Corn with Black Garlic and Parmesan

Recipe: Corn with Black Garlic and Parmesan

Summary: The last of the summer corn gets star treatment in a bath of garlicky olive oil and Parmesan. Rich, fruity, savory Black Garlic gives is a complex taste with loads of umami. This is perfect with roast chicken or turkey (Thanksgiving, anyone?).


  • Corn with Black Garlic and Parmesan on ShockinglyDelicious.com [1]5 ears fresh corn, shucked (about 3 cups kernels)
  • 4 cloves Black Garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cut the kernels off the corn cobs and put into a microwave-safe container with a lid. You should have about 3 cups of corn (amount is not strictly important; a little more or less is fine).
  2. In a tiny food processor, whirl the Black Garlic cloves and olive oil until the garlic is very finely chopped. You may also do this step by hand mincing the garlic, or mashing it in a mortar and pestle.
  3. Stir the garlicky oil into the corn and micro cook it on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, stir and micro cook another 1 minute.
  4. Taste to see if it needs salt and add a pinch if it does. (Some Parmesan is saltier than others, so you will need to taste it for yourself.)
  5. Stir and serve.
  6. Serves 4-5.
