1. Squid and Sweetcorn Hummus with Avocado Salsa
Swap chickpeas for corn in our delicious twist on hummus that blends golden kernels with garlic, yoghurt and a little tahini. It’s the perfect creamy base for quick-fried squid and a bright avocado salsa.
2. Charred Corn and Black Bean Salad with Tortilla Chips
Chargrilling takes corn to a whole new level of smoky sweet flavour, especially when it’s brushed with a Latin American spice blend. Once that’s done, mix it with a limey black bean salad and scoop it all up with easy-to-make, healthy toasted tortilla chips.
3. Broccoli and Corn Chowder with Green Chilli
Chowder, a creamy soup originating from England and later brought to America by English immigrants, is traditionally thickened with cream, milk or a roux, but we've toned down the richness of the original recipe, re-creating that sumptuous velvety texture by blending potatoes with milk and cashews. Mild green chilli and fennel spice things up, while a dollop of yoghurt adds a cool touch.
4. Spicy Beef Soft Corn Tacos with Pickled Vegetables
Ditch the richness of Tex-Mex tacos for this healthier version featuring tangy yoghurt instead of sour cream; minced beef for lightning-speed cooking; and pickled radish for a lively kick. Laced with smoky chipotle and fresh red chilli, these tacos still pack plenty of punchy flavour for those who like to turn up the heat.
5. Beef Fajitas with Corn Salsa and Creamy Chipotle Sauce
The Tex-Mex classic is one of our DIY dinner favourites. Just warm the tortillas, chop the veg and give grass-fed beef a flash-fry in a pan. Traditionally, fajitas are served with sour cream and guacamole, but we’ve subbed in a creamy sauce spiked with warming chipotle, and a refreshing sweetcorn salsa for even more tempting family flavour.
6. Creamy Coconut and Corn Rice with Jerk Chicken
We love jerk chicken, but classic versions can be quite spicy. So we’ve kept all the flavour but turned down the heat and paired it with a creamy cooling rice cooked in coconut milk and laced with sweet corn so eaters of all ages can dig in!
7. Easy Freekeh, Corn and Cranberry Salad with Spinach and Goat's Curd
Salads can be both healthy and satisfying when packed full of grains and nuts. Here, nutty low GI freekeh and iron-packed spinach leaves are combined with charred corn, toasted walnuts and sweet dried cranberries for delicious summer flavour.
8. Mexican Corn and Sausage Salad with Yoghurt Dressing
It may not be authentic, but this combo of pork sausage, charred sweet corn, coriander and fragrant spices tastes just like a slice of Mexico. Drizzled with a creamy lemony yoghurt, this hearty salad laden with crisp flatbread has family favourite written all over it.
9. Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup with Miso Green Beans
Inspired by the tastes of Japan (did someone say miso, mirin and sesame oil?), this low-fat, healthful soup is creamy and crunchy at the same time. Japanese culinary wisdom claims that an array of textures (crisp beans, chewy corn, soft rice, delicate chicken, soothing soup) in the same dish makes you slow down as you eat, heightening flavours. Whether the theory works here or not, one thing's for sure: our combo is a winner.
10. Creamy Chicken and Sweetcorn Pie with Herb Crust
This sensational pot pie is a cinch to make. Your household will love this offering of succulent chicken, caramelised leek and sweetcorn, topped with a crunchy golden herb crust. No one will guess it was so simple and easy.
