Bacon, Corn & Asparagus Saute

hudson house food 082 A delicious medley of thick-cut bacon, sweet corn, fresh asparagus and silky shallots.  Because really, who doesn’t love bacon?!

For a while I was on a kick of just eating vegetables, whole grains and fruits and a very minimal amount of meat – which I still do, only today I really needed a bacon fix.

If you stop in to your local Whole Foods, ask the butcher about the dry-rubbed, in-house thick cut bacon they have.  When you combine it with shallots and let it cook away, it’s just absolute heaven.

This time I just sauteed the veggie, but you can also peel it into “noodles” or roast them in a simple olive oil and s&p drizzle.  You can wrap prosciutto and phylo around them or just eat them steamed and dipped into dijon mustard.  Asparagus has so many anti inflammatory properties with tons of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to keep you healthy.  I just love asparagus.

I made this with my Orange Glazed Salmon and it was a serious winner.
