corn sandwich

an easy corn sandwich recipe for breakfast or snacks. since i often make sandwiches at home and never ever share their recipes, i have decided to share the various sandwiches that i make.

sandwiches are also a good party food snack and can be made in large quantities. easy to prepare and assemble. to make any sandwich use brown bread or wholewheat bread or multi grain bread as they are healthier. these sandwiches are made with multi grain bread.

the filling for this corn sandwich is italian inspired with tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil. sauting the garlic and steamed corn kernels in extra virgin olive oil. then stirring in the tomatoes and basil. so the stuffing has to be made first. you can also make the stuffing overnight and keep in the fridge.

corn sandwich stuffing

i have used fresh sweet corn. i had cooked the corn cobs first and then added them to the stuffing. tinned corn would also work well.

to give a cheesy flavor and taste, i have used nutritional yeast. nutritional yeast is often used by vegans since it give a cheesy flavor to the dish. nutritional yeast is different from baker’s yeast. its an inactive form of yeast which does not grow like baking yeast. so there is no leavening in the food.

they are sold in the form of flakes or powder. the one which i had were flakes as you can see in the pic below. as the name suggests, nutritional yeast is full of nutrition. i purchased the nutritional yeast online from here.

more on nutritional yeast on wiki. a detailed post on nutritional yeast on the fatfreevegan blog.

you can also add cream cheese or cheddar cheese. in the recipe details i have mentioned when to add cheese.  however you can skip nutritional yeast and cheese completely, if you prefer.

these corn sandwiches are a bit spicy. reduce the amount of black pepper and red chili flakes to make these less hot and spicy. the recipe serves 2-3 people, but you can easily double the recipe.

Hi Dassana,

New to your blog. Love it! Was looking for quick lunches that my Kindergartner can eat by herself without messing up too much. Came across this one, which mentions nutritional yeast. Not sure what that is?

Hi Dassna,

You recipie as always looks very good. I will try it for breakfast tomorrow. Also would you know where to get flaxseed powder or vital wheat gluten online may be ? There are so many healthy recipes over the web for breads / cakes which ask for these.

Thanks for your help

hi shilpa. i have not seen flaxseed powder online. flaxseed is available. what i do is that i lightly roast the flaxseed and then grind them. flaxseed is available in most of the organic stores online like 24 letter mantra or down to earth. just search “buy organic india online” on google and you will get to see many online stores. i have not seen wheat gluten online. let me know which city you live. perhaps i can help you.

Hi Dassana,
This looks like a good recipe to try. However can you suggest any substitute to fresh basil leaves? Thank you.

hi ashwini, if you can get dry basil leaves… or even dry oregano or mix dry herbs would be good. i will also update the post.
