30 days of new foods: Day 30: mystery squash

Recently I found I was having a hard time pulling dinner together. I have lots of recipes and cooking experience, but when my daughter would ask, “What’s for dinner” and I realized my plan didn’t go farther than broccoli and corn chips, I realized I needed a little help.

So I subscribed to Sunbasket, a meal kit that offers lots of gluten-free and dairy-free options. One week, this white lumpy guy showed up in my box (tomato for scale):


They called it a summer squash and indeed, that’s how it seemed to be: similar to a zucchini or yellow summer squash.


Cooked up with oil and seasonings it looks like something like this:


My best guess is that this is a white pattypan squash, just oddly shaped. Do you know?

  1. I’ve never seen anything quite like that. Your guess seems about right to me. Could be some hybrid variety of a patty pan. Reminds me a bit of the Patisson Panache Jaune et Vert.
