Avocado Squash

Oh My these little gems are good!! I saw these at the Union Square farmers market being cooked in a demo. At first I was wondering why they were sautéing avocados and then they told us they were actually squash. But to me they look so similar! There true name is not even Avocado Squash, but the farmer renamed them because they look so alike. They are firm and nutty and deelish! So happy that I bought a couple.

All I did was chop them up and saute them with some olive oil, salt & pepper. Super simple and amazing!

    Hi! I’m wondering, did the farmer mention what the true name of these squash is? I’m desperately trying to track down some seed so I can grow them myself, but it’s pretty night impossible without knowing what they’re actually called (‘avocado squash’ comes up with lots of recipes but no seeds)! Thanks 🙂
