Grilling underscores the earthiness of the cumin and coriander, and enhances the nuttiness of this summer squash. Use white, orange, or yellow pattypan squash for the most colorful skewers.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pound baby pattypan squash, cut in half crosswise
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh mint leaves

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat grill.
  2. 2. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Thread squash and onion alternately onto each of 8 (10-inch) skewers. Place skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 10 minutes or until tender, turning frequently. Drizzle with juice. Sprinkle with mint.
