This recipe goes way back to childhood. I was never a huge fan of creamed spinach or corn until my aunt made a version of this Creamy Corn and Spinach Toast for lunch one day. I was blown away at how delicious it was once combined together and served on some toasted bread. Of course my mom being the foodie and amazing cook that she is, started making a similar version of it at home, but with her own twist and flavors. This easy and quick dish was one of my staples in college. Many of my friends have tried and loved it! I shared the original dairy version of the recipe in the past, but have since come up with a vegan version that I’m excited to be sharing with you today!
The base of this recipe makes use of a simple Bechamel sauce, combined with a few of my favorite spices and seasonings such as ginger and lemon, to give a flavorful, thick creamy white sauce. To make things even easier, I use frozen corn and spinach. My favorite frozen veggies are from Trader Joe’s, especially their organic frozen corn, which is nice and sweet.
As much as I prefer and love fresh produce, I always have a bag of frozen corn and spinach ready to go in the freezer, mainly to make this Creamy Corn and Spinach Toast when I’m all out of dinner ideas.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it’s very easy and quick to make, and perfect to serve for all occasions for the entire family. Simply prepare the creamy white sauce, defrost some corn and spinach, throw it in the mix, toast some bread, spread a layer of the hot creamy corn and spinach mixture, and serve with some freshly ground black pepper and your favorite hot sauce. You can use slices of sourdough bread, a french baguette, or your favorite gluten-free bread and serve it for brunch, lunch, or pair it up with my Velvety Zucchini Basil Soup for dinner.
So grab your favorite bags of frozen corn and spinach and make this vegan Creamy Corn & Spinach Toast!
