An amazing plant-based, vegan-friendly, soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free Fresh Corn Salsa recipe that makes approximately 12 servings and takes about 20 minutes to prepare, with no additional cook time.
Let's face it; Chipotle is probably one of the healthiest forms of fast food available. Chipotle prides itself on using 53 ingredients that are easily pronounceable. No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, EVER! I love that and find it super easy to eat plant-based, soy-free, and gluten-free.
My go-to meal is a veggie bowl with brown rice, pinto beans, fajita veggies, fresh tomato salsa, guacamole, roasted chili-corn salsa, and romaine lettuce. Usually, when I get home, I add some of my homemade Cashew-Based Mozzarella Cheese before topping it with some plant-based sour cream.
Nonetheless, eating there can be expensive as everything adds up quickly. You pay extra for just about everything, so why not bring chipotle to your kitchen for a fraction of the cost? Thankfully, when ordering the veggie bowl, all the extra deliciousness is free, so I am sure to get my money's worth.
Personally, I prefer to be able to customize my foods, considering I am a red onion lover, not when most restaurants use white onion. I also like to know exactly what is in my food, and I find comfort in knowing my meals are organically made.
So without further ado, I introduce my Chipotle-inspired Fresh Corn Salsa recipe. I think it's safe to say you'll enjoy it as much as my family. Since I am allergic to soy and have adapted to a plant-based lifestyle (no meat or dairy), this recipe is vegan-friendly, plant-based, soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free. This dish can be served as an appetizer with tortilla chips or over homemade tacos or burrito bowls.
