- 4 ears of fresh corn

For the Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons vegan butter
- 1/4 cup hot sauce (adjust to your preferred spice level)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
- Vegan cream
- Vegan cheese (shredded)
- Fresh cilantro leaves (chopped)
- Prepare the Corn Ribs:
- Start with fresh corn on the cob.
- Remove the husks and silk from each ear of corn.
- Use a sharp knife to trim off the pointed edge of each ear.
- Cut the corn in half so you have two shorter pieces.
- Transfer the corn halves to a large pot.
- Boil the Corn:
- Cover the corn halves with water in the pot.
- Bring the water to a boil and cook the corn until it’s tender, about 8-10 minutes.
- Drain the boiled corn and let it cool slightly.
- Go back to the Corn Ribs:
- Once the corn has cooled down a bit, cut each half in half again lengthwise. You should have four corn rib sections per ear of corn.
- Place the corn rib sections on a baking tray.
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Brush the corn rib sections with vegetable oil, ensuring they are evenly coated.
- Place the baking tray with the corn ribs in the preheated oven.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until the corn ribs become slightly crispy and golden brown.
- Prepare the Sauce:
- In a small saucepan, melt the vegan butter over low heat.
- Add the hot sauce, garlic powder, and vegan Worcestershire sauce to the melted butter.
- Stir the sauce mixture until everything is well combined and heated through. Remove from heat.
- Coat the Corn Ribs with Sauce:
- Transfer the baked corn ribs to a lidded container.
- Pour the prepared sauce over the corn ribs.
- Seal the container with a lid and shake it gently to ensure the corn ribs are well coated with the sauce.
- Serve and Enjoy:
- Plate the corn ribs on a serving platter.
- If desired, top them with vegan cream, shredded vegan cheese, and chopped cilantro for added flavor and presentation.
- Serve your delicious vegan corn ribs as an appetizer or side dish, and enjoy!
These vegan corn ribs make for a delightful and flavorful snack or side that’s perfect for sharing with friends and family. Adjust the spice level of the sauce to your preference, and feel free to get creative with your favorite vegan toppings!
