Corn is one of those Summer vegetables I just can’t get enough of. I love corn on the cob from the grill – it tastes so sweet and its crunch is pure bliss. What better way to eat corn, well besides off the cob, than in hearty, creamy corn chowder?!

This vegan corn chowder recipe is so good you won’t even believe it’s vegan.

That’s my kind of recipe right there!

  • 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 large yellow onion diced (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 3 medium-sized red potatoes cubed (about 4 cups)
  • 3-4 ears of corn
  • 4 cups vegetable broth one carton
  • 1 14-ounce can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 Tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons red chili flakes (optional)
  • chopped green onions (optional)


  • Pour olive oil into a large soup pot and place on medium heat.
  • Add garlic, onion, and bell pepper. Cook until garlic is fragrant and onions are translucent.
  • Shuck corn and cut kernels off the cob.
  • Add vegetable broth, corn kernels, potatoes, and seasonings to pot. Bring chowder to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are cooked. You can check by sticking a fork through the potato.
  • Using a ladle, spoon half of the chowder into a blender. Add coconut milk.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Pour blended soup back into soup pot and mix well.
  • Let cook for 1-2 more minutes stirring frequently. Taste and season if needed.

If you like your chowder more soup-like, add more vegetable broth or water.
