Stir-Fried Pattypan Squash
Baby pattypan squash is available in most large supermarkets. It's a squat little summer squash with the flavor of zucchini. It's great in sautés, or toss whole squash in a little olive oil and throw it on the barbecue grill for a few minutes.
In a large, flat-bottom wok or Dutch oven, heat sesame and vegetable oils until hot but not smoking. Add garlic, ginger, and onion and sauté for 1 minute.
Add pattypan squash and sauté until squash is crisp-tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with soy sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Add cilantro just before serving.
