Vegan Corn Chowder Soup ~ Soup Recipes

This recipe is on my 'recipes to try' list from long time, actually long long time,  when we visited Pier 39 in the Bay Area in California in 2014. Clam Chowder served in a sourdough bread is a popular recipe on this pier, since I am not a fan of Seafood, i couldn't dare to try any Clam Chowder on the pier at that time, but I was determined to make a Veggie version of Chowder since then. Now it is happening, I wanted to try a simple soup recipe for this Thanksgiving potluck, i made this Vegan Corn Chowder recipe, that is thick, creamy and makes it very filling, however I made it little spicy in my version, that made it a popular hit at the table for our Indian Guests. And one more thing, finally i get to use my crock pot (slow cooker) for the first time that I bought couple of years ago as part of the Thanksgiving Sale. I am so thankful for this crock pot and this recipe, where you have to keep all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it take care of itself. Loved that two pending things on my list are done #1making this soup and #2 using my Crock-pot, :-)  here is the recipe for you, Njoy!


Oil - 1 Tbsp

Onion - 1 medium

Cumin Powder - 1 tsp

Potato - 4 medium (Russet Potato)

Carrot - 1 medium (optional)

Jalapeno - 1 (Optional)

Red Chili Powder - 1 Tbsp

Coriander Powder - 1 tsp

Turmeric - 1/2 tsp

Oregano - 2 strands

Sweet Corn - 16 oz (frozen variety) (if you are using fresh, use 4 cups of sweet corn)

Water - 1/2 cup

Coconut Milk - 1 can (16 oz)

Vegetable Broth - 32 oz ( 1 box) ( i have used plant based broth, low sodium)

Salt - 2 tsp salt ( as per your taste)

Lime Juice - 1 Tbsp (Optional)


Peel and Chop Onion into medium size cubes. Peel and chop potato into medium size cubes. If you are using carrot, trim edges, peel and chop into small size chunks. Thaw frozen corn in microwave and reserve 1/2 cup of corn (to add at the end)


  1. Heat the non-stick pan, add oil to it. Once oil is hot, add chopped onion, jalapeno and saute for 2 min, add cumin powder, turmeric powder and saute for 2 more min
  2. Add chopped potato, carrot, mix with onions and close the lid let it cook until outer edges becomes soft, add 1/2 cup water, coriander powder, red chili powder and cook on medium heat until potatoes become soft. 
  3. Add thawed corn to the pan, mix it well and cook for 5 min. After 5 min, everything becomes soft, use a potato masher and mash it nicely in the pan. 
  4. Start the Crock-pot in High mode for 4 Hours. Transfer the contents from pan to crock pot, add oregano strands, vegetable broth, taste and adjust salt as needed and close the crock-pot lid and let it cook
  5. After 2 hours, add the can of coconut milk to the crock pot and give it a stir and close the lid and cook for remaining 2 hours
  6. Finally add reserved corn and lime juice to the pot right before serving. 
  7. Transfer to bowl,  serve warm with a side of dinner roll or your favorite bread. You can garnish with few jalapeno rounds for extra kick. 

This soup is not very heavy like other creamy soups, but it is thick with loaded potatoes and has apt amount of creaminess from coconut milk, has enough warmth with lot of spice flavors. Trust me, Nobody won't say No to this soup, and your guests will go for second round for sure! :-)


  • Making this soup in crock-pot gives couple benefits, the process of slow cooking gives additional taste to the soup, and also it keeps the soup hot for longer period. (that makes it convenient avoids single serving heating separately)
  • If you don't have crock pot, you can use the same recipe in InstaPot with Soup or slow cook option
  • If you use russet potatoes, they cook faster and becomes soft. Otherwise, if your potatoes doesn't become soft easily with potato masher, then you can mash it in with the hand blender.
  • If you want to make this soup overnight, in step#4 start the crock pot in Low mode for 8 hours, on the night before your party. 
  • After adding coconut milk, if you feel like soup became thick, you can add more vegetable broth until you get the consistency you want. (make sure to taste and adjust salt as needed)
