14 minutes, sweetcorn, spices & a frying pan = Charred Paprika Turmeric Corn Cobs! This gorgeous side dish could not be more simple, and it could not be more SCRUMPTIOUS! I’m not sure anyone could say no to these corn cobs…
The bright golden-yellow colour of the sweetcorn, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with Paprika, one of my all time favourite spices to use on just about anything! Did you know that it’s made by grinding bell peppers and chilli peppers together? The Paprika adds a sweet, smokey flavour, and contains many vitamins and minerals. The Turmeric gives a little kick and a slight curry note. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.

All in all, these Charred Paprika Turmeric Corn Cobs couldn’t be better for you, or a more lovely dish to add to your lunch or dinner table!
They only take about 14 minutes from prep to table, which is pretty doable even if you’re pushed for time. And charring them this way locks in all that amazing, sweetcorn flavour without them becoming watery. Also, who doesn’t love a little charred goodness on their food??!! I LOVE it.
Enjoying “Meatless Mondays” in your household? These are a completely delicious meal all on their own! I like to have these with half an avocado and some baby spinach and I’m one HAPPY chappy.
A perfect addition to your Spring, Summer recipes, you can make these on the barbecue if you’re cooking outside! And over here in SA we’ll be enjoying food like this all through our mild winter. I’m looking forward to all the outdoor feasting and tasty winter produce.
I encourage you to make these Charred Paprika Turmeric Corn Cobs soon, I’m convinced you will love them as much as I do and they will become a staple in your household! Let me know what you think of them!!
