Lately, I’ve been on a mission to get my kids eating more veggies.
But today I’m letting the natural sweetness of sweetcorn do all the hard work for me.
We intensify the glorious yellow hue and natural candy like flavour by roasting [rather than boiling] the sweetcorn.
By seasoning the corn with a little salt and olive oil and wrapping in a foil parcel – we trap all of the wonderful flavour into the cobs of corn destined for tiny hands [and hungry tummies].
Grace and Harry love love love sweet corn roasted like this for dinner [alongside a little chicken, broccoli and cheese – super simple] or even nestled in their lunch boxes.
I have a feeling your kids are going to love it too!
This sweetcorn recipe is also your perfect chance to get your kids into the kitchen.
Removing the husks, drizzling the corn with olive oil and wrapping the parcel up nice and tight – are great [and super simple] tasks your child will love.
To make your own super simple roast sweetcorn simply…
Begin by washing and drying your hands with your child.
Set them up safely at the kitchen bench OR small table. Grace feels confident standing on a stool – but when she was younger I would pop her kids sized table into the middle of the kitchen and get Gracie to work at the table.
Read the recipe together and collect the ingredients needed – naming them as you go.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (350 F) and line an oven tray with a large piece of aluminium foil. Set aside.
Ask your child to hold the ear of corn and remove the husk.
Using a sharp knife, chop each ear of corn into 4 pieces.
Arrange the corn pieces on the foil. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil.
Close the foil to create a parcel.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the corn is tender.
