  • ¼ cup Challenge Butter

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic

  • 2 small zucchini, diced (3 to 3½ cups)

  • 4 cups frozen whole kernel corn or leftover Butter Bath Corn cut from the cob

  • ¼ cup water (or use some leftover water from the corn butter bath)

Additional Ingredients if Desired

  1. Melt butter over in a large skillet over medium heat.

  2. When butter begins to foam, add zucchini and garlic; sauté until tender – about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Stir in corn and water; continue to cook, stirring frequently until corn is tender and most of the liquid has evaporated - additional 2 to 3 minutes.
