making one pot cheesy spinach corn
Heat the olive oil in a pan. Now add the scallions and garlic to it.
Saute for 2 mins and then add the chopped spinach. Saute the spinach for 4 minutes.
Add the black pepper and salt now
After 2 mins add the red chili flakes and the oregano seasoning/italian seasoning/mixed herbs
The spinach would have softened and considerably cooked after 3-4 mins. Now add the boiled corn kernels.
Mix the corn with spinach and spices. Saute for 2-3 minutes more. Check the salt and seasonings and add more if required. Serve hot with warm or toasted bread.
You can use tinned/canned corn instead of fresh corn. I have used american sweet corn but even regular corn would taste good.
You could also use cream and cheese together in this recipe. Even just adding cream would taste great.
If you want a baked version, then this is what you have to do. Add about 5 tbsp cream towards the end of the recipe just before removing it from fire. Take the mix in a bowl. Top grated cheese on top and bake it in the oven for a couple of minutes till the cheese melts and browns. Your baked cheese spinach corn is ready.
If there are any leftovers they could be used as a stuffing for pancakes and also can be used as a stuffing for grilled or toasted corn sandwich.
