[Coffee with Friends] Corn and Spinach Toasties

Hey Everyone,
Today let me share another recipe by a good friend Smruthi Miraj.

About the Guest Blogger in her own Words

A passionate Bombayite by heart and a complete foodie by 'tummy' (pun intended), I enjoy cooking as much as eating! I started off as a creative writer for Hallmark cards and after having dabbled with copy for advertising and content writing, I am quite settled now with Technical writing!
We moved to Singapore five years back. The city state has given me a lot, most importantly, my two bachchas Shanaya and Samar.
When I am not stressing about document deadlines, you can find me engrossed in a Bollywood flick or stirring a ladel in my kitchen trying to come up with something interesting. Hoping to continue enjoying this wonderful state of mind for a long time to come!

I have known Smruthi for few months now, we met on a Playdate and I just love the way she is so easy going and bubbly despite managing a carrier and two kids. So here is a great recipe that she would like to share with all of us...

Corn and Spinach Toasties

1/2 bundle chopped spinach
3/4 tea-cup corn niblets
1 teaspoon butter
1 pod of garlic pressed
1 medium-sized onion finely chopped
1/2 tin cream cheese/ cooking cream
salt as per taste
freshly crushed pepper
4 bread slices 
2 cheese slices or 1/2 cup of grated cheese

1. Chop the spinach and keep aside.
If you are using corn from the 'bhutta' then boil and keep aside. if you are using tinned corn, then just warm the required quantity in the microwave and keep aside.
2. Press the garlic and chop the onion.
3. In a pan, melt butter. Add the garlic and saute a bit.
4. Next add the onion and saute till pink.
5. Add the chopped spinach... stir fry.
6. Add the corn and cook further.
7. After about 3-4 minutes of cooking the above, add the cream cheese/ cooking cream. Mix well.
8. Cook on simmer for 2-3 minutes. Keep stirring the mixture.
9. Add the salt and pepper. Mix well, turn off the gas and keep the mixture aside.
10. Cut the sides off the bread slices.
11. Place in oven toaster for two minutes.
12. Take out the bread slice and add the spinach-corn topping to each bread slice.
13. Sprinkle some grated cheese OR pieces of broken cheese slice over that.
Again, place in oven toaster and toast till cheese melts and browns slightly.
Eat warm:-).

Thanks Smruthi for sharing this yummy recipe.
