Quick, Easy Recipe That Toddlers will Love!

When trying to decide how to use our recent CSA vegetables, I came up with this recipe for Leeks and Summer Squash. It’s super easy, and my toddler loved it.

Sauteed Leeks with Summer Squash

  • 1 tbsp organic butter
  • 1 tbsp organic olive oil
  • 3 small leeks, rinsed and and sliced into half moon shaped pieces
  • 3 small summer squash cut into bite-sized cubes
  • fresh flat leafed parsley, roughly chopped
  • unrefined sea salt salt
  1. Place a large (preferably cast iron) skillet over medium heat, and add the butter and olive oil.
  2. When butter is melted, add the squash, leeks and a bit of salt.
  3. Sauté the vegetables for 15 – 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. When the squash are soft and tinged brown, remove from heat and add the parsley. This can be served as a side to almost any dish.

Voila! Quick, easy, toddler friendly veggies!
