Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 4



  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 ears corn shucked
  • 1/4 cup Plant-Based Cream Cheese*
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 Tbsp brown mustard
  • 1 Tbsp agave
  • Green onion sliced for garnish

Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup plant-based mayo
  • 1/2 cup Plant-Based Cream Cheese*
  • 1 tsp lime juice


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Set aside.
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully halve the ears of corn lengthwise. Then, cut each half lengthwise, creating 4 equal pieces. Brush corn pieces with spice and oil mixture and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake until the corn is nicely charred and the slices begin to curl, resembling ribs, 18 to 20 minutes.
  • While the ribs bake, mix together the plant-based cream cheese, BBQ sauce, mustard, and agave. Remove the ribs from the oven and immediately brush with sauce mixture, while still warm. Top with green onions.
  • To make the dipping sauce mix together the mayo, plant-based Cream Cheese, and lime juice in a small bowl.
  • Enjoy!
