Vegan Mexican Street Corn

Posted by in 4th of July, Cinco De Mayo, Cooking, Sides, Super Bowl Sunday | 0 comments













Hello & Happy Friday!!







There are a handful of things I still crave as a plant based advocate, fish tacos, and Spanish style corn with cojita cheese!! Please note I don’t even like corn, but THIS combination of sweet and spicy with a squeeze of lime..



Sheer. Perfection. 




In the midst of experiencing another craving, the thought occurred to me that I should develop a vegantastic version that’s sans dairy and cheese, but offers identical flavors!!




What I love most about this recipe is that it requires minimal accessible/affordable ingredients (unlike cojita cheese which is hard to find) and labor, has less calories than the classic version, and the presentation is SO gorgeous!











Although many would say this is more of a summer bbq time appetizer, I promise if done right, it’s good.. All. Year. Round. 















Why this recipe rocks:






Great for entertaining

Sweet & Spicy


Great for a vegan bbq

Great for Cinco de Mayo

Perf off the cobb and thrown in a salad!
