I was experimenting with different menu ideas when I became a vegan, and came across this great low-fat comfort food chowder. Great for a meal starter or even the main meal itself.
NOTE: If the soup doesn’t thicken, try putting in 1/2 C instant mashed potatoes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cubes vegetable bouillon
  • 2 cups corn
  • 2 cups soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions and celery; cook until just slightly golden. Stir in carrots and garlic; cook until garlic is slightly golden.
  • Meanwhile, bring water to a boil over high heat. Stir in bouillon, and reduce heat to medium. When bouillon cubes have dissolved, add corn and the vegetables from the skillet. Cook until vegetables are tender. Add water, if necessary. Reduce heat to low, and pour in 1 cup soy milk. Stir soup well, then stir in remaining 1 cup soy milk. Quickly whisk in flour. Stir in parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until chowder thickens, about 15 to 20 minutes.
