Take your toast game up a notch! Inspired by one of our favourite snacks, Elote, our gluten-free Grilled Mexican Street Corn Toast is fully loaded with all the fixings. We slathered on a thick spread of mashed avocados here and sprinkled some sweet grilled corn there. Topped with plant-based feta cheese, avocado lime crema, and a dusting of Tajin, the flavours in this dish will transport you right to the streets of Mexico.

If you haven’t used Tajin spice before, you’re in for a zippy oomph.Tajin is a tangy Mexican powdered spice, that blends chili, salt, and dehydrated lime juice.This versatile spice brings a real zing to this Mexican toast recipe and is a useful ingredient to have stocked in the kitchen. Tajin adds a spicy zest to dishes when used as a rub, taco seasoning, or lightly sprinkled over fruit salad.

Cooked corn can last in the fridge for up to four days when stored in an airtight container. Grill a few extra cobs to make this healthy toast again during the week with some time-savings.

Instructions to Prepare Toppings:
  1. Brush corn with a buttery spread or olive oil and grill over medium heat until charred. Remove from heat. Let cool, then carefully cut the corn off the cob. Set aside.
  2. Mash avocado with a squeeze of lemon or lime. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. Make avocado lime crema by mashing more avocado, and adding non-dairy sour cream, lime zest, and lime juice. Mix to combine. Set aside.
Instructions for Serving:
  1. Toast bread of choice. We used Little Northern Bakehouse Seeds & Grains Bread for a seedy and extra-crunchy texture.
  2. Spread toast with a light layer of mayo.
  3. Top with mashed avocado, then add grilled corn on top. Crumble on vegan feta cheese, a sprinkle of Tajin (or similar lime and chili Mexican seasoning), and chopped cilantro.
  4. Dollop with avocado lime crema and serve with lime wedges.

Serves 2 – 4

  • We used regular vegan mayo, but you can spice up the dish by using a chipotle mayo—just mix mayo with minced chipotle peppers, garlic powder, and pepper.
