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

2c water

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.
