I’ve been active on various social channels and I’ve found a common need amongst various Paleo followers: the need for more easy-to-make side dish recipes. People want something easy, something that is not a salad, and something that requires few ingredients yet still remains delicious and exciting.

I would like to dedicate this post to them (and you!), to provide a simple and quick side dish that is Paleo approved and delicious. You will need few ingredients (some of you might be able to find these already in your kitchen, since they are so common) and only a little prep time. Please welcome… Summer Squash Wedges!

Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 summer squash
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste (I used about ½ teaspoon)
  • Freshly Ground black pepper to taste (I used about ¼ teaspoon)
  • Paprika to taste (I used about ¼ teaspoon)
  1. Cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  2. Set broiler on high, arranging rack so that the squash ends up being about 2 inches from the heat.
  3. Cut squash into thick wedges (about 1 inch thick).
  4. Place wedges in Ziploc bag and add the rest of your ingredients.
  5. Close Ziploc bag and shake it thoroughly; be sure all ingredients mix well.
  6. Place wedges in a single row in the center of your baking dish.
  7. Place squash wedges in oven and broil for 5 minutes (or until golden).
  8. Carefully flip each squash wedge and broil for another 2 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool off for a bit. Enjoy!

  1. My kids loved this, such a perfect way to use all the squash I have right now. My 6 year old kept asking for more “fries”.
