Papaya Pear Squash

This is Papaya Pear Squash.

The first time I saw it was over the weekend and just HAD to try it. After Googling it I learned that it's a lot like Patty Pan Squash and can be substituted for Yellow Squash in recipes. I also learned that it's a bit sweeter than the other yellow squashes.

I nibbled on a small piece while throwing together an improv vegan dish.

Here is what I threw in:

2 Papaya Pear Squash
1/4 C Diced Onion
1 T (Vegan) Margarine
1 t Olive Oil
1 T Balsamic Vinegar
To taste: Basil, Sage, Oregano, Thyme, Sea Salt, Peppercorn Medley, Cayenne Pepper
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1 Can of Black Beans
1/2 Can of Corn

I sautéed until soft. It was very tasty! I think I will try this one again! Sorry I don't have a picture of the finished product...I tried...it didn't do it much justice.

Hi again Diane! I hope you don't mind but I'm going to link you and also send you an email soon...it's been a little crazy lately.

Thanks for swinging by my blog and commenting. I'm not a vegan but I enjoy a lot of vegan dishes. I've been a vegetarian for about 15 years tho. I love the cards you posted...they are very nice. Looking forward to getting to know you more - soon! Thanks again!
