Grilled Herbed Corn on the Cob

The best corn on the cob I’ve eaten was at a random street stand when I was young. Though it’s been a long time, I remember they used herbs and cooked it on a grill in its husk. At the ripe age of 7 (or however old I was), I didn’t think to demand their recipe. Not to fret, I’ve devised one of my own.

Total Time: 30 minutes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Yields: 4 servings



  • 4 ears corn on the cob
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Pull corn husks down, but don’t fully remove. Remove silk and rinse.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Spread butter mixture over corn. Pull corn husks back over corn. Using your hands, wet husks with water. Wrap in aluminum foil.
  3. Cook corn over a grill at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes.


  • Vegetarian and vegan
  • No grill? No problem. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, or until done.
  • Love loads of butter and flavor? Double the butter and herbs to use as a spread at the table. Don’t feel too guilty about it, a lot of the butter melts off during grilling.
