Out of all the amazing veggies at the market, the one I consume the least is actually.. corn. Corn gets a bad rap at its one of the largest produced GMO crops and is lacking in nutrients compared to other veggies being mostly comprised natural sugar. As a result, perhaps that’s why I skip it on most occasions, but there is something about a good corn chowder that I’m just hooked on!
My favorite thing to do with recipes is marry the flavors of both savory and sweet. With corn being slightly sweeter, it makes for the per opportunity to pack on the heat!
In addition to corn getting a bad rap, all chowders have one too. When you hear the word chowder it conjures up visions of heavy cream. That being said, I was excited to revisit this recipe and create a vegan version that was more flavor packed and nutrient dense, and the vegan Grilled Corn Chowder was born.
What’s fab about this corn chowder, is simply everything! It’s a little more than 10 ingredients, but features mostly staples, is veggie packed, flavor packed, has a hint of smoke with the grilled corn, the cashew cream makes a great substitute for the typical heavy cream, it’s sweet, has heat, colorful, has texture, the poblano peppers enrich the flavor even more, and it makes for the perfect staple soup all year round!
If you’re all about modern vegan soups, you have to try my vegan Grilled Corn Chowder!
Why this recipe is great:
Sweet with a lil heat!
