Summer Corn and Potato Chowder – Vegan and GF

Summer Corn and Potato Chowder

This is the perfect way to use fresh summer corn.  It is creamy, sweet and delicious.  This chowder is full of corn, veggies and fresh herbs.

Summer corn chowder is something I look forward to every year.  I love going to the farmer’s markets to stock up on all of the sweet corn.  It is great to eat right off the cob, but I love it just as much in this chowder.  The fresh corn is the key to this recipe.  You can use frozen, but it just doesn’t have as much flavor.

For this chowder I used red peppers, but you can change up what goes into it.  Zucchini is great in this recipe as well.  I use almond milk when I make this, but you can use your favorite nondairy milk.  Coconut milk might change the flavor quite a bit though.

Another great summer soup is Creamy Tomato Basil
