Simon Gault “This is a Kiwi dip with a twist. Make this creamy corn and tomato cob loaf for your guests to enjoy as they have a pre BBQ drink.”

CREAMY CORN AND TOMATO COB LOAF

 

Serving Size: 10-12

Time: 60 minutes

Difficulty: easy

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cob loaf
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 150g cooked spinach, roughly chopped
  • 250g sour cream
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 1 packet French onion soup mix
  • 1 cup sweetcorn kernels
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella

Line a tray with baking paper and preheat oven to 190°C.Cut a circle from the top of the loaf, carefully remove lid and set aside. Scoop out bread and set aside.

In a food processor add spinach, sour cream, cream cheese and soup mix. Process until combined then transfer mixture to a bowl. Fold in sweetcorn, mozzarella and most of the tomato halves. (Make to this point if preparing in advance.)Spoon filling into hollowed-out cob loaf and top with remaining tomato halves, skin-side down. Place loaf on prepared tray, cover with foil then bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, tear loaf lid and scooped-out bread into manageable-size pieces. After 40 minutes’ cooking, remove foil then add bread pieces to tray around outside of loaf. Return to oven and cook, without tinfoil, for a further 10–15 minutes, until bread pieces turn golden brown. Serve and enjoy!

Simon Says:

  • If using fresh spinach, remove leaves from stems before cooking (if using baby spinach leaves, this isn’t necessary). Blanch spinach in a large pot of boiling salted water for 30–40 seconds then drain. Add cold water and let sit until spinach is cool to touch. Drain again and squeeze out water.
  • You’ll need approximately 350g fresh spinach to make 150g cooked.
  • If using frozen spinach, thaw first then squeeze out excess water.
