The Breakfast Challenge – Creamed Corn on Sourdough Toast


I’m picking sweet corn in my garden at the moment, and even if you aren’t growing it, you should be able to find it in season at your local Farmers’ Market. This is my favourite breakfast at the  moment.  Sweet corn is low GI, which means that it keeps your blood sugar at a nice stable level for hours which makes you feel energetic and clear headed, and the cottage cheese is a good source of protein and calcium. Even better on homemade sourdough toast.

The Recipe:

(Makes 6 laden slices)

Put toast on to cook.

Strip the kernels from two cobs of corn.  Put them in a pot with just a little boiling water, put the lid on, and boil for just a couple of minutes.

Drain the pot and tip the hot kernels into the food processor with two good dessertspoons of low fat cottage cheese and blend. You can keep it going until it is smooth, or leave it with a bit of texture – your choice.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Dollop it onto the toast and eat.

    yummo! I never realised creamed corn was so easy. We were missing any cottage cheese but did have some home made ricotta to hand…. successful breakfast this morning 🙂

    I think the only cereal worth bothering with is oats. I know they aren’t local but they have everything else going for them (low GI, low fat, high soluble fibre) and they are the cheapest cereal you can find. Forget processed (quick) oats, you want real rolled oats. In summer, mix them with soymilk, dried fruit (add nuts and coconut if you want) and leave them to soak overnight then add fresh fruit, seeds (eg pumpkin sunflower and linseed) and yoghurt before you eat them. I even take an extra serve to eat with my lunch at work because it tastes so good.
    In winter, cook oats with soy milk, dates and another dried fruit, but don’t add too much fruit – one date and one dried apricot per serving is enough.
