Servings: 4 people


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large shallots peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 6 ounces green beans trimmed and cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 2 ears fresh corn kernels removed
  • 2 large fresh tomatoes cored and diced
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Wash and dry all the fresh ingredients. Remove the corn from kernels using a paring knife or a very cool gadget to remove corn from the cob. Discard the cob.
  • Mince the garlic and thinly slice the shallots, trim the green beans and cut them into ½ inch pieces.
  • Core the tomatoes, cut into quarters and remove the seeds. Dice the rest of the tomato into small pieces.
  • Heat up a medium sized non-stick pan over medium heat until hot, add oil and when it gets hot add the shallots and garlic. Cook for a minute or two until the shallots soften and the garlic becomes fragrant.
    Prevent burning by stirring frequently.
  • Add the corn and cut green beans, stir and season with some salt and pepper. Cook for 8 - 10 minutes, again stirring frequently to prevent any burning.
  • Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 - 5 minutes until the tomatoes soften. Again, stir frequently to prevent burning.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • When plating, spoon some of the vegetables onto the center of a plate and top with a cooked piece of fish, chicken or your favorite meat cut and top with some sort of garnish.
