  • 3 ears 3 to 4 ears corn on the cob - or 2 cans 15 ounces canned organic corn
  • 1 tablespoon oil of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Shuck the cobs.
  • Cut the kernels off the cob and pick out any of the little tassels that are still clinging to the corn.
  • Flip the knife over and with the back of your knife scrape down all of the cobs and get all the 'milk' you can. This will make extra flavor.
  • In a skillet add the oil and heat to medium. Add the corn and the sugar.
  • Cook over medium heat without stirring until golden about 5 minutes.
  • Flip all of the corn over and cook on medium for about 5 more minutes. Scrap the pan and add the salt pepper and dairy-free milk.
  • Bring to a boil, turn down to medium and let cook about 10 minutes.
  • Scrape the pan again and it should be done. The liquid should be gone but the corn is still moist.
