Roasted Corn and Garlic Rice Recipe

Publisher Photo
"I usually roast quite a few ears of corn when they are on sale and freeze what I don't use at that time," writes Marilyn Rodriguez of Fairbanks, Alaska. "This is a wonderful side dish to go with a fish fry, barbecue or almost any summer meal. It's a constant at my house."

Ingredients

  • 4 ears sweet corn in husks
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Carefully peel back husks from corn to within 1-in. of bottom; remove silk. Rewrap corn in husks. Place garlic cloves on a piece of heavy-duty foil; drizzle with 1/4 teaspoon oil. Fold foil around garlic and seal tightly. Place corn and garlic directly on oven rack. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Remove corn; bake garlic 5-10 minutes longer or until softened.
  2. Remove garlic from foil and place in a small bowl; cool. Mash with a fork. When corn is cool enough to handle, remove corn from cobs with a sharp knife.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add rice; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Gradually add the broth, bay leaf, salt, pepper and roasted garlic. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-13 minutes or until heated through. Stir in roasted corn; cover and cook 7-10 minutes longer or until rice is tender. Discard bay leaf. Yield: 4 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2010

I didn't have ears of corn so I thawed frozen corn,made sure it was drained well and sauted in butter til browned. I deglazed the pan with a little white wine. I only use brown rice so cooked it separately with the broth and seasonings. Mixed the two together and it had great flavor. Huge roasted garlic fan, so this is a recipe I will make again.
