Sweet Corn Puree With Baked Cauliflower & Spinach

Sweet Corn Puree With Baked Cauliflower & Spinach

Sweet corn is rich in fibre and a delicious means of adding valuable carbohydrate to a meal teamed with protein and healthy fats. In this recipe I’ve made wholesome sweet corn into a heavenly miso-flavoured puree to match with baked cauliflower and sautéed spinach. Add your choice of protein to the meal and it’s wonderfully complete. My go to would be fish or butter beans.

  • Add corn to pan and cook a further 6 mins.
  • Blitz the corn mix in a blender until smooth. If needed add a few drops of milk of choice to loosen.
  • Once cauliflower is cooked remove from oven.
  • Sauté the spinach in a pan with a drop of water and set aside, then warm the puree in the pan ready to serve.
  • Spread the puree around two bowls, top with baked cauliflower, sautéed spinach, and sprinkle with nori, furikake or gomasio and serve.
