INGREDIENTS 

  • 4-5 husks of corn
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • cilantro and lime wedges to garnish
Avocado Crema
  • 2 avocados
  • 1⁄4 cup vegan mayo
  • 1⁄2 cup Organic Homestyle Cashew Nutmilk 
  • 2 habaneros
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • Touch of water to even it out

METHOD 

To start, get your grill or skillet ready! While that’s getting hot, make your avocado crema by blending avocado, vegan mayo, cashewmilk, habaneros, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, vinegar, and water, until a creamy cream sauce forms. Set aside.

Make your corn seasoning by mixing salt, pepper, paprika and chili flakes in a bowl. Lather on your corn with the seasoning and olive oil (save the other 1⁄2 of the seasoning for topping!). Grill your corn until cooked through and charred to your liking about 15-20 minutes.

Drizzle on your avocado crema, cilantro and lime juice. YUM!
