If you haven’t heard of the corn ribs craze yet, then get ready to have your world rocked. My Buffalo Corn Ribs are THE quintessential summertime snack, and are a plant-based twist on the ribs that you know and love. With corn in its peak season right now, this is the BEST time to make this recipe. I promise, it’s going to be delicious!
If you’ve spent any length of time on the food side of TikTok recently, then you might’ve seen the latest food craze… corn ribs. What the heck are corn ribs, you may ask? Well, they’re buttery stalks of corn that are cut, seasoned, and eaten like ribs!
People have put their own twist on these ribs, making an elote version, a BBQ version, and even a Caesar salad version (true story). But mine are buffalo-style, and in my very humble opinion, I think they are the best. No shade to anyone else; I just love buffalo!
These corn ribs are naturally gluten-free, and we’re keeping them dairy-free / vegan-friendly by coating them in a little bit of vegan butter. I like dipping mine in a blue cheese dipping sauce, which, evidently, is NOT vegan-friendly or dairy-free, but you can absolutely use a different dipping sauce, or try a vegan-friendly blue cheese sauce (Daiya makes one that people seem to love!)
Regardless of whatever modifications work for you, I encourage you to try out this recipe. It’s a delicious, healthy-ish snack that will keep things exciting, this summer! Oh, and not to mention, my boys love these, so they’re kid-approved, too. 🙂
All you need are four ingredients to make these Buffalo Corn Ribs – it’s easy-peasy!
To make corn ribs, grab a corn on the cob and slice it into 4 quarters. Stand the corn up straight, hold it firmly and cut in half. It might be a little difficult, but I have faith in you, you can do it! After you’ve cut the corn in half, lay the two pieces flat and slice once more, so that you have 4 pieces!
After that, coat your corn pieces in buffalo sauce.
Then lay them in the air fryer and air fry at 400F for 10 minutes, flipping once half way through.
Pull them out of the air fryer, then coat with more buffalo sauce, and eat…just like ribs!
Dip in your favorite sauce!
If you’re wondering what to do with your corn cobs after you’re done with them (aside from just throwing them away!) here are some ideas of how to use them:
