A creamy, low cal, low fat corn chowder perfect for cold, winter nights. This stuff will really fill you up. You won't miss the heavy cream - promise!
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    - 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (You can use regular milk if you aren't vegan, but it will add cals.)
    - 2 medium cooked baked potatoes
    - 1/2 tsp salt
    - 2 cups cooked corn
    - 1 medium carrot (cut into pieces small enough to blend)
    - 1/4 tsp paprika
    - 1/4 tsp dry mustard
    - 1 veggie bouillon
    - 1/ tsp white pepper
    - cayenne and black pepper to taste

    Optional: 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (or 1/2 cup shredded cheddar) - not included in nutritional info because I don't always add.

Directions

Cook corn according to package instructions. I normally just steam my potatoes in the microwave for 5 or 6 minutes, but you can bake if you prefer (though prep time will be longer).

Set aside 1 cup cooked corn and 1 potato.

Blend remaining ingredients until smooth. Don't over-blend, as mixture should still be relatively thick. 1 have Blentec, so very little pre-chopping is required, but you may need to cut your carrot and potato up into small pieces for your blender.

After mix is smooth, add second potato and pulse until chunky.

Transfer to stove top and add second cup of corn.

Let simmer until flavors merge (about 15-20 minutes) and season with cayenne and pepper to taste.

The hubby likes to add baco bits to his, but I just serve with oyster crackers or, even better, tortilla chips!

Serving Size: Makes 3 big bowls (I know not very scientific.)

Number of Servings: 3
