Squash and Zucchini Vegetarian Burritos Recipe

I am still on my quest to create fun and exciting squash and zucchini recipes!  My zucchini is almost done I think, but my squash has taken over where the zucchini has left off.  I made burritos the other day from a mixture of squash and zucchini, and they turned out wonderfully.

You will need:
2 medium squash, chopped
2 medium zucchini, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. parsley
1 bay leaf
2 cloves chopped fresh garlic
1/2 tsp. basil

Combine all ingredients in a large pot.  Bring to a good simmer, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 40 minutes or until tender.  Remove bay leaf, and use a slotted spoon (it will produce some liquid in cooking) to drain and spread on tortillas.  Top with sour cream and cheddar cheese if desired.  Serves 6.

Oh yum! These look really great. I didn't plant any zucchini or squash this year. Next year when I expand the garden, I am going to include them. That, and cucumber!

This looks yummy. I bet my meat loving husband would love it too.

Looks lovely, but as an Irish mother I am bound by law to cook only with potatoes, or risk the wrath of the natives xxx

Oh my gosh, I need to make this. I used to be a vegetarian and was just telling my husband yesterday that I want to start cooking that way for the kids at least once a week. I will have to try this first. And no dairy? I love you for this!

I am always interested in finding recipes that are meatless-and this looks so good! The fact that it uses zucchini is a plus too-because we've got zucchini (and zucchini and zucchini...!)
