Ingredients

Cooking spray
2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears)
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 large eggs
18 small tear-drop cherry tomatoes (pear-shaped), halved
2 tablespoons thinly sliced basil

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add corn, and cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Set aside 1 cup corn kernels.

Place remaining corn in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until coarsely chopped. Add milk and next 5 ingredients (through eggs) to food processor; pulse 4 times or until combined.

Pour about 1/2 cup corn mixture into each of 6 (6-ounce) ramekins coated with cooking spray. Place ramekins in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until the center barely moves when ramekins are touched. Remove ramekins from pan; cool 5 minutes on a wire rack. Invert flans onto each of 6 plates. Garnish each serving with about 2 1/2 tablespoons corn kernels, 6 tomato halves, and 1 teaspoon basil.
