Recipe: Vegan Sweet Spiced Corn Chowder


Even if you despise whole corn, you will adore this chowder.

...or chowdah.
This is not a traditional chunky, thick-cream chowder.  This recipe is smooth, silky and full of spicy flavor!  It's almost like a Spicy Mexican Tortilla Soup,  minus the tortilla chips!

Vegan Sweet Spiced Corn Chowder
Puree in blender:
1 small sweet potato, baked, mashed
2 cups veggie broth
1.5 cups soy milk
3 Tbsp Veganaise
2  cups organic corn, fresh or frozen 
2 Tbsp maple syrup
Saute over medium heat, until soft:
1/4 cup olive oil
1 small white onion, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 stalk green scallion, chopped thin
1/2 cup corn
Add all above ingredients to soup pot, plus:
1-4 tsp cayenne powder (how spicy do you want it?)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
2 tsp corn meal (optional for texture)
Stirring occasionally, allow to simmer, half-covered for 15 minutes. 
Add more broth as needed for desired consistency.
Garnish with fresh chopped spinach and cayenne powder. 
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste.
Health benefits of corn:
High in fiber and folate,  corn also contains thiamin (vitamin B1), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin C, phosphorus and manganese.  
One cup of corn contains 24% RDA pantothenic acid and 14% RDA thiamin.
