Roasted Corn Tabouli Recipe on WhiteOnRiceCouple.com
For some reason when August rolls around it feels as if it is our last chance at eating corn. And by eating corn we mean the super good, freshly-picked, wipe the chin, juicy sweet corn.  Once September arrives everyone seems to be ready to immediately switch seasonal gears and it’s all about Autumn. As July comes to an end, we’re indulging in as much sweet Summer corn recipes as possible before the fall squash start filling the stalls and stands. 
 
To savor every sweet kernel we’ve grilled corn on the cob, made fire roasted corn salads and are attempting to eat our weight in the sweetest kernals we can find. One of our favorite corn salads of the season is our roasted corn tabouli. Think of the classic tabouli but with added pops of sweet corn. Every bite will remind you of how wonderful Summer produce is and how you only have about a month left to appreciate the best that the season has to offer.

Last week we didn’t get our corn-fix in because we spent time in Mammoth to celebrate Todd’s birthday week. Birthday week, not just day. That’s how we celebrate over here in the WORC household. Instead of one day celebrations, we try to give ourselves a week of spoiling the Birthday Boy (or girl or pup). Why not? Birthdays only come once a year and to limit the indulgence in cake to a single day seems like a waste, don’t ‘cha think?

We gave ourselves a week and spent time hiking and fishing in the gorgeous outdoors of Mammoth Mountain Lakes and Devils Post Pile National Monument. If you’ve never been to that side of the Eastern Sierras, put it on your bucket-list. The lakes there are post-card-perfect and beautiful. There’s something for everyone there in the Summer. And if you have time to head back in Winter, there’s tons of great skiing. That’s where we’re headed this Winter! 
 
So now that we’re back home, what’s next on our Ode to Corn list? Perhaps a sweet cornbread made with fresh shucked kernals. Fingers crossed we can finalize a recipe for you before August ends! 
 
Enjoy, 
Diane and Todd

Roasted Corn Tabouli

Yield: Serves 4-6

Total Time: 1 hour

Recipe is from our cookbook, Bountiful. Homemade tabouli made with a mix of fresh parley and mint leaves is such a treat, especially when we add in roasted corn. The sweet pops of corn kernels in this salad make it one of the highlights of summer. If you really love your corn, just double the amount of roasted corn in the recipe. You won’t be disappointed.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (140g) uncooked bulgur
  • 3 medium ears corn, husks and kernels removed
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (30g) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup (40g) chopped fresh mint leaves
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven 450°F (230°C).
  2. In a saucepan, combine the bulgur with 2 cups (480ml) water. Bring the water to a boil, then remove the pan from the heat. Cover, and allow to sit for 20 minutes, until the water has been absorbed. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a bowl, combine the corn kernels with 2 tablespoons of the oil and toss to coat. Arrange the kernels in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Allow to cool.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the bulgur, corn kernels, parsley, and mint. In small bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, salt, cayenne, and pepper to taste.
  5. Add the lemon juice mixture into the corn mixture and chill for 15 minutes before serving.

It’s still a shock to us that half the year is almost over and that we’re entering the end of June. Still, what is more of a shock? That 4th of July is next week and we’re in June mode. Our abrupt reminder was last night when someone ignited some illegal fireworks in our neighborhood […]

To be a host, party-giver, entertainer. For us one of the most important priorities is to make sure everyone feels included. Wether it is clients at the studio for a shoot, or if we are hosting one of our photography/styling workshops, or if it is just friends over at the house, that sense of inclusion […]

Way back in 2003 when Todd was managing Cafe Zinc, we would often have staff parties at the house. It was always a blast because everyone was able to wind down, relax and be able to be fed food instead of having the role of feeding others all day long. Todd and I would spend […]

Four and a half months of planning with Creativelive came down to three days. Those three days were so lightening fast, it was hard to remember what happened even ten minutes prior. And to think that we considered to not partake in teaching because we didn’t think we could share anything different that hasn’t already […]

Last week we had a heat wave that lasted five days of hot, dry, Santa-Ana windy weather above 95 degrees. We were dying over here, so to make it bearable we ate lots of blackberry mojito pops. That’s how to cool down and freshen spirits in style! But mojito pops wasn’t all that we nourished […]

Yes, adding kale can justify mac and cheese being “healthier”, can’t it? Please say yes because that’s what my conscience was telling me when I wanted to combine two of my top 25 foods all in one pot. Perhaps I’m making up lost time as a kid when all I wanted to eat was mac […]

The Winter Olympics are here and we’re trying our hardest to sneak in as much spectator time as possible, on television, that is. There’s so much that we love about the Olympics, but it’s the personal stories that make watching the events so special. We all have our dreams to pursue and to see someone […]

It’s always around this time of year that we begin swimming in citrus and every meal (and drink!) has some splash of fragrant juice. You can call it a garden obsession, but we’re not far from being finished. Last week we planted another (our third) blood orange tree and it wasn’t in-celebration to grow more, […]

This is the unabashed, meat-lovers edition of pork. Apologies if the photo is an abrupt, in-your-face visual of juicy and saucy pork in its entirety. In fact, there’s no scattering of pretty garnish nor greens nor linen-pretty. It’s a delicious and amazing pulled pork dish and that’s pretty much all we wanted to share with […]

It was last month that we photographed an assignment that involved way too many quinoa recipes. How many exactly? Let’s just say that we were blinded by quinoa grains and couldn’t stomach another bite of anything whole grain. It was an assignment that could have benefited our personal health, unlike some chocolate and cocktail shoots […]
