Smokey Sweet Corn Pasta

Smokey Sweet Corn Pasta

I’m a huge fan of corn, and grilled summer corn is one of my favorite foods of all time. You can find me shucking, grilling and eating corn most summer weekends, which means I often have leftover corn come Monday.

This is one of the recipes I like to make to use leftover corn in a new way. With smoked paprika to balance the natural sweetness of the corn, and silken tofu for added creaminess and plant protein, this is a really delicious way to make a meal out of leftovers.

If you don’t have access to fresh grilled corn, thawed frozen sweet corns works! For a naturally gluten free meal, substitute gluten free pasta.

This new recipe is inspired by the sweet summer corn we’ve been grilling every weekend. It’s smokey, creamy and perfect for eating outside.
