Braised Grey Squash

August is deep into summer squash season, and I’m always looking for fun new ways to prepare them as we usually have so many. I was playing around with the Apollonia blend, which I love using in savory dishes, and came up with an easy and delicious braised squash recipe. Apollonia supplies bitterness and warm aromatics, and hawayej grounds the sauce with its rich cumin notes. Grey squash are a tender and sweet variety common in Mexican, Lebanese, and Korean cooking. Eating them in this dish is like taking a bite of summer sunshine.
