Corn is one of those vegetables that go well with a variety of main dish recipes. Try an easy corn casserole, tasty fried corn, or creamed corn like Grandma used to make.
valerie says: Corn is a simple-tasting ingredient with a slightly sweet flavor. But don't let the sweetness fool you, this vegetable also goes great with spicy flavors. Add a little smoky chipotle, or maybe some cayenne. Or for an easy way to add a kick, some minced jalapeno.
Corn has a bright yellow color (unless you are using white corn, of course) which can be used to visually complement dishes. When serving unadulterated corn (in other words, just plain) I like to pair it with contrasting colored foods. If you serve it with white fish and mashed potatoes you get a pretty bland looking plate of food. But if you have some simple steamed broccoli and some pink-colored salmon, you have a very visually pleasing meal in front of you.
