Frozen sweet corn and mixed vegetables are the staples in my freezer.   They are always my life-saver.

Sometimes, things happen all of a sudden that I need to change my dinner plan, such as having a surprised guest or a dinner with more people showing up than expected.  This is the perfect and easy side dish to put vegetables on the table in no time.

I know microwave is our best friend at home. But it is always nice to cook and serve something from the stove top instead of the microwave.

So, I put together this recipe with 2 methods. Feel free to pick either one per your preference.


With this same easy cook food recipe, I also use it in frozen or canned mixed vegetables. 

I even use one part of mixed vegetables and one part of corn kernels combined together.  If that’s what you are doing, make sure everything is either frozen or canned.  Do NOT combine one part frozen and the other part as canned vegetables.  Their cook time varies.  It will end up some overcooked and the rest undercooked.

The recipe below shows you the basic.  Salt and pepper is always a safe choice.  You can always kicking up a notch by adding about ½-1 tsp of Herbs de Provence or Italian Seasoning.  If you like some heat, add a little bit of cayenne pepper or Cajun seasoning.
