Creme de milho verde (Creamed Corn)

Creamed Corn is a very popular side dish to accompany poultry meat or fish. It is a nutritious recipe, light, tasty and very easy to make. Fried chicken in breadcrumbs, creamed corn, white rice, fried banana in breadcrumbs and potato straws are a great match known as "Supremo à Canadense" (Canadian Supreme). 

Ingredients

  • • canned sweet corn (about 300 g)
  • • 2 tablespoons butter
  • • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • • ½ litre milk
  • • 1 teaspoon salt
  • • ground black pepper
  • • ground nutmeg

Preparation method

1. Heat the butter, add the onions and let them cook.  
2. Add the flour, mix well and stir fry for 1 minute. 
3. Add the hot milk a little at a time, stirring constantly. It is the same procedure as for bechamel sauce. 
4. Add the drained corn and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. 
5. Bring to a boil and it's ready. 

Note: this recipe is already very good, but you may substitute half the milk with heavy cream and add 2 egg yolks, 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese or 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, at the end of cooking.
