Delicious and Healthy Baby Corn Satay

I often use baby corn in my cooking. Since it's mildly sweet and crunchy, this type of corn works well in many different recipes.

Another reason I enjoy cooking with baby corn is because of its health benefits. Baby corn is low in calories and high in fiber. It's a good source of protein and vital antioxidants. Since the corn ears are fibrous, they stimulate digestion.

Making baby corn satay is quick and easy. It took me about 15 minutes of active time and 15 minutes of passive time. This starter is almost oil-free, and as such, it will suit those who may be watching their weight.
