I am growing some herbs on my balcony. I wish I had a yard so I could have a full garden, but for now a few pots with fresh herbs will have to do.
This side dish is summer in a bowl. Fresh corn cut off the cob, garden zucchini and a variety of herbs, fresh from my planter box! It was easy, quick and super tasty.
Here is what you need,
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 small zucchini, diced
4 medium ears of corn, kernels cut off
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp fresh basil
1 tbsp fresh chives
1 tbsp fresh parsley
1 ½ tsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini and cook until softened and browned at the edges, this should take about 4 minutes. Add the corn and sauté until softened and a deep yellow color, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Off heat add in the herbs and lemon juice. Finally season with salt and pepper to taste.
This would make a great side dish for just about any meal. I loved it! It is just so fresh and light. I love how the corn kernels stay a bit snappy! Yum!
It always tastes better when you grow it yourself, well some of it... you know!
