Wellness Tip
Squash
Squash is a water-laden vegetable. We suggest baking or roasting squash to evaporate some of the water and to concentrate the vegetable's flavors. For ribbed squash, cut in half or in large wedges. Place the pieces cut side down on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. To roast peeled chunks of squash, scatter on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
