One of our late Summer treats is to go pick our own corn. My kids love running through the fields, harvesting as many cobs as they can. Invariably, we, of course, end up with way too many so I am always on the lookout for new recipes.
I guess us French people are not generally very inventive with corn. We’ll boil it on the cob or add it to salads. That’s about it. It was only when I lived in the US that I realised how much more there was to it and I started enjoying chowders, creative salads, breads and of course some memorable Thanksgiving’s cornbread stuffing.
I much prefer cooking with fresh corn even though you can often use frozen or canned as substitute. Fresh simply has more taste and crunch, and to my mind is worth the extra effort. I am always look out for organic in order to avoid GM crops which have unfortunately become the norm.
Amongst our family’s favourite meals is the Tortilla Lasagna [vegetarian] by Vegetarian Times below. I really recommend you try it (just make sure to use corn tortillas as the dish will hold better). My vegan Indian Summer Mexican Stew is loaded with seasonal vegetables and is also very popular. Of course as the weather is getting colder, soups are back on the menu and the selection below never fails to disappoint.
