Summer Squash Recipes- Breakfast?

Squash can be eaten at all meals during the day, even breakfast.  These recipes refer to zucchini as the vegetable, but the CSA squash has a similar texture and can be substituted.  Summer squash does make a good nutrient source to start the day.  It provides vitamin C and potassium.  It also has a high water content so it is low in calories and provides help from dehydration and the effects of the sun.  The World’s Healthiest Food website has more information on squash.

Here are the recipes.  Send me ways that you prepare squash for breakfast or any other meal.
