Vegetarian sweet corn recipes please?

hezwez, Jan 23, 7:06am
Pak 'N Save practically giving them away yesterday & they're so fresh, bought around 10 & I'm the only one who likes them. Tough bikkies for rest of family, they're seasonal & cheap end of story. Has anyone suggestions apart from fritters/salad/buttery cobs please that might appeal? Thanks

You could blanch them and freeze them if you have the room in your freezer

I used to make a delicious recipe years ago calle d Summer Stew by Deborah Madison. When I stopped eating dairy I replaced the cream in it with coconut cream. It has red pepper, tomato, corn, courgette, basil is what I remember and it is served on penne or other small pasta. It is absolutely yummy. Must have it again soon.

Ummm - sweet corn is vegetarian. Cook it, add butter and salt and there you go.

If no-one else eats it then cook it, take the kernels off and freeze it in small portions to add to soups, stews, make fritters or a big corn frittata (uses eggs of course)

Or you could check out "Bite" - our own homegrown recipe site:

I just remove the kernals, package and pop into the freezer, no blanching. They kept well too, no freezer burn.

Ottolenghi sweetcorn polenta recipe is really good. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2008/sep/20/vegetarianfood.recipes.

Freezer burn occurs when the plastic packaging is too thin or has been damaged (often bones sticking out etc).

Sweetcorn Polenta with eggplant sauce ~ Ottolenghi
THE INGREDIENTS
Eggplant Sauce
2/3 cups olive oil
1 medium globe eggplant, cut into 3/4-inch dice
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup chopped peeled tomatoes (fresh or canned)
6 1/2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon chopped oregano

Polenta
2 ears sweet corn kernels
4 cups cooked polenta (cook as directed on label using butter)
Butter, as needed for cooking polenta
Salt, to taste
THE DIRECTIONS
Heat up the oil in a large saucepan and fry the eggplant on medium heat for about 15 minutes, or until nicely brown. Drain the oil.
Add the tomato paste to the pan and stir with the eggplant. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the wine and cook for 1 minute.
Add the chopped tomatoes, water, salt, sugar and oregano and cook for 5 minutes to get a deep-flavored sauce. Set aside; warm it up when needed.
For the polenta, the original recipe doesn't call for cornmeal polenta but we used it. Cook the polenta as directed with butter and salt to taste. Fold in the corn after 10 minutes of initial simmering.
Top off the polenta and eggplant with sauteed mushrooms, if desired.
