Summer squash rice pilaf is a tasty and easy side dish. Tender carrots, zucchini and yellow squash are mixed with creamy rice. Best part is, it pairs well with pretty much anything!


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • ½ cup chopped onions
  • 2 cups broth low-sodium chicken or veggie
  • cup long grain rice
  • 1 cup sliced yellow squash
  • 1 cup sliced zucchini
  • Fresh herbs of your choice (optional) basil, parsley, oregano, thyme, dill, etc
