Tips and Tricks to make the recipe for Slow Cooker Vegan Corn Casserole

Please read through the tips and tricks section so that your corn casserole will be a fabulous as mine!

  • First of all, being honest here, this corn casserole does not do as well on the second day. This is not a make-ahead and pull-out-the-day-of kind of dish. Luckily, it can be thrown together fairly quickly, then you just set and forget it for 3-4 hours until it is finished.
  • Not pictured (above) is the optional little can of chopped green chilies I like to add. My family tells me I’m crazy for adding them. I only recently started using them in this dish. I think it adds a little extra special to the flavor.
  • If you can’t find a vegan cornbread mix, I’ve included substitute ingredients so that you can make your own in the recipe notes. Just look at the end to see them. The beauty of this recipe is to dump, set, and forget so I try to use a mix when I can find it.

The Vegan Sour Cream/Tofu

It might be easier for you to find vegan sour cream than it is for me. If so, use a “like amount” in the recipe. I easily make mine with silken tofu and, white vinegar, and lemon juice. Silken tofu is different from regular tofu and works best in this recipe. I would not substitute in regular block style tofu. Silken tofu is most often self-stable. You can find it in Asian markets. I get mine from Amazon. You just open the tofu and gently drain out the liquid. DO NOT PRESS the silken tofu or it will fall apart! Add it to a blender along with the vinegar and lemon juice and process till smooth.vegan sour cream made of silken tofu

After you make the tofu sour cream, it’s simple as can be to dump it all into your slow cooker, set for about 2- 3, then enjoy the rest of your day while your corn casserole cooks! vegan corn casserole pin with text overlay
