Ideas for Your Leftover Sweet Corn!
You don’t need much to enjoy sweet corn; straight off the cob with butter and pepper (or lime juice and chili powder) never fails for me. But if you’d like to get a bit more creative or try something new, check out some of the sweet corn recipe ideas below:
Lime and corn are a natural pairing of sweetness and acidity, and the cherry tomatoes, radish, cilantro, and cotija cheese give this recipe the color, crunch, and flavor needed to complete the picture.
Farro’s one of those “ancient” grains you’ve probably heard so much about. It has a nutty flavor and is hearty enough to carry a starring role in this recipe alongside roasted corn, tomatoes, and kalamata olives.
Corn gets picked on for its lack of nutritional diversity compared to many of the options in the vegetable world, but the cauliflower and spinach paired with it here add plenty of nutritional punch. The goat cheese and BBQ sauce add the rest of the flavor needed to make this a great plant-based family meal idea.
Grilling season isn’t over yet! Foil packets make this a simple recipe to prep and cook, and it even works great over a campfire. Shrimp is a great option for high-quality protein, and is underrated as an option on the grill.
If you really want to go gourmet, start here. The heat, the acidity, the sweetness, the spice, the crunch, the color, it’s all here. And with lean steak, tomatillos, fresh sweet corn, onion, and serrano pepper, it’s pretty healthy, too.
