The end of summer is near, my friends! This is one of my favorite times to grill out; the weather is mild and you aren't sweating your socks off when you enjoy dinner al fresco. Ah yes, it's a wonderful time of year!
A few years ago, I discovered the magic of street corn. Honestly, it's hard to enjoy corn on the cob any other way now! I've actually only had *vegan* street corn in my life. The 'real' street corn involves a cheesy, oily sauce that is, let's say, not exactly a health food. My vegan version has all the flavor and messy-face fun -- but it's cashew-based and adds a rich nutrient profile! WIN.
Enjoy this change in seasons! What are your favorite foods to bridge this time of year?
