Vegetable Chowder



I made vegetable chowder today because I needed to get rid of some produce that I had hanging out in the fridge. This came out really nice, fairly creamy and tasty!

Vegetable Chowder

2 TB olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 celery rib, sliced
1 cup frozen corn
2 cups vegetable broth
2 small red potatoes, diced
1 medium zucchini, diced
1 carrot, sliced
1 cup plain soymilk
1-2 tsp cornstarch
pinch of nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a soup pot on high. Saute onions, bell pepper and celery until softened. Add corn and stir for a few minutes. Add broth, potatoes, zucchini and carrot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cover for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add soymilk and continue to simmer. At this point, I like to break down the potatoes a bit by mashing some of them with a wooden spoon to make the soup thicker. To thicken it a litt more, dissolve the cornstarch in a little water and then add slowly to soup and then bring it to a boil for 1 minute. Add nutmeg and season with salt and pepper and let simmer until heated through.
