GRILLED CORN WITH PESTO
ears corn, husks and silks removed (I only use Silver Queen)
½ cup olive oil, plus more for brushing
3 cups basil leaves
½ cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
5 oz. grated Parmesan
3 cloves garlic, peeled
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Note: You can also use store bought pesto if pressed for time. It’ll still be delicious!
Purée ½ cup oil with basil, nuts, Parmesan, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor.
Heat a charcoal grill or set a gas grill to high; bank coals or turn off burner on one side. Brush corn with pesto and grill until kernels are slightly charred and tender, 8-10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
