Raw-Spicy-Fiesta-Corn-Dip-1

Light, refreshing, slightly sweet almost describes this dish but in the end, it is more like a fiesta party in your mouth.

Corn often gets a bad rap because most of it is GMO (genetically modified organism). There are many health questions about these techniques  and how it effects food.  But if you do your homework you can find NON-GMO corn.

For this recipe I wasn’t able to find organic corn on the cob at the time, so I used organic frozen corn.  I use the brand, Woodstock which is GMO-free.  If you want to read about their products, click here.   As always, I encourage you to use the best ingredients that are available to you. :)

Learning to eat a healthy clean diet is a step by step process.  Some people are able to jump right into it with both feet but others require putting one steady foot in front of the other.  I support you, wherever you might be in your journey.  Using corn as an example, since this is our main ingredient… moving from canned corn to fresh is one step.  Then choosing organic over conventional is another step.  It is all a process. And the more you practice these steps the more it will become a habit in your shopping.  Next time you head to the grocery store, keep these following tips in mind”

  • Choose Certified Organic Products: Organic foods are prohibited from being made with biotechnology (GMOs). The USDA Organic seal is verification that the ingredients used are non-GMO, even if the package does not separately call out the ingredients as such. Products labeled as “Made with organic ingredients” also cannot be made with GMOs. You can verify organic certification by checking the fact panel for a ‘certified by’ statement.  One quick rule-of-thumb: A product can be non-GMO without being organic, but a product can’t  be organic without being non-GMO.
  • Choose products with non-GMO Labeling: Third party verification organizations, like the Non-GMO Project, for example, audit and verify that a products for further assurance. For more information about the verification process, visit the Non-GMO Project website.

    Hi Amie-Sue,
    Hope you are having a fabulous new year so far! Judging by all the lovely recipes you share each day, I am sure you and your husband are enjoying January…
    I have made vegan mayo before, but would love to try this recipe with the corn and your version of the mayo…
    Also, I finally bought my agar-agar powder and will try one of your hard cheeses that do not need fermentation. :)

    Have a great weekend!

      Good morning Esl :)

      We are having a wonderful new year… I think it just trickled on from last year. :) I hope all is well on your end. I hope that you try these recipe Esl and you know that I would love to hear what you think. Over Christmas we had a full house for 3 weeks. I swear that I have never seen so much food being consumed in my house on a daily basis. haha During one the fridge raids, someone mumbled that they couldn’t find the cheese in the fridge. No cheese in our house but I can make some! So, I got to show my family how to make the vegan cheese with agar. It was a lot of fun and so great that it could be enjoyed within minutes after it chilled.

      I hope that you too have a great weekend. amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue -

    I made this today, raw vegan mayonnaise and all! I must say, it is fantastic! I had to force myself to stop eating it long enough to come write this thank you for such a great recipe….two recipes actually, if you include the mayo. This corn dip has the perfect amount of heat and a wonderful texture! I used a little less than 1/2 cup of mayo and ate it as a salad rather than dip.

    I just winged it and put about a 1/2 cup of cilantro, but was wondering how much you used?

    I’m going to have to make another batch so that my husband can try it. Yep, that means I’m going to eat the entire 1st batch myself. Oink!

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Maureen,

      It is so good to hear from you. Thank you for sharing this. I sort of winged it myself on the cilantro. I find this herb to be a very personal thing for each person. Adding to much can make a recipe taste soapy, well to me anyway. So as long as you find a happy medium with it, that is all that matters. Always adding a lessor amount and building up while taste testing is the way to go. :)

      Your so cute, go make another batch for that husband of yours so he doesn’t feel left out. hehe Have a glorious day, amie sue

    Hello, hello :)

    1) You are talking about non-GMO corn… we don’t have organic corn where I live — odd enough — but there is corn with the less chemicals as possible (farmers said) but it is those corns with F-1, etc… seeds. To your knowledge, are those can be acceptable to eat or should I try to grow some next summer if I can find seeds that are heirloom and natural….

    2) Your vegan cheese with agar… what is the name of the recipe?

    Thank you so much…

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Amyah,

      I am no fully aware of F-1 corn. So I did some reading to brush myself up on it. It’s a cross between two different plants which creates something new and exciting. I read a pretty good article on this site about it. http://daughterofthesoil.blogspot.com/2006/07/f1-hybrids-what-every-gardener-should.html. For me, I always aim to eat all of my foods in the form that are closest to its true natural. I know depending on where a person lives, finances, etc it can be hard to find or choose top quality ingredients. My only bit of advice is to always do the best you can with what you have. If it doesn’t sit right within you, don’t eat it for sure. If you can grown your own with heirloom seeds, that would be awesome, no doubt about that.

      What cheese are you referring to? I have many. Under the recipe category there is a section called “Nut cheese”…. click there and you will see all that I have shared so far. I hope this helps, amie sue

    Thank you for the link… interesting.

    I think I will try to get some heirloom seeds and build a cage around the little corn field against the gizillion of deer, elk, bears who think my place is the best in the world :(

    As for the cheese, it is the one you were talking about… when you had many visitors and somebody complained you had no cheese in the fridge nd you made this one…

    Anyway, I have almost all of your cheese recipes and they are gorgeous :)

    Thank you and have a wonderful day

    • amie-sue says:

      Critters can take a tole on veggies for sure. We have a hard time keeping the deer out of our cherry orchards. They love them as much as I do. hehe The cheese that I was referring to was the Horseradish flavored one on my site. Have a happy day, amie sue

  5. mari says:

    I must know is cashew really raw? I heard thru You tube that is one thing should avoid what do you say?

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Mari…

      Your question is one of top controversial questions in the raw world. Most cashews that you will find in the grocery stores are not truly raw. Nuts are one of those ingredients that I really do my homework on. I question manufactures to really find out what their process is. When you look through the Internet, you will read tons of thoughts and opinions. My best advice is to investigate the brands that you have available to you. I order mine on-line. One company that I have very pleased with when it comes to organic, raw nuts and seeds is http://www.wildernessfamilynaturals.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?.

      I hope this helps, have a great evening, amie sue

  6. LeJeune Dugue says:

    I want to try this recipe – do you eat it with anything, like a cracker?

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello LeJeune,

      You eat as is, spread on bread or crackers. I have a few ways of eating it coming out real soon to help give you more ideas. Have a great evening, amie sue

    amie sue , I made this yesterday, i used frozen organic corn because i can not find any fresh organic corn, i made also the cashew mayo, it all came together wonderful and i loved it, thanks so much. I am learning to eat more raw and had to stock my pantry with some organic products and alternative sugar, thanks for your good information. pier marie

    • amie-sue says:

      So proud of you Pier. I sometimes have to revert to frozen too, in order to get organic, non GMO foods. It’s all about making the best choices that we can with what we have available to us. Thank you so much for sharing. I love hearing from you. Blessings… and give those pups an ear rubbing for me. hehe amie sue
