Everything is local, happening right now and absolutely fabulous tasting- so simple.
Simple Summer Broccoli, Potato & Corn Bowl
1 crown of broccoli, peeled, de-stemmed, cut into florets
1 medium size red or thin skinned potato, scrubbed, large dice
1/4 medium onion, small dice
1/2 ear fresh corn, shaved from the cob (niblets)
salt and peper to taste
1T olive oil
1/2 jalapeño or cherry bomb pepper
Bring water to a boil.
In a medium size soup pot, add the oil and sauté the onions until golden and soft. Add the potatoes, salt, jalapeño and black pepper. Cover with about 1 1/2cups of water and then cover partially to steam the potatoes- about 10 minutes. Add in the broccoli and corn when the potatoes are tender. Steam just until the broccoli is bright green and tender.
Serve with just a little bit of the broth in a shallow bowl, drizzled with more olive oil, salt & pepper.
