Look for: Small, firm squash with bright yellow or orange skins that have green veins branching like lightning through them.
Microwave: Place squash in a large glass baking dish or microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup broth (or water). Cover tightly and microwave on High for 10 minutes.
Prep: Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and slice into thin half-moons (peeling is optional).
Sauté: Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add squash slices; cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in a pinch of grated nutmeg before serving.
Steam: Place squash slices in a steamer basket over 1 inch of water in a large pot set over high heat. Cover and cook until tender, about 6 minutes.
