Ingredients

    2 corn cobs (or 250g canned kernels)
    3/4 cup buttermilk
    1 egg & 1 egg white, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup low-fat ricotta
    1 cup self-raising flour
    2 Tbl chopped chives
    Olive oil spray
    12 vine-ripened cherry tomatoes
    1 Tbl pesto
    1/4 cup small basil leaves

Directions

Preheat the grill to high.

Usin a sharp knrife, cut down deach side of the corn cobs to remove the kernels (or drain canned corn).

Beat together buttermilk, eggs, ricotta, flour, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir in the corn and chives.

Heat a large non-stick frypan over medium heat and spray with olive oil. Using 1/3 cup of batter for each corn cake, spoon the batter into the pan in batches of two or three. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side until browned and cooked through. Keep warm while you repeat with the remaining batter to make 8 corn cakes in total.

Meanwhile, place the tomatoes on a baking tray. Season well with sea salt and pepper, then grill for 6-8 minutes until softened and just starting to split.

Arrange the corn cakes on plates, top with the tomatoes, drizzle with pesto, then scatter with the basil leaves and serve.
