Putting Corn Dish Together
The answer was obvious - build on it until I would have enough for a serving dish, a small one, though. Adding was easy because it was based on what was available in my kitchen. There was a partially cut red pepper, on my counter so I chopped about a one inch slice into tiny pieces and threw that in with the corn. Also, sitting on my counter, forlorn and alone was half a small onion which was chopped and added to the corn. You guessed it, there was also a half of a zucchini that graced this dish.
Looking at my counter again, a bottle of balsamic vinegar sat there with about 1/4 of an inch of liquid. Throw it in. Better add some sugar to modify the flavor of the vinegar. I tasted it and I must have put in too much sugar and had to find something to change the taste. Hmm, soy sauce should do it. Soy sauce is good with anything and it did the trick, once again. Top with chopped dill.
That is how we built a corn dish.
I will do my best to re-create this but just throw it all together and it will, most likely, be just fine.
1 cup defrosted corn kernels
1 piece of red pepper, chopped small
1/2 zucchini, chopped
1/2 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
In a medium sized pot, mix all ingredients together and heat . You could caramelize the onion first, if you choose.
The zucchini does not to be cooked well for eating but if you want everything cooked, I would microwave this for about 2 minutes, tops.
Whatever is done, this was a good surprise which we like, really like.
