Delicious, thick and creamy vegan corn chowder made without any cream or dairy! This easy vegan corn chowder recipe uses potatoes, coconut milk and a blender to get the most amazing texture. The perfect way to use up summer sweet corn!
In a large soup pot over medium heat add the olive oil, onion, garlic, poblano, diced potatoes, corn and saute for 6-8 minutes or until potatoes start to soften.
Slowly stir in the milk, vegetarian broth and sour cream, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan as you stir. Next stir in salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes uncovered or until the potatoes are tender and can easily be pierced with a fork.
To give a creamy texture, blend half of the soup (BE CAREFUL WHILE DOING THIS!) then return to the pot. Stir to incorporate and then taste and adjust seasonings as necessary -- adding in more salt and pepper if necessary.
To serve, sprinkle with cilantro, a swirl of sour cream (if not vegan) and scallions. Serve with bread or your favorite crackers. Makes 4 servings.
If not vegan, feel free to use regular milk and/or add 1/4 cup sour cream to give it additional creaminess.
