Simple Corn Chowder Recipe (Vegan, Gluten Free, No Dairy)

We had a ton of leftover corn on the cob after our Labor Day party (mostly because with all the other dishes we were BBQing, we forgot about it in the fridge). I shucked and de-cobbed the corn kernels, bagged them, and decided to freeze them for later. Come fall, the corn made a perfect corn chowder (or Chowdahhh because this is New England)! This was super easy and a pretty low maintenance soup, which turned out great! It was super creamy and flavorful, and I made some amazing Homemade Herbed Croutons for the top.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour

Whats in This Corn Chowder?

1 tbsp olive oil (for sauteeing)
2 yellow onions
6 cloves garlic
3 stalks celery
4 cups of diced potatoes
1/4 cup gluten free flour
Pinch of turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
8 cups of veggie stock or broth
8 cups of corn, fresh
2 cups of cream (or cashew cream)
2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1 tsp dried rosemary
Pinch of red pepper flakes

How Do I Make This?

In a large stock pot, sauté the onion, garlic, and celery in a bit of olive oil until they are translucent. Add the salt, pepper, flour, and turmeric, and sauté for 3 more minutes.
Add the veggie stock and the potatoes and bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Add in the corn, thyme, rosemary, and red pepper flakes. Simmer on low for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the thyme and the cream.

At this point, texture is up to you – I used an immersion blender to thicken the soup a bit, but still kept it mostly chunky. You can puree the whole thing, or keep it unblended.
