  2. Grilled Pattypan Squash with Hot Chorizo Vinaigrette – Almost Stuffed

    Fri, 14 Aug 2015

    Michele does a fantastic, sausage-stuffed pattypan squash, which was actually how these were supposed to be prepared, but someone, and we won’t name names, didn’t pay attention to buying ones of a uniform size, which is kind of a big deal if you want them to bake evenly. Okay, it was me. In an attempt to redeem myself, I decided to grill them instead – a cooking method where any size will work – and top them with a hot chorizo vinaigrette . It’s something I’ve wanted to try for a while, and it really turned out to be a wonderful combination. The ingredients below are just a rough guide, and you’ll have to figure out your own amounts, depending on how much squash you grill, but I do recommend a 1-to-1 ratio of sherry vinegar to olive oil/rendered chorizo fat. I used a veal chorizo, which was very lean, so I had to add a good amount of olive oil. If you use pork chorizo, you’ll have a lot of rendered fat, so you may want to drain off most of it, keeping a few tablespoons, before adding your oil and vinegar. Speaking of oil, don’t put any on your squash before you toss it on the grill. I used to do this myself, because it seemed logical, but it’s a bad idea. The dripping oil causes flare-ups that can make your veggies taste like gasoline, which is not good eats. Other than that, not much can go wrong with this simple summer dish. I hope you give it a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients for 4 portions 8 pattypan squash kosher salt to taste 6-8 ounces fresh, raw chorizo sausage (crumbled fine, and browned well in olive oil) *you want to leave about 2 tablespoons rendered chorizo fat in the pan 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/3 cup sherry vinegar (or, use any vinegar you like) splash of water to maintain moisture level if needed 1 tablespoon freshly sliced mint leaves
