Roasted Corn Pancakes with Harissa Aïoli

Jonathan Kurlander, of Minnetonka, Minn., loves coming up with healthful veg dishes his two young sons will eat: “They seem to be accepting of most things ‘pancake,’ so I expand on that theme,” he says. Harissa, a North African chile paste, adds just a hint of smoky heat.
