  • 2 ears of corn (about 2 ½ cups kernels)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ cup corn meal
  • ½ cup diced green beans
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 makrut lime leaves, minced
  • ¼ cup avocado oil


  1. Remove kernels from corn cobs (or use frozen) and place in food processor.
  2. Pulse until some kernels have been broken down but you still have a chunky texture.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk egg, tamari, flour, corn meal, and corn puree.
  4. Stir in green beans, red curry paste, and lime leaves until combined.
  5. Heat oil over medium-high heat.
  6. Working in batches, drop batter, 2 tablespoons at a time into hot oil.
  7. Gently pat batter as needed to flatten and allow to cook until golden brown – about 1-2 minutes per side.
