Grilled Corn with Queso Fresco, Lime & Chili
You can find grilled corn on the street in many different countries, but we particularly love the Mexican version with queso fresco, lime and chili.
2 ears of corn, shucked
1 tablespoon vegenaise or mayonnaise
½ a lime
a knob of queso fresco
pinch of sea salt
pinch red chili flakes
1. Pre-heat a grill (or grill pan) over medium high heat.
2. Place corn on grill and grill for about a minute on each side, until nicely charred all around.
3. Add a dollop of vegenaise and crumble the queso fresco over the top. Then, add a healthy squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of sea salt and red chili flakes. Eat immediately.
