Hello + Welcome!

Boiled corn with salt always takes me back to my childhood and the scorching days of summer. It’s a simple delicacy that radiates warmth and joy, reminding me of the sweet times with my mum.

Back in Russia, my mum would bring fresh corn from the village or the local market during the warm months. The sweet aroma of the corn is now forever associated with happiness and comfort.

When I lived in Thailand, boiled corn was one of the most popular snacks sold at the beach. I remember lounging on the sand after a long day under the sun, watching the sunset and munching on juicy corn. It’s the kind of food that takes outdoor experiences to the next level.

I recently had corn ribs at a vegan restaurant, and I couldn’t stop thinking about them! It was at the plant-based fine dining restaurant “Bustan” in Koh Phangan, Thailand. If you happen to be there, I highly recommend trying their vegan-tasting menu!

I experimented with several recipes to find one that matched the restaurant version, and finally, I found it! The best part is that making corn ribs is almost as easy as boiling the corn. So, if you want a lazy snack idea, give corn ribs a shot!

Anthony Bourdain once said, “Good food is, very often, simple food,” this recipe is the perfect example!

Corn is high in fibre and protein, making it an ideal snack or side dish. I like to pair corn ribs with vegan mayo, which can be store-bought or homemade. You can find my favourite high-protein vegan mayo recipe here.

If you’re looking for a new and exciting way to enjoy corn, give corn ribs a try! These delicious treats are perfect as a snack or side dish and will tantalise your taste buds while providing your body with essential nutrients. So the next time you’re craving a snack, whip up some corn ribs and reminisce about those warm summer days.

Follow the instructions for the best corn dish of your life!
