30-Minute Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder Recipe With Potatoes

Creamy soups scream comfort food. This creamy corn chowder recipe will comfort vegans and non-vegans, with the creaminess that comes from coconut milk and almond milk. The potatoes and the pureed corn add to the satisfying taste of a warm soup for cold days.

This vegan corn chowder recipe is made with potatoes, red bell pepper, corn, celery and carrots in a broth flavored with smoked paprika, Cajun seasoning and bay leaves. The Cajun season is optional, but it's perfect for those who like just a touch of heat. The creamy dairy-free soup only takes about 20 minutes to cook, and is on the table in about 30 minutes.
