Zucchini and Corn Casserole

Zucchini and Corn Casserole

The garden is planted and growing beautifully. Last week we dug up the first crop of potatoes. Yum, my favorite. I can’t wait to start harvesting some of my other favorite vegetables too. This recipe features a couple of garden classics, zucchini and corn. The corn is used 2 ways. First it’s sautéd along with the zucchini and then the rest is blended with milk to make a rich and creamy sauce. This dish is a step up from plain old corn on the cob. It’s ideal for a potluck too. Dig in and enjoy.

Ingredients:

  • 3 zucchini, quartered lengthwise and then diced into 1/2 inch pieces (2 cups diced)
  • 1 cup diced onion

  • 1 cup soy milk or other non-dairy milk
