This is a great recipe that I came up with for my pal Shaun, the guy who hates all
vegetables except corn and Edamame. I’m sure he’ll grow out of that, but in the
meantime, this was a fun way to get some more good stuff into him. For four,
you’ll need:
I small onion, finely diced
1 small red pepper, seeded and finely diced
1 box frozen corn, thawed (unless you have beautiful in season sweet corn on the
cob, then scrape the kernels off 4 or 5 ears and use those)
1 bag frozen shelled Edamame (soybeans) 12 oz., thawed
a splash of chicken or vegetable stock, if you’re cooking vegetarian
salt and pepper, to taste
In a large sauté pan on medium heat, sauté the onion and pepper in a mixture of
butter and olive oil, about 1 Tb. of each. When the onions are nice and soft, dump
in your corn and the Edamame, add a bit of chicken stock, stir it then partially
cover it. All you’re really doing at this point is warming up the corn and soybeans,
as they need very little cooking, so it’s only going to take a few minutes. The
butter and stock will give you a little sauce, and you probably won’t need much
seasoning, but check to make sure. The whole thing will take you about 10
minutes from start to finish, is a great side dish, and will make your vegetarian
friends happy as well as any vegetable phobic young men you might have around.
