Patty Pan Squash
Pattypan squash, otherwise known as scallop squash, is a small, round, saucer-shaped vegetable that grows during summer months. This variety of squash displays a pale green, white or rich yellow skin, with a white, fleshy interior.
Pattypan is best in flavor when still on the small side and may be served whole when roasted or sliced for sauté, excellent as part of a summer vegetable ragout, succotash or medley.
Pattypan squash is a heart-healthy vegetable, packed with vitamins and minerals such as potassium and magnesium that offer cardio-protective effects. Pattypan squash originates from the region between Mexico and Guatemala, and is a relative of the cucumber and melon.
