We love this hearty corn chowder recipe!
This corn chowder recipe made with corn and potatoes is super easy.
We made this as part of a 3 Vitamix soups video. And while it looked the worst of the three, it was our favorite!
It’s hearty, it’s textured, and it’s super tasty. And it’s 100% plant-based (without even trying) and WFPB with a minor substitution.
It’s based on the Corn Chowder on the Vitamix website. Our version used a bit more corn, salt, and pepper.
Great for a winter meal right away or later. We froze our leftovers in these Souper Cubes.
It lasts in the fridge for up to a week.
Highly recommended. Try it!

Useful tips for Corn Chowder
Recipe calls for olive oil for sautéing the onions. But if you’re whole food plant based, just use water.
You're in control of the texture for this soup. The image from the original recipe shows a silky smooth texture. To get that, blend on the highest speed your blender will go.
But we wanted a bit more texture, so we blended on variable speed 7, giving it a less silky look and feel. Up to you!
