Teriyaki Grilled Corn

Kids - and grownups, too - love this simple dish. The sauce can be prepared several days in advance and refrigerated until grilling time.

Serves 6


1 tablespoon organic brown sugar
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon potato starch or whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons purified water
1 to 2 teaspoons sesame seeds (optional, but delicious)
6 ears fresh corn


COMBINE: all the ingredients except the corn in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat and simmer 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

PREPARE: the grill. Remove the husks from the corn. Grill covered, for 5 to 10 minutes. When almost done, baste the corn 2 or 3 times with the glaze.

SERVING SUGGESTION: This is a delicious side dish to grass fed BBQ chicken breast and mixed green salad with light vinaigrette dressing.
