Grilled Backyard Lime Chipotle Corn on the Cob with Tofu Mayonnaise
Grilled corn is such a treat in season. Summer at its best. It is a healthy food and fun to eat. This can be a side dish for other summer barbeque dishes.
Flavour: That slightly charred corn taste with the tart lime, hot chipotle pepper off set by the sweetness of the mayonnaise.
Benefits: Low calorie and high in good carbs. Gluten free and all the taste of dipping corn in mayonnaise with none of the guilt.
Yield: 4 cobs of corn
Total time: 30-45 minutes
Equipment: Grill or oven, bowls, cotton string, large pot
4 cobs of corn with the husks on and silk off
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
Zest from 3 organic limes
1 teaspoon ground chipotle powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon tamari
Pull back the husks but leave them on and tie them with cotton strings. Soak in water for 30 minutes.
Grill corn on each side on a medium high heat setting on the grill for 10-15 minutes each side. Watch closely that the husks don’t burn. Pour sauce onto grilled corn and give each person a bowl to dip the corn into Tofu Mayonnaise.
Place all ingredients into a food processor or a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and well incorporated.
