In here however, I am using the corn kernels to make a simple quick side summer dish. I like to add hing to avoid gas forming and to pacify the Vatta effect of corn. This dish goes well serve with fresh avocado, steam asparagus and basmati rice.

Absolutely delicious, 10-ingredient vegan banana cream pie! Crispy gluten-free crust, fluffy and silky cream center, and layered with 3 whole bananas! (Adapted from a recipe by The Minimalist Baker)
Don't let the 8 hours scare you. Most of this time is fridge time. Do note that you have to put the coconut milk in the fridge overnight, if you are making your own coconut cream. The pie is so worth all of the steps it takes to make it. In fact, you might want to prepare two of them, as I can assure you your guests will want seconds.
