A surprising fan of our squash is our boxer dog Fitz. Well, actually both dogs really like it, but today Fitz decided to harvest a squash for himself. So he grabbed a squash off the table and ran under one of the olive trees. Believe it or not, he actually ate the whole squash, raw!
I think he’s telling me it’s time to cook a squash for them, to add to their dinner. It’s good for them, so why not? I may not make the recipe shown below, but for dogs, simple is usually best.
Squash with sage and garlic
1 butternut squash
3 cloves garlic, chopped
handful fresh sage leaves, chopped
Yunquera Gold olive oil
Peel and de-seed the squash. Cut into thin fingers. Fry in the olive oil with the garlic and sage until tender, and serve.
