"This is a recipe that I've modified to be low-fat and vegetarian. The original called for heavy cream and chicken broth. I think it is quite yummy, and especially good on chilly evenings!"

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 30 minutes; drain.
  2. To the potatoes add corn, bell pepper, onion, red pepper flakes and vegetable broth. Boil for about 15 minutes; remove from heat.
  3. In a food processor or blender puree all but 1 1/2 cups of the vegetable and broth mixture with the tofu. Process in batches if necessary. Combine the pureed mixture with the remaining 1 1/2 cups vegetable and broth mixture, and cook over low heat for 5 minutes; do not boil. Season with salt to taste.

YUM. I just finished my first bowl. From the other reviews and my own experience, here is what I would change. 1) 1 TBS is way too much red pepper flakes. Use 1/4-1 tsp depending on how spicy yo...

I was so hungry for corn chowder, and looked through several "allrecipes" before choosing this one. I enjoyed the flavor of this soup, but the consistency wasn't thick enough for my liking, so I...

I was skeptical at first but this recipe is awesome! My housemates wouldn't believe me that this was a vegan, low-fat recipe. I like it so much better than soups with heavy cream. It's really pr...

What a delicious recipe! I love using the tofu to make the chowder so creamy--a great way to make a corn carb dish gain some protein and healthful soy. I just took this to my office holiday potl...

This hit the spot on a cold, rainy evening! I had to modify the recipe a bit, because I didn't have enough green pepper. I used about 1/4 cup green pepper and added a very small jar of diced r...
