This is a zingy recipe that cooks up corn wonderfully in the slow cooker! You wouldn't even know it was vegan.
I followed the recipe exactly for my first time out. My husband and I really liked the flavor, though it was too spicy for our three-year-old. The only thing I would change is that I wouldn't puree everything. We like our chowder a little chunkier, so I'll leave corn, potato and onion chunks aside when I puree next time. But I'll definitely make it again. My husband is a very confirmed meat/dairy eater and he had no idea this was vegan. I served it in bread boules for the adults and made mini-boules for the kids out of rolls. Fun, easy and warm/spicy on a cold New England night. - 28 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I'm a vegetarian and not a vegan so I didn't have any problem with using margarine. I used real milk, substituted green chilis for the red, and skipped the lime. It was totally yummy! My fiance made some homemade bread to complete the meal which I definitely recommend if you have a breadmaker. This recipe says that there are 6 servings but I think we will get closer to 10-12 out of it. - 13 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
very good. a little spicy. cut chili powder in half if you're a weakling like me. also, i only blended 1/4 of the soup into mush. left the rest chunky. - 02 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
