This is a recipe I invented as a quick, easy, and seasonal dinner that a 3 year old might [and sometimes does!] enjoy eating.


  • 5 ears of fresh corn
  • fistful of basil
  • basket of cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic if you're feeling it
4 servings


shuck that corn, girl

shave the corn off the cob with a sharp knife.

steam the corn for about 7 minutes
while that's happening:
saute your red pepper in olive oil, a bit of salt and pepper and garlic if you like garlic.

after 7 minutes, throw the corn into a festive bowl that has a nice color contrast to the vibrant yellow.

add your sauteed red pepper.
add the shredded basil.
salt and pepper to taste.
toss vigorously with tongs of some sort.
serve with a giant spoon.

20 minutes
