Sweetcorn Recipes

Squash And Coconut Soup
Squashes keep well throughout the winter and, although the recipe suggests butternut, any orange-fleshed squash will do. The coconut is deliciously sweet with the squash.
Hearty Butternut Squash and Red Onion Soup

Aoki Sweetcorn & Chilli Butternut Squash
I discovered this delicious recipe when I was living with a Japanese family in Argentina! It seems to be a mix of both cultures. It works well with squashes or pumpkin and is delicious served with the red cabbage salad. You can use pumpkin instead of squash, if you prefer.
Pumpkin Or Butternut Squash Soup
This is a great autumn lunchtime soup. We end up making it on Saturday lunchtimes, usually when it's raining! It really is as simple as chop the veggies, cook them in the butter, add the stock and then leave it.
Baked Autumn Omelette
This baked omelette can be customised using so many different veggies, herbs and spices, and makes a fab lunch on its own, and a hearty dinner served as a side.
Tuna, Sweetcorn and Celery Salad Mix
This recipe is brilliant for that moment when you (or the kids!) are starving and need something NOW The texture and combination of flavours are hugely satisfying for munching at lunchtime.

And if its closer to dinner time, how about serving it stirred into freshly cooked pasta!

Spicy Cabbage Soup
You can use any type of cabbage for this recipe, so its a great way of using up leftovers. Spices are a good way of boosting your metabolic rate, which can get sluggish in winter, so this soup should leave you feeling full of energy.
Classic Chick Pea Hummus
Hummus (or humous) is a traditional Middle Eastern dip. It's a delicious way of using chick peas. It takes 5 minutes to make, so it's quick and nutritious.
Vegetarian Burritos with Fresh Cucumber and Tomato Salsa
These are perfect for a more substantial lunch, sliced into bite sized pieces for party nibbles, served cold the next day in your lunch box, or at your next Mexican night with friends.
Spicy Kale with Chickpeas
This recipe has come in from Jason H, who says:

"If you don't like the texture of chick peas then you could use mixed beans instead, in which case cook them for longer."

Thanks for the submission, Jason - it's a perfect recipe for the Winter months.
Chilli Non Carne
Not everyone wants to use minced beef or Quorn for a chilli, so here's a meat-free version that's proved a hit with even dedicated carnivores.
