This Zucchini and Squash Skillet is the perfect side dish. It is super simple to make and includes minimal ingredients such as zucchini, squash, onions, olive oil, salt/pepper and onion powder. It is Whole30, Keto and Paleo



  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 2 medium yellow squash
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 3/4 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a 10 or 12 inch skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Make sure that the olive oil is coating the entire pan so the zucchini and squash don’t stick. 
  2. Use a sharp knife to chop off the ends of the zucchini and squash. Chop them into chunks. 1/2 inch chunks, rather than slices. 
  3. Transfer the sliced onions into the hot skillet along with the chopped squash and zucchini to the hot skillet.
  4. Sauté for about 8-10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, parsley and onion powder.
  5. Remove the skillet from the heat once the squash is fork tender.
