It’s summertime, which means zucchini, courgettes and yellow squash are practically coming out of our ears! Whether your garden is overflowing or your favorite farmers market has them by the case, they are ripe and oh-so ready to eat. The light and versatile summer squash accents dishes from spicy, savory to the super sweet with a wonderfully delicate flavor and texture, making them the perfect consideration for a Meatless Monday recipe (or several).

Ratatouille is a great side dish, but you can also make a meal of it! Pairing zucchini with eggplant and tomatoes brings out the flavors of these summer veggies. If you feel the need for some protein, a simple omelette is a typical French accompaniment.
