Today I have a delicious vegan recipe everyone will enjoy; Coconut Creamed Corn.
I was inspired to make this from a recipe I saw on Healthyish, part of Bon Apetite. In their version they use quinoa or farrow as a grain, I use rice. Among other tweaks I made to the recipe I feel comfortable enough sharing my version of their recipe.
The great thing about it is it’s vegan so everyone can enjoy the dish! It would be a great thing to make and bring to your family meals and cookouts. And is the perfect dish to use the bounteous fresh corn at the markets right now.
When I told my husband I was making coconut creamed corn he was not looking forward to it. But upon tasting it he was hooked and messaging his family in Ecuador about it. My 4 year old also loved it! So I think these testimonies speak for themselves as to the delicious nature of the recipe.
So will you be giving it a try? Let us know in the comments below!

My good friend, Ruth, who I've known since our sons were in the first grade together, is now a snowbird. She lives near Lake Superior on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and she and her husband escape the terrible snowy weather there in the winter by coming back to AZ for a few months every year. When she does, we have a standing breakfast/lunch date at Mimi's Cafe. Last Friday, we met there at 12:30 and left around 5:00. I'm sure that the wait staff loved us! Ha Ha!
A nice thing about Mimi's is that they serve delicious food with a French flair and you can get breakfast all day long if you like. This time I ordered their 3 Egg Smoked Salmon Omelette. It seemed like it could stand up as lunch fare, even though it was in the breakfast section of the menu, and it did not disappoint. Since Salmon is one of my most favorite foods ever, it was a no brainer that I would order that omelette when I saw it on the menu!
The next day, I couldn't get that salmon omelette off my mind, so I decided to see If I could make my own version of it for dinner that night for my husband and I. My version also did not disappoint! The only thing I had to go to the store to pick up was the smoked salmon. I used this brand...
...but there are many varieties out there. I liked that it is deli sliced because I was able to lay a nice layer of salmon evenly into the omelette. Also, the secret ingredient in this recipe is Parmesan Cheese that adds that little salty boost to the eggs. I know that many people are against using cheese with fish, but I find that Parmesan and salmon go together very well! Give it a try!
Now, here are a few omelette making tips:
This recipe is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The smokey salmon flavor was so delicious yet subtle combined with the other ingredients! At Mimi's, they served it with a muffin! I had blueberry! It was big and Ruth and I split it. It was the perfect accompaniment. These would also be great! Bon Appetit!

*If you are unfamiliar with spaghetti squash, you will probably be even less familiar with orangetti squash. I got my hands on some a couple of years ago and my family really enjoyed it. I posted this orangetti squash with chicken recipe then and it has become one of our most searched for posts! Since I was able to get a spaghetti squash the other day, it reminded me of this recipe which the spaghetti squash would totally work with. So here is a re-post of how to cook orangetti squash!
A few posts ago, I told you about Market on the Move and how I was able to get a ton of squash, as well as other vegetables for $10. In this post, I gave you a recipe for a Carrot/Squash Loaf using the yellow squash I got a ton of. Another type of squash that I was able to get, I was less familiar with. It is called Orangetti Squash.
At our house, we have some people who are less keen on beef and would prefer chicken. We have Maddy who is trying to eat a little more vegan. Then, we have my husband and I who just like to eat! In order to accommodate every one, I decided to make a deconstructed Chicken Cacciatore, using the orangetti squash as a replacement for the pasta! Madalynn left out the chicken and simply ate the orangetti with the sauce. Either way, the result was delicious. Here is how I cooked orangetti squash:
I placed the halves of the orangetti squash on a foil lined pan. I drizzled a little olive oil on the squash and sprinkled it with salt and pepper. Then, I put it in a 350 degree F. oven and baked it until tender. (About 45 min. I think, just stab it with a fork to test it.) While it was baking, I started my chicken.
Now you are ready to serve! This is a great one dish meal!
Orangetti Squash vs. Spaghetti Squash
I think I enjoyed the taste of orangetti squash a little more than spaghetti squash. It has a sweet mild flavor that blended so well with the sauce. As I mentioned before, the orangetti squash is also slightly smaller than spaghetti sauce. I ate more for lunch the next day. (When I put it away, I went ahead and mixed it all together!)
If you find Orangetti Squash in the grocery store, don't be afraid to give it a try!
