This is one of our family’s favorite side dishes!
It is easy to prepare, doesn’t take long, and tastes wonderful. It’s simple enough for a weeknight dinner but elegant enough for guests.
I usually make this dish with wild rice, but the photo shows it made with black rice. It tastes great both ways, so try it using what you have on hand.
Either way, you’re sure to enjoy this one.
This recipe feeds my family of 4. Feel free to double it for a larger family or for a crowd.

2 cups of water
2 Tablespoons of Butter (optional, but adds great flavor. I used salted.)
10 oz. Frozen Corn (canned or fresh work well, too)
Dash of Red Pepper (optional)
In a medium sauce pan, cook rice in water for 25 – 30 minutes on medium heat until tender.
Most of the moisture should be absorbed but if there is excess, you can pour some of it off. A little liquid is fine. You don’t need to drain it all.
Add butter, corn, and red pepper if using. (Use the red pepper sparingly.)
Cook on low-medium heat for 5 – 10 minutes or until corn is heated throughout.
If you find that you need to add more liquid, you can add a little water, broth, milk, or cream.
Serve & Enjoy!Print This Post
