Tuesday’s Table ~ Stir Fried Sweet Corn

Welcome to this week’s Tuesday’s Table!

It would not be summer in the south without loads of sweet corn gracing our table. We of course love grilled corn on the cob, but with my middle son recently in the process of getting braces…I was looking for a way that he could enjoy this seasons crop without having to just cut if off the cob. Boring right? 😉 So upon doing a little research, I came up with a stir fry recipe that I tweaked to suit our little family. It was a massive hit. They ALL loved it. The icing on the cake is that it is a cinch to prepare! 

I wanted to share with you this fabulous recipe. If you like the taste of chili and corn together then I know you will love it too. 
I would like to acknowledge the very talented Jamie Oliver for the inspiration for this recipe. =) You can visit him over at Jamie Oliver’s Web Site. It is filled with delicious inspiration for any meal. 

Stir Fried Corn with Chili, Ginger & Parsley

4 to 5 ears of fresh sweet corn (husked, and cut away from the cob)
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh ginger (in a pinch I use about 1/2 teaspoon of dried ginger powder)
1 teaspoon of chili powder
A handful of fresh parsley, chopped coarsely
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons of Bragg’s liquid aminos (or you can substitute lite soy sauces for this)

In a large bowl, toss together the corn, ginger, chili powder, fresh parsley, and Bragg’s liquid aminos. 
On the stove in a large frying pan over medium heat, heat olive oil and butter. When butter is melted pour corn mixture into pan.
Stir fry until tender and flavors have melded. 
This is an excellent side dish for grilled meat. Enjoy!

*If you have never tried Bragg’s liquid Aminos. It is an excellent substitute for soy sauce that does not contain MSG. Since my daughter is allergic to MSG this is a good option for us. 

On a bit of a different note. Look at this adorableness! My 19 year old son came in with this cuteness yesterday evening. He picked it out, painted it and added the cute little basket of veggies and flour sacks himself. The two little green pom pom bushes are so sweet too. I couldn’t believe that he thought to do this all on his own.  He is such a sweetie and always doing nice things for me. 
Can’t wait to hang it on my porch for my bird friends to enjoy. 

Hope you have a fabulous Fourth of July or if you do not live in the good old USA…then I hope you have a very wonderful July 4th week!
