Vegan Sweet Corn Tomatillo Pudding Recipe

2 cups corn kernels
½ cup non-dairy milk
½ cup sugar
3 Tablespoons Regular Vegan Butter or margarine
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
2 Tablespoons brown rice syrup
2 teaspoons arrowroot powder or tapioca starch
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon lime juice

¾ cup corn flour
¾ cup cornmeal
½ teaspoon non-aluminum baking powder

1 cup corn kernels
½ cup diced tomatillo

1) Process the flavor building ingredients

Preheat your oven to 250F (121C). Lightly grease an 8 x 8 inch baking dish and set aside. If you are using frozen corn kernels, measure frozen before using, thaw under heat then drain excess water. In a food processor or blender, add 2 cups of the corn kernels, non-dairy milk, sugar, Vegan Butter, nutritional yeast flakes, brown rice syrup, arrowroot powder or tapioca starch, salt and lime juice. Process for about 2 minutes. Set aside.

2) Whisk together the dry ingredients

In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the corn flour, corn meal and baking powder. 

3) Mix the batter and add the corn kernels and tomatillos

Add the wet ingredients to the bowl containing the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated. Stir in the remaining 1 cup of corn kernels and ½ cup of chopped tomatillos. 

4) Transfer to the baking dish and cover

Pour the mixture into a baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Poke several holes in the aluminum foil to allow steam to escape. 

5) Prepare a water bath and bake the pudding to perfection

Place the baking dish inside a larger baking dish such as a 9 x 13 inch size and fill it with water until the water level is 1 inch up the outside of the 8 x 8 inch baking dish. This is to ensure that the mixture stays moist and heats evenly. Bake for 1 ½ hours. Scoop out portions of the pudding and serve hot.
