Who needs a barbecue grill when you can get the same delicious taste by roasting food in the oven? Not only is this dish full of flavors and textures, but corn is also incredibly healthy, hearty and filled with raw nutrients that will nourish your body and soul.
Roasted Corn with Herbed Coconut Oil
3 fresh corns on the cob [trim stems, discard husk, wash & dry with a paper towel]
6 garlic cloves [peeled]
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
½ teaspoon of kosher salt
¼ teaspoon of ground peppercorns
½ teaspoon smoked paprika [spice]
½ teaspoon oregano [dried]
½ teaspoon basil [dried]
¾ cup of Queso Fresco or Tofu/ Soy cheese [crumbled]
¼ cup Cilantro leaves
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor or in a blender add in coconut oil, garlic, kosher salt and the rest of the spices. Blend until it becomes emulsified to the consistency of a vinaigrette. Pour the herbed oil into a small bowl and set aside. Place the corns on top of a baking sheet and start by taking a cooking brush and evenly brushing the herbed coconut oil onto each corn. Place the herbed corns into the oven and roast them for 45-50 minutes. Once roasted, place them in a serving platter and sprinkle the cheese and cilantro on top. Serve and enjoy!
Tip – If there’s leftover coconut herbed oil, brush the rest on the roasted corns then add crumbled cheese and cilantro for an extra kick.
