2 cups frozen sweet corn, thawed
1/2 cup whole wheat (or gluten-free) flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Heat a flat griddle pan or flat plates on a panini pan to medium heat.
