Okay, I know I have been going a little overboard with the soups lately but I can’t help myself. I am the god damn soup queen! Yes, I’ve given myself this title. Soup is honestly incredible and this vegan corn chowder doesn’t fall short. The chipotle flavour in it is what ups the game. It’s easy to make, dairy-free but creamy, and loaded with flavour. 

You can whip up this creamy vegan corn chowder in 45 minutes! The thing about soup that people don’t tell you is that if it’s made in less than 30 minutes than it likely didn’t get that marriage of flavours that is so key to an amazing, flavourful soup. So 45 minutes is key to taking this soup (or any soup) to the next level. Pop the lid on, simmer, and let those ingredients do their thing.

Description

This vegan corn chowder recipe is loaded with flavour with the chipotle sausage and is incredibly comforting for the winter months.


Scale

Ingredients

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium-large sweet white onion, fine-medium chop
4 clove garlic, finely chopped
season to taste
1/2 cup green onion, roughly chopped
2 cups baby potatoes, halved
2 tbsp. vegan stock paste (optional)
2 heaped tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 package Field Roast Mexican Chipotle Sausage, roughly chop with a cooking spoon
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 cups almond milk
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 cups fresh corn
2 cups water or vegetable stock – do not use vegetable stock if using stock paste


Instructions

Preheat a large pot on medium-high heat for 30 seconds before adding olive oil.  Let the olive oil heat till the oil develops swirls, then add your onion and garlic to the pot.  Stir the onions and garlic to avoid burning then cook on medium heat for around 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent and a bit golden.

Now add your salt, pepper and green onions to the pot and stir till combined, cook for around 1 minute.

Now, toss in your potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Throw in your stock paste and nutritional yeast, stir till all the potatoes are well coated.

Cook for a few more minutes before adding your sausage and lemon.  Using your wooden spoon, break apart the sausage and stir around to incorporate into the potatoes.  Let everything get golden before adding the almond milk and fresh thyme. Stir well and cook for 5 minutes on low heat.

Now add your corn and water or vegetable stock,  stir the soup mixture well and increase heat to high to bring mixture to a boil, once boiling reduce heat to low and simmer mixture for 30 minutes to until potatoes are cooked till soft (use a fork to test).

Remove thyme sprigs before serving.  I suggest serving this beauty hot (not too hot)! It needs no additions as it’s just that perfect on its own.


Notes

Check seasoning when the soup has cooled a bit as you can’t taste salt as well when food is piping hot.

So so so good! Such hearty and rich flavours. Super Unique. Would 100% make again!

Thank you so much for the love Michelle!

Madeleine MacConnell

SO DANG GOOD! The smokey chipotle flavour is complemented so beautifully by the sweet corn! I used canned and it still turned out incredible. To enhance to corn flavour even more, I blended about half a cup of corn and added that to the broth. Wonderful recipe.

YESSS!!! Thanks so much for the love, hun!

For all those peeps out there who don’t have Field Roast sausages available to them I made this last night with a pack of Yves Veggie Ground and about 1/2 a Tablespoon of Chipotle in Adobo (I added a bit more to my bowl but this was the right spice level for the rest of my family) and it was AMAZING! Two kids and 1 picky husband were all singing praises for this soup and asked it to be a part of our regular rotation.

So delicious and addictive! The heat from the chipotle, the creaminess of the almond milk, the sweet crunchy corn and comforting potatoes…it’s the dream! Every recipe I’ve tried from Maria has been a hit, can’t wait to try more!
