    Steam or boil the remaining corn until it is soft and
   sweet to the taste (5 to 10 minutes). drain the corn,
   reserving the liquid, if there is any. Add enough
   water tomake up 1 cup. Blend the corn with the liquid
   and add this puree to the sauteed vegetables. Mix all
   of the ingredients, heat through, and serve. Garnish
