Sauteed Zucchini and Corn

Do you ever struggle to find a good side dish? I’m just not a big fan of microwaved frozen veggies. Fresh or lightly steamed vegetables can be simple and delicious, but when I want a nice vegetable blend, I pick something more like this recipe.

Sauteed is my favorite way to fix zucchini. I like to have it a little browned like it is here. Maybe I’m prejudiced because I’m from Iowa, but corn is a great partner to zucchini in texture, in color, shape and flavor. Put these in the pan with some onion and we’re well on our way to a fast and colorful side dish. My secret ingredient though is the chicken bouillon that I sprinkle on instead of salt and pepper.

Perfect for summer! Sauteed Zucchini and Corn goes so well with any grilled meat or cool summer sandwiches.
