There's few things as satisfying in life as simple food done really well.
Over the years, I've enjoyed finding more and more ways to demonstrate exactly this in my own life.
And as always with my mantra of simple, delicious, nutritious + fast!
These aren't just words either.
When I create wholefoods recipes with this intention, it means the idea sticks. So when life gets crazy (because yes it does), I've got a whole mental collection of go-to recipes that satisfy and nourish - without stress, drama or a million dollars at the supermarket.
Sounds good right?
It's kind of like the lessons I learnt from my incredible grandmother, who perhaps like yours had a whole mental filing cabinet of go-to recipes for anything and everything!
Same deal. And it's awesome.
Corn is a glorious summer vegetable in Australia.
The whole boiled corn cob thing though? Not the most enticing, exciting or nutritious as you boil out so much nutrition!
So I took this simple vegetable and added the simple idea of grilling, or BBQ-ing which is again, very much a summer activity.
Then, because I truly did learn so much from my grandmother, I decided to create a seriously fast and delicious paprika butter to accompany the grilled corn.
(My grandmother was born in Hungary and paprika is essentially the national spice).
A little Mexican, Australian and Hungarian inspired is this dish and like all things I create - it truly is as simple to make as it sounds!
A tasty and satisfying side or snack that’s ready to go in moments.
