Dreamy Corn Chowder

Did you ever have an experience in the kitchen where you just said "Wow. This is why I cook." ? Creating this recipe (vegan, gluten-free, fat-free & less than 200 calories in each creamy, delicious bowl) was like that for me. It was snowing outside, and I was bored. I was craving a thick soup. I threw a bunch of things in a pan and...voila. I truly believe that this one of the best recipes I have created so far.

This recipe proves to me that I am not just a kid messing around in the kitchen. I am improving and learning every day. I'll admit that it's not gorgeous, but what it lacks in appearance it makes up for in taste. Enjoy.

Guilt-free corn chowder makes a great lunch or dinnner on a cold day.

  • 1 small potato
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp. nutritional yeast
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • 1/8 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic salt
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • green onions & red bell pepper, for garnish

Cut the potato into large chunks and boil it until soft, about 7-10 minutes. Puree the potato, with the skin on, in a food processor. Stir in the almond milk, as well as the seasonings. Heat the corn in hot water. Add to the potato mixture. Heat to desired temperature and garnish with green onions & red bell pepper.



Yummy! I made something similar to this in the food processor with potatoes, broccoli, and white beans last week. I love how creamy soups like that turn out! I will have to try this one.


Wow, yummy. It looks delicious! Thanks for sharing!


I want it. Now.

This looks sooo good! I love soup, especially on cold days. Isn't it so neat when you just throw something together and it turns out so great?


Go Katie! That looks delicious!


I'm pretty sure that is the most beautiful bowl of chowder I have ever seen :o) It looks so hearty and delicious. You are certainly taking a step up in the kitchen - great job!

Love the cat tail ;o)


I love that you did the recipe for one! None of my fam/friends are even remotely attracted to foods that don't have meat in them, so this is perrrrfect for me :)


Yum, that looks delicious!

Oh that sounds awesome! I LOVE this post. The kitty tail just made me so happy. :) I only have a mini food processor so I don't know if I could make this...
Can you tell me a little about alkalizing?

Hey Harriet  

Oh my gosh this looks so good! Thanks ever so much for sharing the recipe. YOUR clever recipe! Even though it's summer here right now & not really soup kind of weather I am still going to make this as soon as I can!


Yum! I wouldn't have thought to cook with almond milk!


This soup would be perfect for this freezing cold day - it sounds delicious.

The winter crumble down below looks amazing too.


Hola Katie, claro que me acuerdo de ti, veo que cocinas muy bien y tu blog está lleno de cosas bonitas y buenas. Te deseo Feliz Navidad y espero que sigamos viéndonos por aquí.

Oooh, I love this healthier version. Clam chowder is one of my favorites but it's normally so unhealthy. This is great!


Looks rich, creamy, and healthy. Love the consistency that you got.


That looks like pure comfort in a bowl. Happy Holidays!


Certainly does look dreamy.
