Corn with Miso Butter

corn with miso butter

Before moving to New Jersey, many told us we were moving to the land of tomatoes and corn. So far, they have been right.

Here is a quick, easy dish that takes advantage of all the delicious fresh corn out there. We had corn last night for dinner and I had one ear leftover. This recipe can be made with one ear for a single serving or a big bunch of corn for a large group. The corn can be boiled, steamed, or grilled.

Corn with Miso Butter

(measurements for 1 ear of corn)

1/2 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon miso paste (I used white)

1 tablespoon water

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon ground mustard

1 cooked ear of corn – kernels cut off of cob

1 tablespoon chives – chopped

salt and pepper

In a small pan over medium heat, melt butter, miso, and water. Add ginger and mustard. Once mixture begins to bubble, add corn. Toss to coat and to heat through. Add almost all of the chives, save some for garnish. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Once corn is heated through, remove from heat and pour into bowl. Top with extra chives and serve. This dish is good hot or at room temp. Enjoy! IMG_2764

Month Through My Lens: June 2014

IMG_7890
Hello everyone! Long time no blog! Sorry for the pause in posts. Life has been jam packed these last two months. Between work, vacations, and life in general, J and I have had a full plate. The largest reason I have been absent on the blog is J and I had to pack up our life in Pennsylvania for a new adventure in New Jersey! J accepted a job at Rutgers University, so we made the move to NJ. In less than a month we totally relocated and are now surrounded by boxes and bubble wrap as we make our new home feel like home.

So, to make up for lost time, let’s rewind and I’ll show you what my June looked like. Enjoy the photos!

We took a trip to Virginia Beach, VA to visit some friends and play in a beach Ultimate Frisbee tournament. This photo is in the tunnel on the way to VA.
