Vegan Chipotle Corn Chowder
What a great meal for the Fall. A bowl full of sweet corn, diced potatoes, smokey chipotles, cumin, and oregano. You can make it as smooth or chunky as you like. You don't need the garnishes but boy do they add a nice mix of textures and flavors.
- 1 T. Vegan butter
- 1 Onion chopped
- 1/2 C. Celery chopped
- 4 garlic cloves chopped
- 2 Yukon Gold potatoes diced
- 1/2-1 Chipotle in Adobo sauce chopped
- 1 t. Oregano dried
- 1 t. Cumin toasted, ground
- 4 C. Corn kernels 4-7 cobs, mine were small
- 3 C. Vegetable broth
- 1 C. Water
- 1/2 C. Cashews raw

For the cashew cream, blend the water and cashews in a high-speed blender. If you don't have one, make sure to soak the cashews for an hour or two to help them blend more easily. Set aside.
Heat the butter in a pan. Sauté the onion until slightly brown.
Add the celery, garlic, potatoes, oregano, cumin, and chipotle. Cook this for about 5 minutes stirring frequently.
Add the corn and vegetable broth. Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes.
Blend the soup in batches until smooth. Add back to the soup pot. Add the cashew cream and combine.
Add salt to taste.
Garnish and enjoy!
