Traditionally, chowders have a milk or cream base, but this creamy vegan corn chowder is dairy-free. Pureed silken tofu is a superb base for this comforting soup, providing substance and a silky texture. Featuring potatoes and carrots, it’s a mild soup that even picky eaters may enjoy.
The familiar flavors of this soup will entice kids of all ages to enjoy a soothing bowl of soup. For extra fun, serve with little oyster crackers (which of course, have nothing to do with actual oysters).
For those who’d like to spice things up, pass around a bottle of sriracha or other hot sauce or dried hot red pepper flakes. Extra parsley (and/or another herb like dill, if you’d like) will also be welcome for those who’d like to embellish a bit more.
Complete the meal: For an easy meal, serve the soup with your favorite vegan burgers, store-bought or homemade, on buns or English muffins. End with fresh fruit or a simple fruity dessert. If you like DIY when it comes to vegan burgers, here are some options:
