These dishes can be made ahead of time. To reheat, bake puddings on a baking sheet at 350 F for 10 minutes or until thoroughly warmed.

Servings: 4

Ready time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Corn pudding

1 large cob of corn (to make 1 cup kernels)

2 tbsp melted butter

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

11/2 cups grated old cheddar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup sour cream

1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped about 4 tsp or to taste

Salt and pepper

Miso mushrooms

4 large portobello mushrooms, stemmed

2 tbsp light miso

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp olive oil

Tomato salsa

1/4 cup chopped red onion

2 cups tomatoes, coarsely chopped

1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic

2 tsp seeded and finely chopped jalapeno or serrano chilies

2 tsp lime juice or to taste

Salt and pepper to taste


2 cups mixed greens

2 tsp olive oil

lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Scrape corn from cob into a bowl keeping any of the “milk” that is extracted. Butter 4 individual 1-cup ramekins.

Stir all ingredients together. Spoon into ramekins and bake for 20 minutes or until edges are bubbling and pudding is golden. Remove to a cooling rack and let sit for 5 minutes. Turn out onto serving plates or leave in ramekins if desired.

Combine miso, balsamic and olive oil, and brush on to both sides of portobellos. Let marinate for 10 minutes.

Preheat grill to high. Brush grill with oil and place mushrooms gill-side down on grill. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip and grill for 1 more minute or until cooked. Alternatively, bake for 20 minutes in 450 F oven.

Stir all ingredients for tomato salsa together gently.

To assemble, slice mushrooms on a 45-degree angle and lay over puddings. Toss greens with 2 tsp olive oil and spritz with lemon juice. Stack 1/2 cup greens over each pudding. Scatter tomato salsa around the stack.
