Roasted Corn and Garlic Rice

 Roasted Corn and Garlic Rice
"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."
