Fresh corn and polenta replacements

mullingink | May 11, 2012 12:58 PM

Much to my dismay, I recently discovered that my toddler has a corn allergy. I've seen good suggestions on replacing corn products in baked goods and as a thickener, but I'd love suggestions on what to use to replace fresh corn in sautes and stir-fries where its caramelization provides flavor for sauces, and what to use when I'd normally choose to put meat or vegetables on a bed of polenta. Any good ideas?
