Crunchy, juicy and sweet. This baked dish shows how autumnal sweetcorn can be the star of the show, in this quick to prep recipe. The jalapeño salsa would be a nice addition here too.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 tsp hot smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 300g sour cream
  • 25g coriander, roughly chopped
  • To serve: 60g vegetarian feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 baby gem lettuce, leaves picked
  • 50g watercress
  • 200g baby leeks, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 600g sweetcorn, either from a tin or frozen
  • 100g vegetarian Parmesan-style cheese
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • a few sprigs of flesh oregano, leaves picked
  • small bunch of radishes, sliced
  • lime wedges


Stage 1

Preheat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Heat the olive oil and fry the leeks and garlic for about 4–5 minutes until softened. Add the cumin seeds, paprika, oregano and chipotle paste and fry for another couple of minutes. Stir in the sweetcorn, sour cream, Parmesan-style cheese and coriander, and season generously.

Stage 2

Transfer to a large baking dish or four smaller ones and top with the chopped chilli. Bake for 10–15 minutes if you are using smaller dishes, or about 20–25 minutes if you are using a large one.

Stage 3

Remove from the oven and garnish with the feta cheese and fresh oregano. To serve, scoop the sweetcorn bake into the lettuce leaves, top with radish and watercress, and finish with a squeeze of lime.
