TASTY Vegan Mexican Street Corn Recipe (Elevated Elotes!)
This recipe is a favorite of mine to make for friends coming over or to bring for a potluck because it's inexpensive, easy, and absolutely delicious! I have to admit it also looks so beautiful and appetizing sitting on the table, especially if you leave on the peeled back husk to add even more aesthetic.
I've mentioned before how much I love Taco Tuesdays at my house and this is a go-to side I love make along with my favorite Vegan Sweet Potato Tacos.
I hope you love this recipe just as much as I do and as always - get creative, have fun, and ENJOY eating your plants!

Serves: 4 | Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 15 Mins | Ready: 20 Mins
Corn (4 ears - removed from the husk)
Grapeseed Oil ( 4 tbsp)
Garlic Powder (1 tbsp)
Smoked Paprika (1 tbsp)
Cayenne Pepper (1 tsp)
Chilli Powder (1tsp)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Prep Work: finely chop cilantro.
1. Preheat your oven to 450F. Prep a baking pan by covering it with tin foil.
2. In a bowl, mix together oil, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, chilli powder, salt and pepper until fully combined.
3. Coat each ear of corn fully in the spice/oil mixture and place into the baking pan, side by side. Place into the oven uncovered for 10 minutes.
4. Remove from the oven and turn the corn over several times in the pan, re-rolling each ear through the oil mixture. Place back into the over and bake for another 5 minutes.
5. Remove from the oven and allow to slightly cool. Coat the outside of each ear of corn in a light, even coating of mayo. Then squeeze and drizzle lime juice over each ear, sprinkle with cilantro, panko crumbs and additional spices as desired.
Serve and Enjoy!!!!
I'm completely obsessed with this brand right now - the Olive Oil is dynamite and perfect for this recipe. I believe that using really good ingredients is what elevates a dish, so these are definitely worth a try and are very affordable compared to what you grab from the store shelf - at a WAY higher quality.
Here is their website to shop for yourself.
