My hubby and I went to Iowa last week to visit my family. We brought home SWEET CORN! If you've never had Iowa sweet corn you have not lived a full life. It's still early season, but it is so tasty.
Corn is a whole grain! Fantastic! But we typically drown it in butter and salt which makes it much more of a 20 than an 80. This delicious twist keeps it as an 80! Cumin is a spice with anti-carcinogenic properties as well as iron and manganese, which makes it a terrific addition to any food.
Cumin Cilantro Corn-on-the-Cob
4 ears sweet corn, shucked
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1. Soak ears of corn in water for 20 minutes.
2. Preheat grill.
3. Mix cumin and sea salt in a small bowl and set aside. Place 3 Tbsp in another bowl, then use a brush to lightly spread oil onto soaked corn. Sprinkle cumin/salt mixture onto each ear, then sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
4. Wrap each ear tightly in aluminum foil.
5. Place corn on the grill over medium heat for 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately!
