My basil plants give their life for this...
Corn Dip with Tomatoes and Basil
(from Martha's Everyday Living via The Today Show)
Serves 4; makes about 1 3/4 cups
1 3/4 cups fresh corn kernels (from 2 ears) or frozen kernels
1/3 cup 2 percent milk
1/3 cup silken tofu
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered, or 2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
3 cups baked white-corn chips (6 ounces)
1. Cook corn and milk in a skillet over medium-high heat until corn is tender, 7 to 9 minutes. Let cool completely.
2. Puree 2/3 cup corn mixture, the tofu, lime juice, and salt in a food processor; season with pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl, and stir in remaining corn mixture, the tomatoes, and basil. Serve with chips. Dip can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 day.
