  • 2 ears fresh corn on the cob kernels removed (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 2 small zucchini diced the same size as the corn kernels (about 1 ½ cups)
  • ½ cup diced or sliced peppers you could use any kind of pepper you like, I used a sweet Hungarian pepper in this one, but have used bell peppers, jalapeno peppers and California peppers
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • cup toasted pine nuts
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Fresh sliced or torn basil optional


  • The Saute Method: Heat the oil and butter together in a large skillet over medium heat, add the corn, zucchini, and peppers.
    Saute, stirring occasionally until crisp-tender; removed from heat and add the pine nuts. Season with salt and pepper, toss with fresh basil, if using, and serve.
  • The Stir-Fry Method: Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet or wok over high heat; add the corn, zucchini, and peppers. Cook, stirring until the vegetables are soft with browned edges. Remove from heat; add the pine nuts. Adjust seasonings and toss with fresh basil.
