Fresh Corn and Zucchini Saute

Standard

REVISED140I love the fresh goodness that this recipe is giving us. I have to admit that I cheated a little bit. I roasted my corn in the oven before I cut the kernels from the cob. I really love how easy it is to remove the silk and husk when you use this method — and besides, it just brings out the best flavor in the corn. I just waited a few minutes to add the corn to the zucchini as it was cooking in the pan. This is a really beautiful way to cook the zucchini. It leaves it tender and flavorful without getting mushy. This recipe is perfect for add-ons — I recommend garlic and tomatoes or maybe a little cilantro, basil or peppers.
