  • 6-8 ears fresh corn, husks left on or remove
  • 1/2 cup vegan sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground chipotle chili powder, more to taste (sub with regular chili powder if needed)
  • 2 tsp lime zest (1-2 limes)
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (1-2 limes)
  • 1/4 salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 cup dairy free butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup vegan parmesan Cheese


  • Grease clean grill grates (or use grill mats) and heat grill to 400 degrees F. 
  • While waiting, in a medium bowl, add sour cream, mayo, cilantro, garlic, chipotle chili powder, lime zest, lime juice and salt. Whisk together. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Place in fridge.
  • Brush each ear of corn with dairy free butter (and the husk if left on). Add corn directly onto grill grates. Grill the corn for about 2 - 3 minutes per side (turning after kernels are golden brown and charring). Repeat on all 4 sides. Remove from grill.
  • Brush or spoon on the mixture to the corn. Sprinkle with crumbled vegan parmesan cheese. Add more chipotle pepper, if desired. Serve immediately with extra lime wedges.
