1 teaspoon paprika
1 bay leaf
2 cups soy milk

This recipe is SO good.
I added a touch of ground red pepper and garnished with crushed corn chips.
Definitely a keeper. Thanks much for sharing this recipe!


Just made this. It was super good. I did not used the creamed corn. I used all frozen corn instead, and added a bit more flour to thicken it up! Yum! I'll be making it again.


I will have to try it with the hash browns, great idea, thanks you two! :)


This is awesome!
I too used frozen hash browns, the ones with peppers and onions, because it was a lot easier than dealing with potatoes and I was feeling lazy.  I omitted the celery - yuck! - and added some cayenne pepper to spice it up a bit and shredded a leftover chunk of (Follow Your Heart) Nacho cheese into it.  Sprinkled w/ baco bits.....delicious!


Yum, this was good.  I used frozen hashbrowns for the potatoes and instead of the bouillon cubes, I used 2 heaping tablespoons of vegetarian chicken broth powder.  I added lots of fresh pepper and some Baco-Bits before eating.  (Otherwise, it's a little bland, but still good).


I've made this twice now, and it was great both times. The second time, I added a bit more celery and carrot, and used 3/4c of medium barley in place of the corn. And just a touch more spice. It was still delicious, and a bit more "meaty" thanks to the barley.


Oh yeah, and per Festus' suggestion, I added a good bit of frozen chopped spinach, which was a GREAT addition!


Really delicious!! I subbed green onions for the celery and added about a 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast, but otherwise kept it pretty much as-is. The creamed corn makes it kinda sweet, so next time I think I'll add another can of chiles and/or add some chili powder. Thanks!!


Wow...this was really tasty.  I loved it.  I followed the recipe with the exception of adding fresh pieces of kale.  The kale cooked down perfectly and gave it some extra nutritional value.

Thanks for posting. ;)
