Ingredients
For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup(s) raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 1/4 cup(s) nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup(s) lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1 handful(s) fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon(s) dijon mustard
  • 1 clove(s) garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper
For the corn:
  • 8 cob(s) corn husked
  • 1 handful(s) fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 teaspoon(s) chili powder
Instructions
  • To make the sauce: Add everything to a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. If you don't have a high-speed blender, soak cashews overnight or boil for 10 minutes until soft. Drain before using, and use ¼ Cup + 1 Tablespoon Water (instead of the full ½ cup of water).
  • To grill the corn: place the corn on a hot grill and cook a couple minutes per side, rotating as needed. You want some char marks, and the corn will go from a pale yellow to a richer, darker, yellow. About 10 minutes.
  • OR to boil the corn: Fill a pot that is large enough to hold all of your corn cobs with water, leaving room for the corn, and bring to a boil. When the water has reach a rolling boil, carefully put the corn cobs into the water, and boil for about 7 minutes until the corn has gone from a pale yellow, to darker yellow. Remove from water.
  • To serve the corn: drizzle the sauce over the corn. Messy drizzles look pretty. Garnish with the cilantro, and sprinkle some chili powder across the top. Serve right away with napkins!
Notes
Make ahead: You can make the dressing ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
