The original recipe (clipped from a Korean newspaper) called it corn mayonnaise. We prefer it thicker, like a hummus. Hearty and somewhat sweet, this is great as a dip. It's also tasty as a spread on sandwiches!

Good and sweet! I added chopped onion instead of the powder. We enjoyed it as a vegetable dip! Read More

It was much less creamy than hummus and didn't have much flavor. I would add a tablespoon of tahini next time and maybe more garlic. Otherwise a neat alternative for those who cannot tolerate legumes. Read More

Very yummy! I used chickpeas another time I made this and added some extra virgin olive oil to make it a little smoother. But love the cashew flavor with it! Read More

I brought it to book club today and a few people raved about it. I used the water from the can of corn to thin it out until the Vitamix could process it. I also added a half teaspoon of curry powder because I thought it would be great and it was. I skipped the onion powder because of an allergy and used a fresh clove of garlic. Read More
