I'm continuing my summertime recipes as it's getting warmer and warmer down here already. We broke out the shorts last weekend!
Corn & Zucchini Saute
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
2 cups fresh corn (about 4 ears)
2 medium zucchini (1 lb), quartered lengthwise, then cut cross-wise into 1/4-inch pieces
1/4 tsp ground cumin
Salt & pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat till hot but not smoking, then cook green onions, stirring occasionally till softened about 3 min. Add garlic and cook, stirring 1 min. Add corn, zucchini, cumin, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, till zucchini is tender, four to six minutes. Stir in cilantro and season more with salt and pepper, if needed.
