This corn pudding recipe elevates the typical dinner side dish to something a little more special. It takes less than 15 minutes to whip together and really is not the least bit complicated to make. I would definitely say it’s a weeknight winner, but there’s no reason you couldn’t also serve it to guests too.
If you are making it for the kids, serving it (or anything else, really) in individual ramekins practically guarantees no complaints at the dinner table. I don’t know what it is about single portion servings, but kids seem to love just about anything served in a cute little dish. Adults too! (wink)
And while clean eating and the conventional corn pudding recipe may not typically go hand in hand, this one is dairy free (no butter, no cream and no cheese), has no sugar and no refined flour. Like many Clean Cuisine recipes, the creaminess comes from cashew cream.
