Colorful stacks of fresh local vegetables are practically bouncing off the market shelves and bins these days, and there may be no better way to enjoy the vibrant fresh tastes of the local produce than to fry them in plenty of good quality churned butter. I'm especially smitten with slathering butter on ears of amazingly sweet local corn, but I can't resist all of the other local vegetables either — tomatoes, green beans, garden peas, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, potatoes, beets, radishes, carrots and so many more. It's been a bumper crop this year, so why restrict yourself? Fry up a bunch of these seasonal goodies in one pan, and you've got an extraordinarily flavorful, colorful and wholesome plate that will be gone in no time.
As with any stir-fry, this one is easily adaptable to suit your preferences. Take advantage of what is local in your region and toss in any vegetables that are nearing the end of their shelf life. Certainly this dish is a perfect way to get your daily quotient of veggie goodness. Serve as a light meal with some bread or as a side with pretty much any meal you can think of.
