The #forgottenfruitandveg series

Standard

Across our social media platforms we will bring you information on produce you see in store but may not buy because you just don’t know what to do with it, plus it is another initiative to combat food waste.

Try something new & buy the picks in this series, otherwise it just gets left behind & forgotten about.

Our first pick is YELLOW SQUASH – it comes from the same family as pumpkin and zucchini, this vegetable is very versatile. It contains dietary fibre and is a great source of Vitamin C.

Select firm squash that’s heavy for its size and has smooth, glossy skin.

Store in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge for up to three days. Simply wash and cook whole, sliced or cut into wedges.

Cooking tips:
Thread onto skewers with tomatoes and mushrooms and barbecue.
OR
Thinly slice and add to stir-fries with chicken and capsicum.

Using the above hashtag & tagging us, show us how you use Yellow Squash!
