 Rwanda: Grilled maize with green tomatoes












Maize is commonly considered as food for sharing in the Rwandan Culture and is among the easiest food one can prepare.

This time you can try to prepare it a bit different from the usual way of grilling with nothing applied to it.

Adding garden fresh tomatoes and feta cheese create a delicious topper in this grilled maize recipe.

6 maize

  • White and/ or yellow maize
  • 3 table spoons
  • Butter, softened
  • 1cup chopped, yellow or red tomatoes
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese

 Rwanda: Grilled maize with green tomatoes


To prepare, peel back husks; remove maize silk. Strip about half the husks from each cob. Fold husks back around tops of cobs.

Tie husk tops with a piece of maize husk or 100 percent cotton kitchen string. In a large kettle or Dutch oven cook maize, covered, in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain.

Grill on rack of uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 10 minutes or until tender, turning several times. (For a gas grill, preheat grill to medium. Prepare as above.)


To serve, brush cobs with butter. Top with tomatoes, basil and feta cheese.
