Recipe type: Vegetables
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion (1/2 Cup chopped)
  • 1 bag frozen white corn kernels (16 ounces); see * Note
  • 3/4 Cup skim milk; divided
  • 4 Cups frozen yellow corn kernels (20 ounce; see * Note
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt; optional
  • ground black pepper; optional
Instructions
  1. * Note: We like to buy frozen corn in bags for this recipe because it thaws faster and contains no sauce. To double this recipe, process the white corn in 2 batches and proceed with the recipe.
  2. Melt butter over low heat in a 3-quart or larger saucepan. Meanwhile, peel and finely chop onion. Add to pan; cook until soft, about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. While onion cooks, pour white corn kernels into a colander; rinse under lukewarm tap water for 1 minute. Drain well. Pour white corn and 1/2 cup milk into a food processor work bowl; process with steel blade until pureed, about 15 seconds. Set aside.
  4. Pour yellow corn kernels into colander; rinse under lukewarm tap water for 1 minute. Drain well. Transfer to a saucepan. Add white corn mixture and remaining 1/4 Cup milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low; continue to cook, stirring from time to time. Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook until heated through or until ready to serve.
  5. Yields 8 servings.
