Miso Roasted Corn on the Cob


Gather ingredients. Preheat oven or grill to 375F. 

To make the corn: Shuck the corn. Break in half or leave whole, your preference. Rub the miso paste on the ears of corn. 
Place in a foil pouch. Add a couple tablespoons of water. Place the pouch in the preheated oven or grill for about 35 minutes, until tender. 

Garnish with scallions or chives and serve.

Chef's Tip: White miso has the most mild flavor while darker red and brown miso will bring richer, assertive flavor.  Miso can be made with a blend of soybeans, barley, and other grains.  If gluten-free is a concern, double-check the label.
