Vegan Corn Chowder

On Monday, I had a craving for Corn Chowder, and I found a Corn Chowder recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book on p.506.

I followed the recipe, but I made several substitutions to the recipe to make it vegan.

Here is the recipe.

Prep: 30 minutes

Cook: 20 minutes

Makes: 6 side-dish servings about 5 ½ cups

6 ears of fresh corn or 3 cups frozen whole kernel corn

½ cup chopped onion (1 medium)

½ cup chopped green sweet pepper

1 tablespoon cooking oil

1 14-ounce can chicken broth-replaced with Vegan broth

1 cup cubed, peeled potato (1 medium)

4 teaspoons all-purpose flour- replaced with Cornstarch

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

1 ½ cups milk-replaced with one13.5 FL. Oz (400mL) can of Coconut milk

3 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled, or 2 tablespoons cooked bacon pieces-omitted

2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. If using fresh corn, use a sharp knife to cut the kernels off the cobs; you should have about 3 cups corn. Set corn aside.
  2. In a large saucepan cook onion and sweet pepper in hot oil until the onion is tender but not brown. Stir in the chicken broth and potato. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in corn. Cook, covered, about 10 minutes more or until potato and corn are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a small bowl combine flour, salt, and pepper. Stir milk into flour mixture; add to corn mixture in saucepan. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Add crumbled bacon; heat through. If desired, garnish each serving with parsley.

Did I make substitution for this recipe? What substitution did I make?

Yes, I made several substitutions for this recipe. First, I repurposed the corn on the cob from barbeque on Sunday by cutting the corn off the cob and using it for the corn chowder.

Secondly, I replaced the regular chicken broth with Orrington Farms Vegan Chicken Broth Base & Seasoning. I used four teaspoons and two cups of water for the corn chowder recipe.

Third, I replaced the milk with Azul Coconut Milk 1 can 13.5 FL OZ

Fourth, I omitted the bacon and fresh parsley.

Fifth, I added two additional seasonings of Garlic Powder and Onion Powder.

With all of the above substitutions, the Corn Chowder turned out delicious.

Did I have any assistance with making the Corn Chowder?

Yes, I did. This was my first-time making Corn Chowder. I asked my youngest son for assistance because we could learn and prepare the dish together.

I had an amazing time prepping and cooking with my youngest son. He learned a lot from me, and I learned a lot from him. I learned that he retains and apply information about cooking. I am one proud Mom to have a son who enjoys assisting me in the kitchen. Next time, I will have both of my sons assist me with a meal.

Although it was my first time making the Corn Chowder, it was absolutely delicious. My husband, oldest son, and I enjoyed the Corn Chowder.

If you try the Corn Chowder, please let me know.
