Vegetarian Corn Chowder Recipe

A delicious, simple vegetarian corn chowder recipe that can easily be turned vegan by using a milk alternative as for example soy milk.

This vegetable chowder is perfect both for a casual and simple summer evening meal, and elegant enough to serve as a first course for a fancier vegetarian dinner party.

A chowder is a rich soup made creamy and thick with a milk or cream sauce base. In this recipe we will not use any flour, but blend half of the vegetables after cooking together with milk and in this way get a creamy, thick chowder without any gluten.

If you are a vegan or lactose-intolerant, simply change the milk for a milk alternative as soy milk for example.

Vegetarian Corn Chowder Recipe

Serves 4-6

Here's What You Need

  • 2 cups vegetable stock, or 2 cups water and a vegetable bouillon cube.
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped.
  • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped.
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced.
  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels, canned, frozen or fresh.
  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder.
  • 1-2 Tbs fresh parsley, finely chopped.
  • 2 cups milk, or vegan milk alternative.
  • salt and black pepper to taste.

Here's What You Do

  1. In a large pan, bring the stock (or water and bouillon cube) to a boil.
  2. Add the onions, celery and potatoes.
  3. Bring to a simmer, then lower the heat. Simmer for 10 min.
  4. Add the sweet corn and paprika powder, simmer for an additional 10-15 min, until corn is tender.
  5. Bring the milk to a boil in another pan.
  6. Add the milk and the parsley to the chowder and turn off the heat.
  7. Blend about 1/2 of the chowder in a blender or food processor, then return and stir into the rest of the chowder to thicken it.
  8. You can add a little more milk if the chowder is too thick.
  9. Carefully re-heat the chowder if you like, but don't let it boil again as it might separate.
  10. Season with salt and black or white pepper to taste.
  11. Optional: Garnish each serving with a dusting of red paprika.
  12. Serve the vegetable chowder warm or cold.
