Street Fair Corn – NYC Vegan Cookbook

I am VERY excited to be sharing a new vegan cookbook with y’all! Last year, I had the pleasure of doing the food photography for NYC Vegan, by the Vegan Mos AKA Michael Suchman and Ethan Ciment. And now, as of May 9th, it is out in the world!! I shot around 45 recipes from the book, so I feel like I can judge it pretty well. 😉 Today, I’ll share more about this fun cookbook and one of my favorite recipes from it, Street Fair Corn!

Upon first glance at the cover, you’ll immediately be drawn to the saucy, sloppy, Tempeh Reuben. I have to admit, I had to shoot this thing a couple of times to get the look just right, but it was worth it! The Reuben is accompanied by the quintessential Brooklyn Egg Cream, a sparkling chocolate drink. You’ll find NY-style bagels, Manhattan Glam Chowder, Classic NYC Pizza, and New York Cheesecake. They’re not messing around when it comes to the classics!

Street Fair Corn

Yield: 4

Summer in New York City means weekend street fairs. The fairs have no rides or games. Instead, avenues are closed to traffic for several blocks, where dozens of vendors sell food. One of the most popular foods is Mexican Street Corn—freshly grilled sweet corn coated in a mixture of cheese and spiced mayonnaise. We created a vegan version of this dish that tastes even better than the original. (From NYC Vegan, copyright © 2017 by Michael Suchman and Ethan Ciment. Used by permission. Photo by Jackie Sobon.)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup nondairy mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup nondairy sour cream
  • 1/4 cup nondairy parmesan, , plus more for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, , plus more for serving
  • 1 medium clove garlic, , finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro or Italian parsley
  • 4 ears sweet corn, , shucked
  • 1 lime, , cut into wedges

Instructions

  1. Heat a grill for direct-heat grilling, or heat a grill pan over high heat on the stove. While the grill is heating, in a medium mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, nondairy parmesan, chili powder, garlic, and cilantro. Stir until completely combined.
  2. Place the corn directly on the hot grill and cook, rotating occasionally, until cooked through and charred in spots on all sides, about 8 minutes total.
  3. Remove the corn from the grill and transfer to a serving plate. Use a pastry or basting brush to generously coat each ear of corn with the mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with extra cheese and chili powder and serve immediately with lime wedges.
