Recipe

Colorful and popular with children, this is a good side dish for everyday meals.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: 8 Mins

Ingredients

  • 4 ears of corn
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 scallions, green and white parts, sliced
  • ½ small green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • ½ small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Remove the husks and silks from the corn. Using a sharp knife, cut the corn kernels from the cobs. Break up any kernels that are stuck together.
