I swear. The best eating in the world in Iowa is mid-July to the end of September. The gardens are BUSY and fresh fruits and veggies are in abundance. It is so my favorite time of the year to eat..and eat and eat!! Happily, it typically isn’t high-calorie food so it’s okay.
Like most people, I am always looking for ways to eat up extra zucchinis and today I have my latest rendition. I just more or less morphed sweet corn into Zucchini Hash…and I love it! This was my lunch.
I started out with… zucchini, onion, sweet corn, and some cilantro.
The ratios really don’t matter. Use up whatever you have.
I put 3 Tablespoons of butter in the bottom of the frying pan, chopped the cilantro, onion, and zucchini, and started frying. As that was frying, I cut the corn off of the cob. If you don’t have corn on the cob, a can of corn can work. Then I added the corn.
I fry it together until the zucchini has that translucent look.
Then I added a tablespoon of lime juice, a bit of Yum Yum Sauce (Mayonaise if I don’t have it and parmesan cheese.
Oh, my word…I could eat this all day long. I love the mixture of flavors and I love that it uses up another zucchini. I love those things but boy are they ever abundant!!
Not everyone here likes the spice tajin. I do so I make it as is and then let others add spice as they wish.
When I’ve written about tajin in the past, some of you don’t know what it is…this…If you can’t find it in the spice section, it’s sometimes in the Mexican food section…or it’s HERE on Amazon.
I’ll be eating this OFTEN over the next month or two. Being lunch is often just me. I make a big bowl and don’t eat anything else. YUM!!
