What are corn ribs
I know you are a bit puzzled, how can corn replace ribs. Well, it's thanks to its appearance and the way you'd hold the little corn strips, that makes you eat it in a similar way to the original. I mean, of course, the taste is that of delicious spiced corn and not meat, but it's still pretty cool and fun.
Corn ribs are essentially strips of corn on the cob, oven-baked full of spices to have an aromatic taste. Super quick, easy and delicious.
If you're wondering why to make corn ribs, is simply because I think it's nice to have a delightful snack that reminds us of summer. I love these types of grill. As you know, I wasn't born vegan, so I sometimes have my own cravings. A bit of corn rib and I'm good.
How to make corn ribs
As I mentioned this is the easiest ever recipe. All you need is corn on the cob, ground paprika (spicy or smokey), ground coriander, some olive oil, oregano, garlic powder and salt and peppercorn to taste.
The hardest part is cutting the corn into strips. The cob is hard so you'll need a hard and steady surface and a very sharp knife. Cut the corn into strips but be very careful. I like to cut it vertically but you can find your own way of cutting it into strips that works for you.
I'm not going to lie, I sometimes just ask my husband to cut it for me as he can apply a bit more force.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. If you have an air frier you can use that as well. I'm more traditional, I prefer my oven.
Drizzle the corn strips with a bit of olive oil and add the herbs and spices. Use your hands to mix everything well and make sure the corn strips are fully covered. Place them in a tray lined with baking paper and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes until the corn is fully done.
That's all there is to it. Serve it hot with vegan parmesan and fresh herbs and enjoy it as a snack, part of a big BBQ or as a side dish. Either way, you're going to love this recipe. Enjoy!
