Stir Fried Corn and Leek with Fresh Basil
The cumin really helps balance out the natural sweetness in the corn, without adding too much heat to the finished dish.
2 Cups corn (4 Ears Shucked and cleaned)
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1-2 Leek Stalks, white and soft green parts only
Salt and Pepper
2-3 Tablespoons Fresh Basil, chopped
1-2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Heat the butter (or vegetable oil) in a skillet over medium heat.
Slice the leek, and add to the skillet and cook down until tender and slightly wilted. 3-5 minutes. Season with cumin, salt and pepper.
Add the corn and stir fry until corn is heated through and tender, only about 5-10 minutes.
Stir in the fresh basil and drizzle the lemon juice over top.
Serves roughly 4.
