Vegan Corn Ribs

Get that great big knife out of the drawer and give it a good sharpen: you’ll soon see why. Corn ribs are exceedingly tasty, but be warned that prepping the ribs is a hassle. One helped by a very sharp knife. Once you have the knack, you’ll never look back. These corn ribs are ideal for a snack, side dish, BBQ, or picnic, and they’re vegan as well.
Top with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, chopped spring onions, parsley, or chillies. The options are endless.

  • 4 sweetcorn cobs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Cut the corn into ribs. Do this by standing each cob vertically on a chopping board. Using a large sharp knife, cut the cob vertically down the middle. Repeat this, cutting the cobs again until you are left with quarters. A rolling pin can help push through the knife. Be warned: this is a tough exercise.
  • Mix together the oil, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  • Coat the cobs with the mixture.
  • If using an air fryer, place the corn ribs as a single layer, with some space in between, in an air frying basket. Cook the corn at 190°C for 10-15 minutes.
  • Or in an oven, cook at the same temperature (however, the time to cook will depend on your oven). Place the corn on a lined baking tray and bake for 25-30 mins.
  • Halfway through this time turn the corn ribs, checking to see they are cooking evenly.
  • When the cobs are cooked to your liking, serve in a large bowl.
