Street-Style Jerk Corn

I was inspired to create this recipe by one of my favourite spots, SugarKane Restaurant in Toronto. This recipe is a Caribbean take on elote, Mexican street corn, and is covered in the best flavours of the islands.

Like most of my recipes, you can customize it however you want, so feel free to turn up the heat or make it with sweetened coconut flakes.

Seriously Good Vegan Fried Chicken

This vegan fried “chicken” is so good, I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to regular fried chicken. No joke.

The key to the juiciness of these tenders are the oyster mushrooms – make sure that you’re using that specific type to get the familiar crunch and bite that usually comes with fried chicken. You can mix up the spices of the batter however you want, but don’t forget the pickle juice! It adds the tang and moisture that make this recipe so irresistible.

Vegan Macaroni Pie and BBQ Portobello Mushrooms

|

In Guyana, macaroni pie is a staple dish at Sunday dinners and an easy way to add colour, texture, and flavour to the dinner table. Its aroma is one that instantly makes you hungry when entering the kitchen and its creamy, cheesy texture infused with spices tingle the taste buds and opens the appetite.

I decided to pair this macaroni pie with barbecued portobello mushrooms because BBQ goes well with macaroni as the contrast in flavours balances out the meal. It’s a match made in heaven! Welcome to Chef Monty’s Sunday dinner, vegan style.
