If you’ve never tried Cuban corn, than you’ll have no idea why this combination is so fab! Back in 2007 I had my first experience with street corn at one of my now favorite spots in NYC. It’s flavorful, affordable, coated in cojita cheese and spices, and just an all around game changer. Since 07′ I’ve probably dined there at least 100 times. (truth)
While I gravitate away from cheese today, you can easily recreate this staple dish, take it off the cobb to make enjoying it mess free and even switch up the ingredients to further enhance the flavor.
What’s fab about this dish is, everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packed with veggies, flavor, has texture, has heat, a little sweet, a lil smoky, is perf for any season, you can switch up the sauce base and use dairy free yogurt or sour cream, or omit altogether, it’s great for entertaining, amazing as a side dish or garnish on sandwiches or tacos, and is just an all around crowd pleaser!!
So just how good is this dish?! Let’s just say I’m not even a fan of corn for various reasons, but I could eat this by the buckets as it’s just SO GOOD!!
If you’re searching for an iconic dish that nobody will know is vegan, you’re going to love my staple vegan Grilled Corn Salad!!
