2 ears fresh corn, husks removed and kernels cut off the cob (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour (gram flour)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a kick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk (almond, soy, etc.)

  • Instructions:

    1. Prepare the Corn: In a large bowl, combine the corn kernels, all-purpose flour, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, and chopped cilantro.

    2. Seasoning Magic: Add the olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper (if using), and salt. Mix well to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.

    3. Binding Time: Gradually add the plant-based milk, a little at a time, until the mixture forms a thick and sticky batter. It should be similar to pancake batter consistency. You may not need all the milk.

    4. Shaping the Ribs: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil your hands and form the corn mixture into thin, long strips, resembling ribs. Aim for 1/2 inch thickness and 3-4 inches in length.

    5. Grill Time: Carefully place the corn ribs onto the preheated grill. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside, but cooked through on the inside.

    6. Serving Up Deliciousness: Remove the corn ribs from the grill and serve immediately. Enjoy them plain, with your favorite dipping sauce (like vegan chutney or tahini), or nestled in a bed of lettuce wraps for a more substantial meal.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    1. Can I use frozen corn kernels? Yes, you can use frozen corn kernels in this recipe. Thaw them completely and drain any excess moisture before using.

    2. What substitutions can I make for the chickpea flour? If you don’t have chickpea flour, you can substitute an equal amount of all-purpose flour or oat flour. However, the chickpea flour provides a slightly different texture and adds a touch of nuttiness, so the flavor may vary slightly.

    3. How can I make these corn ribs gluten-free? Simply use gluten-free versions of the all-purpose flour and chickpea flour. Ensure your chosen plant-based milk is also gluten-free.

    4. Can I bake these corn ribs instead of grilling? Yes, you can definitely bake these corn ribs! Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Flip them halfway through baking for even cooking.

    5. What dipping sauces would pair well with these corn ribs? There are many delicious dipping sauce options! Here are a few ideas: vegan chutney, tahini sauce, sriracha mayo, or a simple combination of olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh herbs.
