How are you doing in August? We are in Pamplona visiting my family, so we appreciate suggestions of vegan places or interesting shops to visit. ?
Right now it’s the Malaga fair and a very typical thing is roasted corn on the cob, although they have butter. You can use margarine if you want, but we prefer oil because it is more natural and since we did not have a grill at hand, we have grilled them, which are also very tasty.
- 4 mazorcas de maíz
- Aceite de oliva virgen extra al gusto (opcional)
Alioli verde vegano:
- 1 diente de ajo
- 1/4 taza de leche de soja (65 ml)
- 1/2 taza de aceite de girasol sin refinar (125 ml)
- 1 cucharadita de vinagre de manzana
- Sal marina al gusto
- 1/2 taza de espinacas crudas (15 g)
- There are two ways to prepare the cobs. You can cook them for about 30 minutes on the grill with a little oil to taste (optional) over medium-high heat or until they are golden brown and the corn is tender.
- Another option is to first cook the cobs for 30 minutes over medium-high heat and then another 10 minutes also over medium-high heat on the grill with a little oil to taste (optional) or until they are golden brown and the corn is tender. This way the corn is softer and we like it better, although it is less simple.
- We put a little oil on the carmela/griddle, but it is optional .
Vegan Green Aioli:
- So the mayonnaise doesn’t cut, Ideally, the ingredients should be at the same temperature.
- Put the garlic, milk, vinegar, salt and oil in the blender jar, place the mixer at the bottom of the mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until emulsified, then you can move from the bottom up until it is perfectly integrated.
- Add the chopped spinach and beat again until well combined.
- Taste the mayonnaise and if it’s bland, add more salt and beat again a little from the bottom up until that the salt is completely integrated. If the mayonnaise is very thick, add more milk and if it is very liquid, add more oil. Beat again.
- To make the aioli we use a hand mixer, although it can also be done in a glass if you add the oil little by little when the mixer is on.
* We buy the corn cobs ready to cook, so we save ourselves the work of cleaning and preparing them.
