What's the Secret Recipe For Perfect Mexican Style Street Corn?
Marinating the corn on the cob with lime juice, garlic, hot sauce, and cilantro is key to creating that perfect melody of flavors. And it's simple and quick, all you need to prep corn is a baking dish or large reusable ziplock bag and the following ingredients...
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- A few dashes of hot sauce
- 3 minced garlic cloves, and shake it all about.
Even though marinating the corn overnight is recommended, you can get away with a half-hour or so. While the corn marinates, prepare the vegan street corn toppings.

How To Make Kathy's Spicy Cashew Cream
Just add the following ingredients together and blend in a high speed blender until creamy.
- 1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight); if you do not soak them, you'll just have to blend longer and likely add more water.
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tsp cumin
How To Grill Vegan Mexican Style Street Corn
Preheat the grill to 500° F about 10 minutes prior to starting the corn.
It is safe to remove the husk before marinating the corn, which prevents them from drying out, and also allows to make those beautiful charred grill marks and enhanced flavors.
Cover the grill while cooking, opening to check and turn the corn occasionally, until all sides of the corn are grilled, about 15 minutes.
