Corn Gazpacho

Place 1 cup cooked corn in a large bowl. Add 1 seeded, chopped tomato, 3
cups tomato juice, 1 unpeeled, diced, medium cucumber (or 2 lemon
cucumbers). ½ cup finely diced onion, ½ seeded, minced jalapeno, 1 minced
garlic clove, 2 tbsp minced fresh basil leaves, 3 tbsp fresh lime juice, ½ tsp salt,
and ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper. Stir. Refrigerate for 1 hour before

Mix first 4 ingredients together in a blender; blend until smooth. Gradually add
ice and continue to blend. Serve immediately. Makes 5 cups.

Corn Pancakes

1 ½ cups fresh corn kernels
3 large egg whites
1/3 cup soft tofu
¼ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tbsp chopped parsley
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
Set aside ½ cup corn kernels. In a food processor or blender, blend remaining
cup corn with 1 egg white, tofu, flour, parsley, baking powder, salt, & pepper
until smooth, stopping once to scrape down the sides of the container.
Transfer mixture to a bowl & stir in reserved whole corn. In another bowl, beat
the remaining 2 egg whites to soft, moist peaks that droop slightly when the
beater is lifted. Scoop the egg whites onto the corn batter & fold them gently
with a rubber spatula.
Preheat oven to low. Spray a nonstick skillet lightly with nonstick spray & place
over moderate heat. When the skillet is hot enough to make the batter sizzle,
make pancakes, using ¼ cup batter per cake. Cook until browned on the
bottom, 2 to 3 minutes, then turn & cook until cakes are golden brown on the
other side, about 2 more minutes. Transfer to a platter and keep warm in the
oven. Continue until all batter is used.
