What To Do With Ginormous Summer Squash: Vegan Succotash!

If you are a gardener and have ginormous summer squash, I have a great dish for you: Vegan Succotash!!

Check out the 11 inch squash I received in my order of produce from Washington's Green Grocer. That thing could feed a family of 5 :)

I decided to cube the summer squash and turn it into a vegan succotash with a few other summer vegetables. Cured olives add a bit of interest and a great amount of saltiness. This can be breakfast, lunch or dinner, or a great base for frittata or an omelet.
