  • 1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Salt

Mexican Elotes

  • Preheat outdoor grill to medium-high.  De-husk the corn while the grill heats up.
  • Grill corn for 3-4 minutes per side, or until kernels are slightly charred.
  • Remove from heat, and let stand for 2 minutes until easy to handle.  Cut each ear into three pieces, and spear with wooden bamboo skewer.
  • Mix the vegan parmesan with the Tablespoon chile powder, and mix well on a plate.  If you're making the vegan parm, omit the salt, onion and garlic powder.
  • Roll corn in the butter, then the spicy vegan parmesan.  Arrange on a platter, and using a squirt bottle, squirt with the vegan crema.  Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve!
