Queen of Corn

 

A few years ago, I watched a really fantastic movie. It was one of those life changing movies, that really made me reflect on my own choices.

The movie was King Corn. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. When I was cooking supper tonight, I couldn’t stop thinking about that movie! Between my lunch at the movie theatre and my supper tonight, I am quickly becoming the Queen of Corn. But not in the High Fructose Corn Syrup way…

CORN! 019

I call these “Queen Corn Cakes” and they are SUPER easy to make, fast and delicious!

To make these, you’ll need:

  • 1  cup  chopped parsnip – boiled and softened
  • 1  (15 1/4-ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 1/3  cup  gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  skim milk
  • 1  tablespoon  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 green onions, chopped

Place corn in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until chopped. Add parsnip, flour, milk, sugar, salt, and eggs. Pulse 5 times or until combined. Stir in green onion.

Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat – around a 5. Spoon batter onto the skillet. I used the 1/4 cup. Cook for about 4 minutes or until crispy on each side.

Top with Greek yogurt and cilantro!

Emily- WAY more savory than sweet! I even spiked my Greek yogurt with a little bit of hot sauce for a punch.
