It's hard not to think about a BBQ when looking out to summer!
Enough hearty vegetarian dishes can make celebrating a little more enjoyable for those who may not prefer steak or a hamburger. This dish fills the grills with a seasonal favorite - smoky, sweet and festive. And try this homemade mayo OR if you're pressed for time, try a store-bought version - we love Vegenaise.
Grill it up: Corn with spicy vegan mayo, cilantro and lime.
For Homemade Spicy Mayo (also great for fries!!)
1 cup cashews (soaked for at least 2-4 hours)
1 ½ tsp sambal oelek (chili paste)
Juice of 1 lime & zest of ½ lime + more lime wedges to serve
With the blender still running, add water, starting with ¼ cup. Then add one tablespoon at a time until you’ve achieved the desired consistency.
Grill the corn :
Peel the corn. Place the ears on a medium-hot grill. Roast them turning occasionally, until toasted, about 12-15 minutes. (If you don't have a BBQ, you can grill the corn in the oven using the "broil" setting. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn).
To serve :
Place corn on a plate and drizzle with a generous portion of the spicy mayo. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
