This clean eating corn casserole is a delicious, dairy free alternative for this home-style family classic!
If you love corn casserole, give this dish a try. It’s darker in color then the regular version due to the coconut sugar. It gives it a beautiful caramelized color that’s delicious too. This isn’t overly sweet, but you can taste and adjust before baking.
It’s a great side dish at any holiday table, or even just for a weeknight meal.
To save time in the kitchen with this dish, make your creamed corn ahead of time. It will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. Once you have that made, this dish comes together in about 10 minutes, with a one hour baking time. Not too bad!
Please don’t make this mistake I did. Cover your casserole lightly with foil during baking so it doesn’t dry out so much. But aside from that, this was so delicious! I served it with beans, asparagus and some roasted sweet potatoes. It was a delicious, plant-based meal!
ABOUT THIS DISH:
Many of you may be used to the corn casserole that’s almost more like cornbread because it’s made with a box of muffin mix. But that’s not what this is. It’s definitely a baked dish with a bready-type aspect to it though. It’s very filling and satisfying without the airy, bready texture. This dish is really more about the corn and mild sweetness than it is about breading.
