This clean eating summer squash casserole recipe makes a wonderful summer-time side dish!
One of my most popular recipes of all time is my roasted summer squash recipe. It’s been on my blog for years and still gets repined, tweeted and shared on Facebook a lot. It’s just one of those recipes that people love!
I think part of why it’s such a popular recipe is that many people grow their own veggies in summer, and I think most of us know that summer squash can be prolific. So recipes for this squash are in need every summer and I didn’t want to go another year without creating another one for you guys to enjoy.
Now, I used almond milk simply because I’m dairy free. But regular milk will work here too. And I will say that while this has nice flavor, I really enjoyed it far more with some salt. So keep that salt shaker handy at the table.
This makes a nice, veggie side-dish for just about any meal. I paired it with fish and a salad, but it really goes with pretty much anything. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
