"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." — BREGGIE110

When I first read this recipe I thought to myself, "What? No potatoes?" As a new vegan I find it important that meals are as hearty and satisfying as possible. So, with such a promising start, I eagerly set to work in the kitchen. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly except after sauteeing all the veggies I added 2 cups veggie broth along w/ th potatoes and simmered that until they were fork tender. I then added 1 cup frozen corn and 1 can cream style corn and the rest of the spices. (I however, did not add the garlic clove.) It was delicious! 5*****'s after changes.
Only OK. Not a strong corn flavor at all, the dominant flavor is garlic. If I don't find a better recipe, next time I'll cut the garlic powder.
Not bad. Spices are well blended. I did do something differently. I added more corn, (because it didn't look like there was enough for my tastes) and I used vegetable base instead of boullion. My soup never did thicken up so I used a trick my hubby learned in culinary art school. I added 1/2 cup of mashed potato flakes. Not bad. Good on a cold day like this.
I try to follow recipes but it's so hard to do as I'm told. I added broccoli and cauliflower chopped very small at the same time as the carrots. Then I diced 2 red potatoes, cooked them separately and blended them slightly before adding them. As far as spices are concerned, I added some cayenne and bay leaves plus a dash or two of red wine vinegar for balance. The result was very very yummy and I didn't really need flour thanks to the potatoes. My b/f and I are veggie so I'll add some good bread and wine; It's dinner!
Absolutely amazing!! I'm not a Vegan, but was invited on a "fast" with my church that prohibited foods that weren't on a Vegan diet. It was really hard, but this recipe really squashed a lot of those cravings I had for other foods. I used soy milk, and unless I were to taste chowders side by side, I could NOT tell that it used soy milk (and I don't even LIKE soy milk!). I strongly recommend this recipe to anyone, Vegan or not.
This recipe was really great especially considering how low calorie it is. I changed the veggies according to our tastes, left out the celery and added red bell pepper mushrooms and sweet potatoes. The one thing that nobody liked was the amount of black pepper. Next time I will use half or even a quarter the amount and let each person add pepper according to their own tastes. I also added a little potato flakes at the end to thicken it up.
This recipe is amazing! I did make a couple of changes: one extra tablespoon of flour and one less cup of water. It tastes wonderful!
This was so yummy! I've just became vegan about a month ago and I'm pretty much dragging my family along and this was something everyone enjoyed. When I make it again I will probably use less pepper, because it was quite spicy.
