4 ears of corn on the cob, husks removed and cleaned (white corn is my favorite)
2 limes (1 lime will be reserved for garnish and cut into 4 pieces or wedges)
1/2 stick of Earth Balance soy butter
1 TBL cilantro, finely chopped
salt for the finished corn *optional

In a large pot, lay in corn on the cob pieces, fill with water, and bring water to a boil. Once water starts to boil, boil for 5 minutes.

While corn is on the stove, make the cilantro lime butter. Place Earth Balance in a zip-lock baggie. Cut 1 lime in half, squeeze the juice into the butter zip-lock baggie and cut off some of the lime pulp after squeezing and add to the baggie. Toss cilantro into baggie and zip shut, except for a tiny corner to let the air out. Gently massage the baggie to combine the butter, lime and cilantro. Once combined, unzip, turn the baggie inside out to lay the mixture on a sheet of saran wrap plastic wrap (note, there will be lime juice that did not mix in with the butter, keep this together with the butter in the plastic wrap). Fold up the plastic wrap to enclose the butter and loose lime juice and roll into a small log. Stick in freezer until ready to use (less than 15 minutes).

Once the corn in done, place each piece on its own plate, spread with the cilantro lime butter and sprinkle with salt. Cut a slice of the butter and lay on top for garnish. Add a lime wedge to the plate for garnish and serve.

Tip: To get my corn water to come to a boil faster, I use some water from my hot water dispenser. If you have one, use half of the water from here so it comes to a boil quicker. You can place a lid on the pot until it starts to boil, but always leave ajar, slightly tilted off so the water does not boil over. Remove cover once boiling.

1/2 cup (1 stick) Earth Balance
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 chipotle chiles in adobo, seeds removed and finely chopped
6 ears of corn on the cob, cleaned but left in husks

In a small bowl, combine earth balance, garlic, salt and pepper, mashing together with a fork. Add chipotles and mix well. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the mixture to a 12 inch piece of plastic wrap. Roll mixture, in wrap, to form a log (about the size of 1 stick of earth balance. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Preheat gas grill on medium-high for about 10 minutes keeping lid closed. Place corn on grill and cook for 12 minutes, turning occasionally to brown the husks evenly. Serve immediately with chipotle butter on the side.

Tip: Instead of chipotle, try using freshly chopped herbs or squeezing a fresh lime wedge over your corn.
