Frozen corn

Sarah Feb 22, 2013 08:31 PM

Found a bunch (4 pkgs) of frozen corn in freezer -- what is a good soup or dish (non-dairy please) to use them or some of them up?

    Corn Pudding: Put a bag of frozen corn in the food processor and pulse it on and off not to puree the corn but just to break up the kernels. In a big bowl beat 2 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup Bisquick (or 1/4 cup flour plus 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt), 2 tablespoons oil, the corn, and an 8-oz bag of shredded cheddar cheese. Bake for 45-60 minutes at 350*. This makes a vegetarian main dish, a side dish for carnivores, or a carnivore main dish if you toss in some bits of ham, cooked bacon, or sausage. Very versatile.

      Corn salad: red onion, corn, orange bell pepper, cilantro with a dressing of red wine vinegar and oil.

        Oven roast it with whatever spices you enjoy and snack on it, or use it on salads, in soups, stirfry, add in to salsa, etc?

        Corn and black bean chili/chowder?

          Exquites, like Mexican street corn, but without the mess. Of course it's better with fresh corn, but I frequently use frozen corn and still find it delectable.

              Rosita made some (deep-fried) Indonesian corn fritters using frozen corn, chopped-up shrimp, and plenty of pepper that were really very good. Perhaps she will read this and provide the recipe. If she doesn't and you want it, I'll get it.

                Corn chowder? Corn cakes? Thai corn fritters? Maybe a sort of Southwestern salad with corn, black beans, avocado and farmer's cheese?

                  an echo to ninrn and Joebob - chowder with shellfish and/or pork and red bell pepper. fritters/cakes with a touch of jalapeno are a good idea.

                  oops (edit) re-read the OP wishing for non-dairy, which I interpret as vegan - corn in salsa/salad is indeed good and with care and research olive oil is often easily subbed for dairy and corn shows up quite often in US-anized (no, not euthanized) versions of Tom Yum.

                    Thanks, I thought of that, but the recipes seem to call for canned cream-style corn...

                      It's better with regular corn. Cleaner and sweeter taste.

                        If you have a recipe... it'll be much appreciated.

                          Sorry. I don't use recipes.

                          Just Get some stock (either chicken or vegetable), bring the stock to a gentle boil, add the corn, salt and white pepper to taste, turn off heat and slowly drizzle in beaten eggs, stir gently and then serve garnished with scallions and a drizzle of sesame oil.

                          yeah creamed corn in egg-drop? I can't figure that one out.

                            Ditto. I could see as an experiment, but there are actually recipes on the internet?
