1 big pinch smoked paprika + plus more for topping
lime zest from 1 lime
1 teaspoon chopped cilantro, optional
Sauce for Corn Ribs
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
To prepare corn ribs chop corn in half horizontally. Stand pieces up vertically and carefully cut directly though the center of the cob. Then chop the halves into quarters.
Whisk melted plant butter and smoked paprika in a mixing bowl. Toss corn ribs in the mixture, and transfer to the air fryer. Set air fryer to 390°F for 8 minutes. Shake the air fryer basket frequently so the corn ribs get evenly golden brown and toasty.
Brush corn ribs with sauce. Sprinkle smoked paprika, lime zest, and cilantro on top. Serve with lime wedges.
