For vegan blue cheese dressing

For buffalo corn on the cob

  • 3 Tablespoons vegan butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Frank's Red Hot Sauce or your preferred hot sauce
  • 4 ears corn on the cob husks and silk removed
  • Garnish: A handful of chopped chives optional


To make vegan blue cheese dressing

  • In a bowl, combine the crumbled tofu, vegan mayonnaise, non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, dried parsley, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, and pinch of salt. Taste for seasonings and adjust if necessary. Move dressing to refrigerator until ready to use.

To make buffalo corn on the cob

  • Put vegan butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 15 to 30 seconds until it has melted. (If you'd rather not use the microwave, melt the butter in a small pot on the stove instead.) Stir in hot sauce until it has completely combined with the vegan butter. Set aside.
  • Bring outdoor grill to a high heat - roughly 500 to 600 degrees. Grill the corn for about 10 minutes. Use tongs to move it occasionally, so that it can brown all over. However, don't move the corn too much, so that you can get good, dark grill marks.
  • Once the corn is done, remove from grill. One at a time, drizzle buffalo sauce on each ear of corn over a plate. Roll each ear through the sauce, until each one is evenly coated. Put the buffalo sauce-covered corn on a platter and add a dollop of vegan blue cheese dressing to each ear. Garnish with chopped chives (optional). Serve with additional vegan blue cheese dressing, so that people can add their own dressing to the corn as they eat. Eat right away.



*I use super firm tofu in vacuum packaging. If you're using water-packed tofu, you may want to press it first.
