My mother would sauté the fresh kernels in a little butter with cumin seed, black pepper, lemon, and cilantro. I’ve adapted her recipe by using chopped basil and leeks I received in my farm share one year; simple to prepare but bursting with summer flavors. This dish is great as a hot side and also delicious cold and mixed into salads.
