My neighbor shared with me some fresh vegetables she had gotten from the Farmers Market and this spinach & corn was in the bag. Although I had never cooked spinach & corn together before, I knew they both were good for you, so I decided to give it a try.

It turned out both my husband & I enjoyed this quick & easy side dish immensely. I know I will be making it this way again real soon. Give it a try and see if you don't like it too.

How to Make Cream Style Corn with Baby Spinach

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash corn and remove silk, then Using a sharp knife, remove corn from cob into a medium size bowl. Scrape milk from cob with the back of knife & into bowl. Then add in the arrow root starch, salt, pepper, & sugar & stir to blend together.

  3. Add the heavy whipping cream to bowl of corn and stir till blended together.

  6. Serve while mixture is still hot. Enjoy
