Serves 1 person per ear of corn
Corn or maize has been around for thousands of years. It’s a pity that it’s one of the top GMO crops today. Given this fact, it’s best to buy fresh ears of corn from your local farmer’s market, CSA, or food coop. Corn is wonderful for stimulating the appetite, regulating digestion and promoting healthy gums and teeth. I’ve been eating it all summer and this is my favorite way to spice it up:
You will need:
2 ears of fresh corn (or more depending on your household)
water (enough to cover the corn in a large pot)
a heaping TBSP of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lime per ear of corn
2 TBSPs of nutritional yeast
SPICE MIXTURE: (1 tsp per year of corn)
chives, basil, and/or oregano
red pepper flakes (1/2 tsp only unless you like it HOT!)
a teeny bit of sea salt (to taste)
1) large pot for boiling corn 2) rectangle glass pan 3) large storage container with lid 4) tongs for retrieving corn
PREP it UP!
COOK it UP!
IF YOU CHOOSE TO BROIL:
Nutritional yeast and olive oil give it that cheesy/mayo feeling but without the extra un-healthy fat.
Serve with fresh lime, Bar-Bee-Que lentils, and green salad. IF you eat animals then I bet this will be yummy with pork chops, grilled fish, or even kangaroo.
