Creamy Vegan Potato & Corn Chowder (nut & oil free)

Creamy Vegan Potato & Corn Chowder. Deliciously creamy rich vegan soup. High in protein and low in fat. This recipe is also nut free.

One of my favourite soups has to be chowder. Who’s with me?

It’s creamy, it’s wholesome and it can take a load of different flavours, spices and vegetables. But, the chowders I ate before I went vegan tended to be full of dairy cream. Not really the healthiest or most compassionate soup around!

This Creamy Vegan Potato Corn Chowder is different though. I’ve seen a lot of vegan chowders that rely on cashews or plant based creams to achieve the silky cream texture. But, I used white beans instead of cashews to make the soup higher in protein and lower in fat.

The white beans are neutral and when combined with the potatoes and corn are barely detectable. By adding paprika and red pepper the chowder takes on a mild spiciness and the addition of plant milk and nutritional yeast add a buttery flavour.

The result is a super low fat, easy to make chowder that will warm your soul during the winter months or fill you up on a lazy can’t be bothered to cook kind of day!

You can have this soup blended smooth or reserve 1/2 to a 1/3 and blend the rest for a more chunky texture. Served on a bed of spinach and with a chunk of bread you have enough for a hearty meal.

I’d love to hear how this turned out if you make it! Post any pictures on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram, nothing makes me happier than seeing people enjoy these recipes!
