5 Ways to Eat Corn This Summer July 22, 2020
Summer is the season of corn and we’re celebrating with 5 ways to eat corn this summer.
We’re at the start of corn season in Canada and we think that calls for a celebration! It’s the time of year for the sweet, juicy golden corn that’s worth eating at every meal! Grilled, buttered corn is great but it’s always fun to change it up from time to time.
Corn is a delicious crop often used in many processed foods like tortillas, corn flour, corn syrup, corn oil, and so much more! However sometimes you need to enjoy it in its whole, natural state – so we’re sharing 5 delicious ways to eat corn.
A bowl is a great way to include bounds of fresh seasonal produce, and that includes corn! Whether it’s a power bowl or a burrito bowl, adding corn is sure to give your dinner some delicious summer flavour. Try our Honey and Lime Chicken for a bright and flavourful weeknight dinner that comes together in just 30 minutes! Or opt for our top-rated Turkey Burrito Bowl where turkey takes centre stage with cilantro-lime rice as its co-star.
