Are you in need of a delicious, crowd-pleasing side dish for your next holiday feast? Look no further than this mouthwatering 5-minute vegan creamed corn! With just 8 simple ingredients, you can whip up a creamy and savory dish that will pair perfectly with your Thanksgiving or Christmas spread.
Imagine sweet bursts of corn kernels enveloped in a rich and luscious sauce that will have you licking up every last drop. The secret to achieving this velvety texture is using full-fat coconut milk. While the coconut flavor is subtle and blends seamlessly with the corn, feel free to experiment with other plant-based milk alternatives. However, I must confess, coconut milk will always be my personal favorite for this recipe.
Not only is this creamed corn incredibly quick to make, but you can also prepare it ahead of time. Simply reheat it over low heat and add a splash of water or plant-based milk to loosen it if needed.
Now, let’s talk about serving options. This creamy delight is an excellent accompaniment to classic holiday dishes such as puff pastry-wrapped lentil loaf, vegan stovetop stuffing, cheesy vegan scalloped potatoes, Italian seitan sausages, seitan steaks, almond rosemary lemon crusted tofu, crispy breaded tofu steaks, or stuffed roasted butternut squash. And guess what? It’s versatile enough to elevate your everyday meals as well. I recently added some leftovers to my Buddha bowl-style dinner, and it was absolutely amazing!
Here’s how you can make this delectable vegan creamed corn:
- In a medium skillet or pot, melt vegan butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
- Whisk in the flour to create a smooth paste and cook for another 30 seconds, continuously whisking.
- Add the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper, and whisk until well combined.
- Stir in the corn kernels and continue cooking for 2-4 minutes until you achieve your desired consistency. If you prefer a thicker creamed corn, cook it a bit longer. For a thinner consistency, remove it from the heat earlier. You can also add a splash of coconut milk or water to adjust the thickness if necessary.
- Serve hot and get ready for your dish to be devoured!
Now that you have this tantalizing vegan creamed corn recipe, you’ll undoubtedly become the star of your next holiday gathering. So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try and prepare to impress your guests with this irresistible side dish!
