Corn and Green Bean Sauté with Adobo

There is really no “great” story that goes with the creation of this recipe, except that its beginnings were deeply rooted in the recipe index of Epicurious (ie: this recipe).  But really – my stubborn inner child whined for a simpler meal, one without coconut – although it looked yummy!  I feel like that pre-pubescence teen at the clothing store – or that three year old bundle of cuteness screaming and grabbing at all candy within arm’s reach.  Watch out, innocent by-standers.  You’re next.

I digress.

Hulk, meet: yellow corn sweetness.  Enjoy! Corn and Green Bean Saute with Adobo

And when you’re done sautéing, whip up some of this mesquite tofu and toss it together.  It’s a great combination – like North Carolina and speed traps or Eddie Vedder and a ukelele.
