This is the most easy corn on the cob recmipe I ever tried which happen to be a vegan corn on the cob recipe as well.
You can add more vegan corn on the cob toppings (like chopped fresh cilantro leaves or mint leaves more black pepper, red chili flakes, garlic etc) to this delicious boiled corn or you can enjoy it as it is.
I used fresh corn to make this recipe, but sometimes I also use frozen corns (mini corns as well) so you can try fresh or frozen corns, regular sized or mini corns (see recipe notes) to make this perfect vegan corn the cob for a delicious brunch, lunch or dinner.
These are also great for holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas or anytime of the year.
If you don’t want to keep this recipe vegan, you can easily replace the oil with butter and make this corn on the cob easily on stove top.
I like boiled corn on the cob as it is easy and simple to make and you get soft and delicious corn which is easy to bite into. Whenever I make boiled corn on the cob with butter and milk, by boiling the corn ears immersed in a mixture of water, milk and butter, I love the results.
However I do not really wish to discard the leftover mixture or broth after cooking the corn.
After all its a delicious mixture of butter and milk in which corn is cooked and so it will have lots of flavor too, so I almost always use the leftover mixture to cook either pasta or rice, or I use it as a broth as I need it.
However if I have no plans for the leftover mixture from boiling corns over the stove top, I hesitate to use butter and milk, as I feel that will be a lot of butter and milk to discard it that way.
So I went for this easy way of making corn on the cob using a little different boiling method, where I used a mixture of water, little oil (I used a mixture of Non GMO canola oil and olive oil, but you can use any oil you like), salt, sugar and pepper to cook the corns.
And it turned out so soft and delicious, everyone in my family loved it including my kids!
So I didn’t have to use so much of butter and milk which had to be discarded unnecessarily, and this method of boiling corns is super easy to do as well.
As I mentioned above, if you wish you can still use butter in this recipe instead of oil.
