Scrumptious Corn Chowder

What you need: 

1/2 sweet pepper, finely diced
1/2 large vidalia or yellow onion, diced
1 large red potato
3 cups water
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast, divided
1 tablespoon vegetarian chicken-flavored broth mix
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons seasoning mix, optional
3 cups frozen (or blanched, fresh) corn kernels, divided
2 cups nondairy milk

What you do: 

1. Saute the onions and red pepper in a nonstick pan or with a spray of nonstick coating until the onions are translucent. Add the potatoes and continue to saute for 5 more minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking.
2. Add the water, 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, broth mix, salt, and herbs. Simmer for 20 minutes, until the vegetables are completely cooked.
3. Meanwhile, blend the milk, 1 cup corn and the remaining yeast in a blender until absolutely smooth and creamy.
4. Just before serving, add the other 2 cups corn to the broth and vegetables and simmer 4-5 additional minutes until the corn is hot. Add the oat/corn cream to the soup and heat through. Do not boil, as the “cream” will tend to separate if you do.
Serve with a green salad and slices of whole-grain vegan bread for a wonderful, hearty meal on a cold winter day.
This is one dish that will surely have some of your non-vegetarian friends looking at you with suspicion and asking, “are you sure there’s no cream in this?” It is rich and satisfying, while low in fat and calories. It is also a properly combined food and perfect for a quick, cozy supper or light lunch.

I used almond milk instead of oat or soy milk, because I had a carton in the fridge that was about to go bad, and that was good. Also I used Stahlbush Super Sweet Frozen Corn, which is the most delicious frozen corn on the planet...Awesome!  :D


This was recommended by my little brother and it was awesome!! he suggested to use coconut milk... mmmm.  good choice bro.


Well I submitted this recipe about 10 years ago, and I am just now looking at it again. Thanks for all of the wonderful comments! I'd forgotten this soup, so I'll have to make it again. We all loved it back in the day. Diana Barefoot    :)>>>


This is really good!  I never had real chowder, so I don't know how it compares, but I really like this.  I've made it a couple times now, and mine doesn't really get thick... I thought chowder was supposed to be a thicker soup.  I'm sure it's something I'm doing (or not doing) that's not making it come out right.  Anyone have any ideas on how to get it to come out thicker?  Thanks in advance for any help.


This is one the best corn chowders I've had yet!  It was very hearty and had great flavor.  I followed the recipe pretty closely, only using plain veggie broth powder instead of the "chicken" flavored kind.  And for the herb/seasoning I didn't feel like getting too crazy or inventive so just used Mrs. Dash's garlic and herb.  The only thing that didn't completely deliver was the "creaminess", I didn't really get that from this soup, but it doesn't detract from its awesomeness ;)


My husband made this for me last night, and it was excellent!  He used basil, oregano and thyme in place of the Spike, and it turned out great.  We both loved it, and will definitely make it again.


so f-ing amazing!..... i love eating this cold

i used a red pepper and just a regular potato. i also didn't add any yeast or spike

oh,and i only had about 1/2 a cup of soy milk,so i just watered it down

i don't recommend that you use an intire onion ,it was too much...... see ya

  I made a double batch of this chowder last night. Excellent recipe, it was delicious. I think I'll modify it a little next time by using a bit less Mrs. Dash (came out kind of too peppery) and by adding more potato and running some of it through the blender to thicken the broth a bit more. Might be good with some fresh green beans added too. All in all this was easy, economical and delicious. Thanks for posting it!


This corn chowder was FABULOUS! It was rich and chunky, just the way I like it. I didn't have any nutritional yeast, and could not find it at the grocery store, so I just skipped it and added an extra tablespoon of the broth mix. I went out of the box and added one seeded jalapeno for some heat. This tastes just as good as my favorite coffee shop's corn chowder, and that's really hard to beat! I'll be making this frequently!


This chowder is delicious!  I used thyme and some fresh pepper instead of Mrs Dash, and added some hijiki, for some "sea" flavor. YUM!!!
