My hubby was sick the other day and I created this soup to make him feel better.
I used fake chicken, but you can leave it out and it would still be a hearty chowder (potato and corn).
Cut up 4 to 5 small red potatoes in small cubes. Boil on stove.
In a food processor blend the following:
1/2 sweet onion
10 or 12 baby carrots
a heaping spoonful of crushed garlic
hot pepper flakes
a few spoonfuls of olive oil
a cup 1/2 of plain soy milk
ground sea salt
Remove boiled potatoes and drain - set aside.
Pour blended mixture in soup pot. Add the following as soup cooks:
vegetable soup bullion cube
a few spoonfuls of gravy thickener or whole wheat flour
a huge, heaping spoonful of vegan margarine
a cup of water
As soup cooks, add more soy milk until desired thickness. You can add more water too, but don't go crazy with the H2O or you'll get a runny consistency.
1 frozen bag of fake chicken - cut into smaller pieces. Toss into soup.
Toss in the cubed potatoes
Toss in a 1/3 bag of frozen sweet corn
Cook into thoroughly heated.
