This vegetarian creamed corn recipe is easy-to-make, and can even be made vegan. Perfect as a Thanksgiving or holiday side dish.



1 tbsp. vegan or regular butter

2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

3 cups full fat coconut milk

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp fresh black pepper

5 cups of corn kernels, fresh or frozen

garnish with fresh thyme


To a medium-sized pot, add the butter and melt on low heat.  Once melted, add the garlic and flour, stir till a ball or more lumpy consistency appears.  Add your nutritional yeast and stir more.  Now, slowly add your milk and whisk aggressively while cooking on medium-high heat (the whole process should take around 5 minutes).  Stir till you’ve added all your milk and a more silky smooth sauce comes together.  To the pot, add the cheese, salt, pepper and corn!  Simmer for 5-10 minutes (or until the corn kernels are hot) before serving with a bit of fresh thyme.
