Big Green Corn

CORN IS AWESOME, corn is like the bacon of vegetables but contrary to popular belief, corn IS good for you. It contains tons of fiber and it is a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, compounds that help keep your eyes healthy as you age.
This is a totally easy recipe and healthier than boiling corn and dipping it in butter. I use olive oil in stead of butter. I love olive oil and the result really tastes the same as butter. No one ever realizes that they’re eating corn with olive oil in stead of butter.

Ingredients

  • Corn on the cob
  • Olive oil
  • Salt (we used truffle salt today)
  • tin foil

Preparation
Make “boats” of pieces of tin foil that are large enough to hold fold a cob in loosely.  Put a cob in a ‘boat’ and add olive oil and salt.
