Mouth-Watering Roasted Corn on the Cob

FullSizeRender-186

It’s mid-May and Memorial Day is around the corner which means one thing—it’s time to seriously chow down on some fresh and mouth-watering corn on the cob. Fortunately, we have a melt in your mouth and very easy recipe, but even better is that Time magazine has named corn as one of the top 100 healthiest foods! According to Time, one ear of corn has the same number of calories as an apple with equally high nutrient levels. Organic (non genetically modified corn) corn is also loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals that promote healthy vision. And, one ear of corn has 3 grams of fiber, which means that if you eat two ears of corn for dinner, that’s an automatic 6 grams of filling fiber. Dare you to only eat one!

Ingredients:
8 ears of corn
3-4 TBSP of melted organic butter
Sea Salt and Pepper
Cayenne pepper (only if you want some extra pop)

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400.
Line baking sheet with foil and arrange ears of corn (husks removed) on sheet. Dip pastry or basting brush in melted butter and brush butter on corn. Generously sprinkle sea salt and pepper and conservatively dash cayanne. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until a little browning occurs. Turn corn occasionally. Remove corn from oven and brush with extra butter. Sink your teeth in the moist and delicious corn…and enjoy!

    Seriously, this is THE MOST DELICIOUS corn on the cob I have ever eaten. In fact, both the kids and I (3 and 5 year olds) ate two each. It is so easy and scrumptious! I hope you try it! Neissa
