Sauteed Corn with Onions

19 Feb

I am in a use-up mode.  I told myself I was not returning to the supermarket until I have used up most of what I have on hand right now.

Has this happened to you?  That you eat mostly the same  – day-in day-out  – and you keep leaving in the pantry or the fridge stuff you bought at some point but can’t seem to get to cook it now.  That’s the worst kind of waste… when you need to throw stuff out because you didn’t get to prepare it.  I need to change my ways and put a stop to that!!!!

So I looked in my freezer and I found a bag of frozen corn…  what to do with it???  I started to improvise and this is what came about…



 1 cup frozen corn – I am sure that this would work with fresh corn too
1 tbs olive oil
1/4 onion – sliced
2 tbs crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce – I used Tomates Fritos from Viter with a little crushed tomatoes I had leftover.
Garlic Salt to taste
  1. Pour olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.  Pour in the frozen corn and the onions and stir to coat with the olive oil.  Cover so the steam generated cooks and soften the corn and onions.
  2. About 5-10 minutes later, pour in the crushed tomatoes and season with garlic salt. 
  3. Sautee for a few minutes more until the corn is thoroughly cooked.
  4. Serve warm.

I was completely surprised on how good this tasted.  It was a step up from boiled corn with a little butter.  The gamble paid off.  I hope you like it too.  I served this originally with my Creamy Potatoes.  And later on served it as part of this salad…

    This is really really good, I make it all the time now. I would’ve never thought to combine these ingredients but it works! It’s the perfect side dish for just about anything. Thanks for posting this and keep ’em coming! =)
