Curried Corn with Chilis

I love this whole grain side dish. The spicy nature of the curry brings out the best in the sweet corn creating a truly vitalizing dish. Just be sure to use organic corn…don’t want any nasty GMO’s in your lovely meal.

Ingredient List: 

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 bunch green onions, minced
