Creamy Spiced Corn Chowder

Share

Soup season gets an elevated spin on the classic corn chowder in this creamy plant-based version that leaves out the dairy but not the flavor.

This dairy-free chowder can be as thick and creamy as you like, depending on how much of the soup you puree. Don’t forget to put the Salt-Free Hot Sauce on the table for those who want to add a little heat.

Ingredients

  • 1 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 russet potatoes, diced
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp black pepper ground

  • Optional to serve with the hot sauce.
