Rice makes a regular appearance on most dinner tables, so keeping this side dish fresh and exciting can be a challenge. Adding the charred sweet taste of caramelized onions and roasted corn only takes another minute or two of prep, but adds an incredible element texture and flavor.
Use a thinly bladed boning knife or even a steak knife to remove the fresh corn kernels from the cob. Balance the cob vertically in a shallow dish, such as a glass pie plate, and cut off the kernels using downward strokes of your knife blade. For even quicker prep, substitute fresh frozen corn kernels.
