Make vegan esquites – recipe

A simple recipe for a Mexican favourite. Esquites couldn’t be easier or tastier.


2 cups frozen or fresh sweetcorn 1 cup vegetable stock
1 cup diced white onion
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried epazote*

To garnish:

Chile powder
Vegan mayonnaise
Diced white onion
Fresh lime


  • ​Place corn, stock, onion, oregano and epazote in a medium saucepan
  • Simmer for approximately 10 minutes
  • Serve in small bowls, ensuring each bowl has plenty of stock
  • Garnish according to taste. In Mexico, people sometimes add cheese and cream so you could experiment with vegan versions of these.

*This herb is common in Mexico but may not be easy to find outside North America. Try online or specialty shops.
