Corn and tomato saute with basil

Sweet corn, sweet, sweet, corn. Minnesota summer at it’s best. I was so thankful to get all of my favorite ingredients at their peak in the farm share box this week. 

While the corn is an obvious superstar, the things that make this recipe better are onions and garlic–FRESH! If you’ve only had the supermarket versions you’re missing out. Fresh garlic is in a completely different stratosphere, far more delicate flavor since it’s not dried out from all that shipping and storage time on a shelf. Seek it out at your farmer’s market, you’ll be convinced.

Hub threw a steak on the grill and voilà! Weeknight dinner on the patio. 

Corn & tomato saute with basil

  • 8 ears corn, kernals sliced off
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2c basil, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper

Saute onion in butter til soft, about 3 min. Add corn kernals and continue sautéing until bright yellow, about 10 min over medium-low heat. Add garlic, tomato and cook another 3 min. Toss in basil and season with salt and pepper.
