Corn and Tomato Scramble

Author Notes:

This recipe is adapted from a recipe in Gourmet July, 2009. It is absolutely delicious and hard to stop eating. The original recipe calls for 2 Tb of oil for the dressing and 2 Tb of butter for sauteeing the scallions and corn. It also calls for 3/4 tsp of salt for the dressing. All this is not necessary as well as not healthful. The sweetness of the corn and tomatoes with a pinch of salt speak for themselves.


Serves: 4

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 pounds tomatoes (heirloom) in bite-sized chunks
  • 1 bunch scallions-chopped, keep white and green parts separate
  • a little Smart Balance
  • 4 cups corn kernels (from about 4 ears)
  1. Whisk together oil, vinegar, pinch of salt, 1/4 tsp pepper. Toss cut tomatoes with dressing.
  2. While the tomatoes are marinating, saute the white parts of the scallions in a little smart balance with a pinch of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper in a skillet over medium-high heat until golden (about 4 mins.)
  3. Add corn and saute until just tender (about 5 mins.)
  4. Add corn to tomatoes, add scallion greens and toss. Also wonderful with additional herbs.
