Vegan "Ghetto" Corn
Submitted by anon. on Fri, 2009-02-20 03:00
I know this may sound weird to some people, but in the summer here (in the ghetto, sorry I don't know a better way to refer to this corn) it is sold out of large tubs in grocery carts in the streets. Basically the original version is cooked corn on a cob slathered with mayonnaise (or butter, depending on the vendor), covered with parmesan cheese, and sprinkled with cayenne pepper. So last night, trying to think of something to eat with my black bean enchilada casserole I came up with this vegan version of the original. It turned out so well leftovers are in my bento today. 1 cup frozen corn good hot sauce to taste 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast 1/2 tablespoon of vegan mayonnaise (optional, I did not pack mayo for my lunch because it is still pretty good without it) I just heat the corn through with the hot sauce and add the nutritional yeast at the end. After it is off the heat (preferably just before you are going to eat) mix the mayonnaise in. If you are okay with egg and cheese and you are not on a diet I would suggest trying the original, especially during the summer with fresh corn. But there is a warning, this is extremely addictive and I have know people to put on a fair amount of weight from this (I had a boss that put on 20 lb. in one summer, but in all fairness she ate a ton of it).
