2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 small Onion; Pared & cut into 1-inch Pieces
1 pounds Squash; Pared & cut into 1-inch Pieces; (Recommend Hubbard or Acorn)

Never cooked vegetables with coconut milk? The sweet-milky liquid is perfect for yams or squash. Only in today's recipe have we found both golden vegetables prepared together as our salute to Black History Month continues at Recipe-a-Day.com.

In a large skillet over medium heat warm oil and saute onion until tender, approximately 3 to 5-minutes. Add all remaining ingredients and heat to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and cover. Continue to simmer for about 20 to 25-minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.

Remove cover and continue to simmer an additional 5-minutes until vegetables are cooked thoroughly. Serve warm.
