Vegan Korean Corn Cheese Ramen
Korean Corn cheese is a south Korean dish made of canned sweet corn and shredded mozzarella cheese. It’s a simple side dish most commonly served and eaten with Korean BBQ, or with alcohol at a bar. It’s often made right at the table with a grill insert, or brought to the table bubbling in a hot dish.
Traditionally, the corn kernels are sautéed with butter on a skillet, with onions, bell peppers, or other diced veggies that have been lightly salted and squeezed to remove moisture, and mayonnaise and sugar. Then it is topped with mozzarella cheese and broiled in an oven until the cheese melts, and browns.
