Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder-InstantPot

A healthy Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder that is super delicious and comforting. Velvety  texture and incredibly tasty, this chowder is hearty and nourishing. Suitable for Glutenfree, Vegan and Soy free dietary preferences. 

This Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder makes a frequent appearance on our dinner menu planning. And for all right reasons. It’s superbly creamy without extra calories and actual cream in it. You can enjoy it guilt free without sacrificing the silky smooth texture and lively feel that we often crave from comfort food.

If you check the ingredients,  I am using only 1 cup of almond milk and 1/4 cup of corn starch to thicken the soup. I prefer not to douse the natural ingredients with cream and other fillers. Trust me, you won’t miss the cream and cheese and those extra calories in this delicious chowder. Leave the cream and the calories for a slice of a cake later 😉

Creamy Vegan Corn CHowder-InstantPot


This seriously delicious Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder can be made in InstantPot, pressure cooker or on the stove top. Takes about 30 minutes from start to finish to get a big warm bowl of heavenly comfort to your table. Very few ingredients and physical efforts are involved. Most of the ingredients are pantry and refrigerator staples.

Which Potatoes Should You Use ?
I used red baby potatoes in this recipe. They hold the texture better without becoming too mushy or stewy ( I just made up that word 🙂 Plus no need to peel them either. Just rinse them really well so all the soil and dirt comes off. You can use any variety of potatoes you have in hand. Try avoiding baking potatoes. You don’t want it to become mashed potato soup 🙂

Choosing Organic Ingredients:
This recipe uses very few basic ingredients. However, onions, celery,  carrots, potatoes are all on the dirty dozen list of vegetables that contain high levels of pesticides. So as far as possible,  I try to buy these veggies only organic. I have read that most corn produced in US is genetically modified . So I always buy organic , non-GMO corn. The price difference between organic and non- organic is very minimal too.

I am using almond milk to thicken the soup and add the creamy feel. You can substitute any dairy free milk of your choice if you like. Also rice flour can be substituted for corn starch. Such a beauty of versatile, easily adaptable recipe.

This Creamy Vegan Potato Corn Chowder is delicately flavored. My family loves baked potatoes soo much. This soup mingles the superb taste of baked potato,  sweet corn and  holy trinity of soups – onion, celery and carrots. Chives and potatoes are inseparable so sprinkle of chives , black pepper  and onion salt brings the delicious flavors. InstantPot does a superb job of infusing herbs and cooking everything smoothly.

Gather around the table. Grab yourself a  generously portioned BIG bowl of this creamy vegan potato corn chowder soup. And let the good times roll !!!!
