Immediately before cooking pattypan squash rinse under cold water.


Pattypan squash put a small amount of cold water, if we want this to their taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If we cook pattypan squash as a separate dish, throw them into boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. Pattypan squash fully cook for 15-20 minutes. Cut pattypan squash cook for 10 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To see if patisony are already cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, they are ready.


After cooking, drain off pattypan squash. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.


Serve sprinkled with dill and topped with melted butter.

Bon appétit!
