Moroccan Elote

Elote (translation: corn cob) is a common street food in Mexico. It is usually made with mayo, chili powder, lime and cotija cheese. But since cojita cheese isn’t always available in a store near some, feta is often recommended as a substitution.

Which led us to think: if using feta, how about using Masi Masa Ras El Hanout instead of chili powder? And since many are mayo-averse (an old boyfriend of Cindy’s used to call mayo “white death” and apparently a lot of people agree with him), how about butter? 

Moroccan Elote!

Shopping List & Prep (serves 4)

  • 6 ears corn, shucked and cleaned
  • 1 stick butter —or—1/2 C mayonnaise
  • Masi Masa Moroccan Ras El Hanout*
  • 1/3 C crumbled feta cheese
  • Freshly chopped parsley (optional)
  • Lemon or lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Shuck and clean corn (NOTE: If you prefer your corn more steamed than charred, pull the husks back up and grill with them on.)
  2. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high.
  3. Grill corn, turning often, until slightly charred all over, about 10 minutes. (If grilling in husks, grill for 25 – 30 minutes, turning every five minutes.)
  4. Remove corn from grill and rub corn with butter (or brush with mayonnaise), sprinkle with Masi Masa Ras El Hanout, crumbled feta, and parsley.
  5. Serve warm with lemon or lime wedges.

*You won’t need the whole pack, so we suggest saving it to make some more corn or roasted cauliflower.

This month, we came up with a recipe for a warming vegan tagine. Because we don’t have a tagine, a charcoal fire, or the time (!), we made our tagine in our Staub cocette which has self-basting drip function on the lid.

This recipe is adapted from Yotam Ottolenghi’s FANTASTIC cookbook, Simple. The secret to this recipe is boiling the cauliflower before roasting. The green tahini sauce creates a bright contrast to the roasted goodness of the cauliflower.
