Summer Creamy Corn Chowder

Welcome to recipe number 1 for Vegan MoFo 2013.

You will probably be sick of hearing from me by the end of September. 20 posts from today until September 30th, quite a challenge, but I am really excited and looking forward to cooking up a storm.

So, to start off, I was given some wonderful fresh local corn and after very little thought, a corn chowder came to mind. We have also received new white potatoes’ in our CSA basket as well as green onions, so they have been added.

To thicken the soup into a chowder, I have grated one white potato. As the  cooks, it breaks down and acts as a thickener.

The soy or almond milk gives a nice boost of protein making this a complete meal in itself. It is very filling, although I can never have just one bowl.
