Summer Zucchini Stir-Fry




Ingredients:
2 tablespoons Land O'Lakes Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt
2 zucchini, cubed
2 ears worth of corn kernels
1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
3/4 lb fresh peas, hulled
1 1/2 teaspoon Tuscan seasoning
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
In a 12 inch skillet, melt the Land O Lakes Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. Add the zucchini, corn kernels, onion and peas. Stir fry until the vegetables begin to soften, about 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle with Tuscan seasoning, salt and pepper. Continue to stir fry until the vegetables are fully cooked, about 10 minutes.


My thoughts:
Land O'Lakes asked me a few other bloggers to come up with recipes using their butter with olive oil and sea salt. Since it was summer, I knew I had to make something with zucchini because who doesn't have some zucchini to use up? I also included some June peas which were in season at the time but tragically are out of season now. I think frozen peas might be just as good in this recipe but I haven't tried it out myself. I have to say, this is one of my favorite and easiest side dishes of the summer. Honestly, if you served it over quinoa or rice it could be a whole meal.
