1 standard size package of lean ground turkey
    -1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
    -1 egg white
    -2 tablespoons chopped basil
    -1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
    -1/2 teaspoon salt

    -Preheat oven to 325 and grease a cookie sheet.
    -Combine bread crumbs and seasonings in a bowl, stirring well.
    -Add turkey and egg white.
    -Knead until thoroughly mixed. It’s important to make sure the egg white gets mixed in well.
    -Form into balls and bake for 30 minutes or until cooked throughout.

    These are a lighter, healthier meatball that go great with non-red sauces. Serve them with homemade pesto, or simply EVOO and garlic.
