So I have a few beloved recipes from my prior, non-keto life that have corn in them and I’d like to ketofy them, like my chicken tortilla soup, and some salsa dips and my Mexican spoon bread, etc.
The corn in these recipes is unique because it creates that firm little burst of sweetness among all the other spiciness and/or textures. It’s rather enjoyable.
So far the only thing I can come up with is dicing a yellow or orange sweet bell pepper into kernel sized dices and adding them the last couple minutes so that they remain undercooked, can’t alter the flavor of the dish with excess cooking, and still provide a snappy sweet burst of flavor. Maybe.
But I’m not as versed in all the different kinds of strange veggies and fruits to know if something else is sweeter and could get closer to matching that unique flavor and texture of sweet corn.
Any better ideas than what I’ve come up with?
