Corn is good in anything. Fresh from the garden corn on the cob is the best. Corn kugel, soup, salad, side are all delicious. Corn with black beans is a treat. I really like corn and don't use it enough. I have forgotten where I found this recipe and I have altered it quite a bit but it turned out to be delicious. I do have leftovers and I plan to use my immersion blender to make it smoother.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 small red potatoes, chopped
2 cups sweet corn (fresh or frozen)
2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 can lite coconut milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 cups fresh baby spinach
Heat oil in large, heavy saucepan over medium heat.
Add onion and celery, and sauté 5 minutes, or until soft.
Add potatoes and corn and cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add broth, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
Stir in coconut milk and parsley. Heat for 5 minutes.
At the last moment stir in spinach and cook for another minute.
Eat and enjoy.

Brussels sprouts like broccoli and cabbage are cruciferous. This group offers a unique composition of antioxidants that may provide several health benefits. Brussels sprouts are low in calories and offer protein, vitamins and minerals to help build a healthy human. My first issue with brussels sprouts is that it took me years to spell it correctly. Each time, it came up, in writing, and I admit, that was not too often, I would stare into space asking myself does brussel get an S, at the end or is it sprout that gets the S. For some reason, I could not remember that both end with that S. I am happy to tell you, I overcame thi
It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace. Kayte selected this recipe from On the Shelf on page 124. I tried it with the greens and it was very good and then I put it on spaghetti and it was spectacular. My toddler granddaughter even liked it. Must have been the hot sauce. I used romaine for the greens and I subbed in red pepper and added some Sirracha to spice it up to make up for the real chilis. Do check out the other cooks' dishes at our Wednesday with Donna Hay site.

That week, we concentrated on carrots. I like to check out our vegetable, not only for health benefits, but also for the names of their sisters. Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill. I didn't have a clue about many of these. I, have never seen carrots of other colors or at least, if I had, I didn't know, they were carrots. I am going to a good produce store, looking for purple or red carrots, to start my search. It is fun, shopping when purposely looking for new vegetables. I have definitely expanded my horizons. When, I was thinking about what to make with carrots, I
