vegan mexican street cornIf you do not have a BBQ, not to worry! You can roast corn in the oven. It’s actually one of my favourite ways to eat corn!

How to roast corn in the oven: Preheat oven to 400F. Place corn directly onto the rack of your oven and roast for 20 mins.

If using a BBQ: Cook the corn on the grill until it is cooked through and has light charring, about 20-30 mins. Keep warm.

To make vegan Mexican Street Corn Simply; Cook the corn according to your preference, stove or grill. Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl whisk together the cashew sour cream, vegan mayo, minced garlic, cilantro, and salt until smooth. When the corn is ready and cooled enough to handle, but still warm; spread the cream mixture all over each piece of cooked corn and garnish with vegan cheese of choice (I like to use my Vegan Feta Recipe), a sprinkling of chili powder, cilantro, and lime wedges.

  • Our daughter told us it was her favourite summer recipe, so we had to try it. My husband and I both loved it! We used your sour cream recipe but had trouble finding the Violife feta, and substituted Violife mozzarella. I read the comments, and next time I will try the Violife Parmesan if I cannot find the feta. It is a fantastic recipe that works even with the odd substitution! Thank you!

    Thank you so much for the best Vegan Mexican Corn recipe. I dreamed about it too many years since my last visit in Mexico. Now Mexico is at my house!

    This is so yummy! Thanks for sharing this. I did this without chili powder, but used lots of smoky paprika and Tajin.

    1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
    1/2 teaspoon Chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon Cumin
    2 teaspoons coconut sugar
    1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt

    Such a match made in heaven 😍

    • Super yum. My bf told me this was better than anything he’s eaten at a restaurant. Used your sour cream recipe but topped with violife Parmesan.
