This recipe started when I came home with some reduced baby sweetcorn and spinach from the supermarket one day. Baby sweetcorn are one of my absolute favourite ingredients, so I knew I had to pick them up. Throw in some spinach and a few more veggies and this salad really is amazing – taste wise and for your body! You can actually eat all of these ingredients raw, leaving you with one less step (and pan to wash up), but I decided to cook them as I was having it for dinner and something hot always feels a bit more hearty to me.
Bag of fresh spinach
8 baby sweetcorn
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1/2 cup peas
1 small red onion, sliced
In a sauce pan on a medium heat, throw in your sweetcorn, carrot, peas and onion.You should find they all take the same amount of time to cook – about 5 minutes or until the sweetcorn’s starting to get some good colour.
Serve on top of a bed of spinach, you can heat it in the microwave if you prefer or leave it cold.
