Corn on the cob is a delicious and easy to prepare vegan side dish, which can be prepared and cooked in about 5 minutes per ear of corn in a microwave oven.

Sweet corn comes in several varieties ranging from white to yellow with mixtures of both.  We have found that there is some difference in texture and taste between varieties, but more importantly, the flavor seems to be affected by the place in which it was grown.  We have not found any reliable way of determining which is the best at the time of purchase.

Remove the husk and stalk while the corn is "dry".  We have found that the easiest way to remove the silk is to hold the corn under running water, using a soft vegetable brush to remove the silk that remains on the corn; it is best to brush from the tip to the stalk end of the corn cob.

Corn can be cooked in boiling water for about 5 minutes, which is the fastest way if you are cooking 12 or more ears, or in a microwave oven for about 2 minutes per ear of corn.  For microwave cooking (which we prefer) place the freshly cleaned corn in a covered glass baking dish with no added water.  Place in the microwave oven on "high" for about 2 minutes per ear of corn.

Serve and Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
