It is an easy summer, vegetarian recipe that can be served with fried eggs if you do not want to eat it with meat, but in my opinion, it fits with meatballs better.

The most important question is what kind of squash will we make the recipe from? I usually make this recipe from summer squash, and more precisely from a variety similar to zucchini but pale green in some places called tatuma squash or Mexican squash.

Only a Few Ingredients

Because I said it’s a simple recipe, we only need two main ingredients, namely summer squash, of which I need four pieces of small-medium size, in total about 1-1.2 kg, and a can of chopped tomatoes of 400 g.

And as an aromatic plant, we will add a handful of chopped green dill that fits perfectly with the summer squash.

Preparing the Ingredients

Because as is the name of the dish is a grated summer squash stew recipe, we have to grate the squash. For this, I usually use to cut the heads of the squash first and then peel them with a vegetable peeler.
