  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 green onions (scallions), finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 4 to 6 ears corn, kernels cut from the cob
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup mild feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, dill or basil (optional)

Serves 4 to 6 as a side

  1. In a large skillet heat the butter over medium heat until melted and foamy. Add the chopped green onions and garlic and cook until soft, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the corn kernels, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes more.
  3. Add the milk and cook for 1 minute more, stirring constantly, or just until heated through. Taste and add more salt and pepper as desired. Toss with the feta and fresh herbs (if using) and serve immediately.

Thanks. I have just started getting into the kitchen. My wife is a southern style cook and likes to make just about everything fried and unhealthy as possible. As I am about to hit the 40 yr old mark, I can't continue to eat this way unless I want to keep seeing those strange looks on my doctors face when he gets my yearly labs back. In other words, for the sake of my family's health, I have decided to take over the kitchen. Hopefully, I can do this without offending anyone. Thanks for the tips!
