Vegan Corn and Potato Chowder

One of my husband's favorite recipes! Creamy, cheesy, smoky Vegan Corn & Potato Chowder 💛 I posted the recipe years ago but wanted to revive it with some fresh new photos because we love it so much. I always have fun veganizing old comfort food favorites - I find I enjoy them even more with healthier, fresh ingredients. This creamy chowder only has 8 simple ingredients, is super easy to assemble, and rich with cozy, comforting flavors. (I love that golden/cheesy broth!) Hope you enjoy it too!

PS - come join The Garden Grazer on Instagram 🍓 and share a pic if you make this! I love seeing what you guys cook up.

Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free
Serves about 4-6

1 onion
8-10 small red potatoes (about 2 lbs. or 4-5 cups diced)
3-4 cloves garlic
3 cups corn (frozen or fresh)
3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups plain almond milk, unsweetened
2/3 cup nutritional yeast (I use this brand)
1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
Salt/pepper to taste
Optional: fresh chives or green onions for garnish

Dice onion. In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, saute onion in 3 Tbsp. broth/water for about 7-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, mince garlic and cut potatoes into about 3/4" chunks.
Add potatoes and smoked paprika to pot. Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add broth, milk, corn, and nutritional yeast. Increase heat and bring to a light boil.
Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Salt/pepper to taste, and add more nutritional yeast if desired.
Leave as is, or blend some for a creamier texture. (I like to blend about half with an immersion blender.)
Garnish with fresh chives, green onion, etc. if desired.
