You could describe my cooking style as inventive, but I really have to be. When trying to cook seasonal fresh produce, it can be a challenge to make a balanced meal. I usually find a few things, throw them in a skillet and hope for the best. As I always tell Dev, come take a photo of this. It is either going to be really good or really bad!
Most fruits and veggies are pretty easy to work with, and a lot of them can go together with a simple sauce or seasoning with no trouble. Corn is in season (and on sale)! My favorite way to eat corn is straight off the grill, but on this rainy day, I had to settle for pan fried.
For a sweet and savory addition to any southern meal, you will need.
- 1 ear of corn
- 1 apple
- 1 onion
Yep. That's all. I didn't add any seasoning!
- Strip the corn off of the cob (raw).
- Dice an apple into small cubes.
- Slice or dice your onion to whatever size fits your fancy!
- Sautee these three until the onion and apple are soft and the corn is a little charred.
Enjoy! If you must add seasoning, I recommend a little black pepper and garlic or Tony's Creole seasoning if you want a little crawfish boil style. I paired this with some roasted broccoli and baby bella mushrooms. The green you see in the photo is arugula, my bitter friend. It has a very unique taste, when added in small quantities to pizza or a salad, it is delicious! I like to use it as a base for my bun-less burgers and a topping for pretty much anything!
