  • Cream Cheese Basil Summer Squash

    [DISCLAIMER: The recipes I share are non-dialysis and fit into the guidelines that "I" have received from "my' dieticians / nutritionists. They may or may not be appropriate for you, so be sure to check with your own doctor/dietician/nutritionist. Different stages of kidney disease have different requirements for diet and should be based on your own lab results.]

    [RECIPES: Because of multiple health issues, some of which make cooking/meal preparation difficult, I search the internet for recipes that are quick, fast, easy, and simple. And only for allowable foods that I like....LOL. I am trying to be as strict as possible in eating from the lists of allowable foods only, while still trying to ensure that I meet basic nutritional needs as given to me by "my" health team.]

    Cream Cheese Basil Summer Squash

    Ingredients Edit and Save
    Original recipe makes 4 servings
    3 yellow squash, cubed
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

    In a glass serving dish, combine the squash pieces and garlic. Season with salt, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 5 to 8 minutes on high, or until tender. Stir after every 3 to 4 minutes.
    Sprinkle the cream cheese over the top, and return to the microwave, uncovered for about 1 minute, or until the cheese is melted. Stir until the cheese is smooth and blended into the squash. Let set for a minute or two before serving.

    Sounds like it would be good as a spread. I have found that 2 or 21/2 minutes in microwave cooks about everything
