Hearty Vegan Winter Corn Chowder

Hearty Vegan Corn Chowder

I have to admit, Winter is  a time when juicing loses a lot of it’s appeal (and I’m about to do another juice feast?? 😉 ) and hot soups really hit the spot. I’ve been craving and eating so much corn lately so this dish really did it for me. Not to mention I made it more than once which almost never happens in my kitchen!

Serves 2 as a meal or 4 as a side.


4 cups vegetable broth

1 small onion, chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp cumin

4 Tbsp organic corn flour

1 lb frozen corn

1 cup frozen bell peppers

sea salt and pepper, to taste

cilantro, for garnish

a squeeze of lemon

In a soup pot, saute onion, jalapeño, and garlic in a few tablespoons of broth until soft. Add broth, frozen corn, peppers, and corn flour and bring to a boil, stirring as you go. Once veggies are soft and soup has thickened, transfer half to the blender (carefully) and blend completely. Add the blended mixture back to the soup. Season to taste, transfer to bowls and garnish with cilantro and a squeeze of lemon.

Chilled “Brocco-Cado” Soup with Smoked Sea Salt and Garlic

Chilled %22Brocco-Cado%22 Soup with Smoked Sea Salt and Garlic

Not a gazpacho but not a piping hot bowl of soup either. The perfect Summer comfort food!


1 large head of broccoli
1 1/2 avocados
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked sea salt

Chop broccoli into bite sized pieces and put into a medium sized pot. Pour in enough water to just cover the broccoli. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until soft. When the broccoli is cooked through, pour the pots contents into a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for an hour (or until cold). Pour chilled broccoli and water into a blender and blend with remaining ingredients.

Food Porn for a Monday- “Stewp” and Cookies

I admit it: I miss my goat cheese already. I’m sure that I’ve gone days and days as a vegan in recent times without it even occurring to me, but what is it about something being “forbidden” that makes it all the more appealing??
In the midst of goat cheese longings however, I have had a recent surge of creative recipe inspiration that I’m very excited to experiment with and share here. Yesterday on the airplane I had so many ideas that I kept jotting down as they came to me throughout the flight. Poor passengers must have wondered what was wrong with the crazy Flight Attendant who kept stopping, mid trash pick-up, to giddily start scribbling on a napkin!

Today’s post is recipe free while I’m still playing with ideas, in the meantime go check out Linda Wagner’s tasty Stewp and Chocolate Covered Katie’s Peanut Butter Cookies with Brownie Batter Dip!
