  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (sub-gluten-free all-purpose flour if preferred)
  • 1 3/4 cups full-fat coconut milk (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional for cheesy taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  1. In a medium skillet or pot melt the vegan butter over medium heat. When melted add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, then whisk in the flour to make a paste and cook for another 30 seconds, whisking continually. Add the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper and whisk to combine. Stir in the corn kernels and continue to cook for 2 - 4 minutes, until you reach desired consistency. If you prefer a thicker creamed corn cook a little longer, and if you prefer a thinner creamed corn then remove from the heat earlier. You can also add an extra splash of coconut milk or water to thin if needed. Serve hot.

Recipe Notes

I prefer using full-fat coconut milk for an extra rich vegan creamed corn. If you prefer to use a different kind of non-dairy milk, try to use one that is higher in fat to keep the dish rich and creamy. 

If you wish to make it ahead of time, store the prepared dish covered in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or in a pot over low heat, stirring in a splash of water or non-dairy milk if needed to loosen it.
