Healthy Weeknight Meals: Corn Pudding, Soy Curls and Kale


It’s not so much of a pudding as a casserole. :-)

I’ve been going through various cookbooks (with relatively quick/healthy recipes) and looking for recipes that I haven’t used before. This meal was built around one of them, Corn Pudding, from The Happy Herbivore Cookbook (p. 173).

As all of the Happy Herbivore recipes, this came together quickly- the only time consuming parts were chopping the onion and the actual cooking. I made a mistake with this- I forgot to add salt. I kept thinking that the recipe was a little on the bland side- until I realized my mistake. I think that would have absolutely made the dish, and I’ll probably add a bit to the leftovers as I serve them.

I had a bit of Soy Curls on the side with BBQ sauce, as well as tamari-steamed kale.

Did you know that Soy Curls are actually a whole food?

One might think they’re like TVP- just a part of the soy bean. But no, they’re actually the whole thing! So they do count as part of a whole foods meal. :-)

Tamari-steamed kale is incredibly easy- wash and tear up as much kale as you want, put it in a microwave-safe dish that can be covered (an inverted plate over a bowl is fine), and sprinkle with a little tamari. Zap in the microwave for about a minute or so, and you’re done!

Also, I love it when you follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

  1. Looks tasty. I didn’t know that about soy curls, (not that I’ve ever had soy curls but I do hear about them a lot) I always presumed they were like VP.
