Whole Foods Plant Based Delicious Slow Cooker Chowder Recipe

Vegan and Healthy – Easy Slow Cooker Summer Soup – Potato Corn Chowder

Some summer days you are too busy to cook, right?  How about throwing some easy ingredients in the slow cooker around noon, or in the morning, and having a light, satisfying dinner ready for you when your family is hungry?

Simple Yummy Chowder

My daughter had a friend staying with us at our cottage, she loved this chowder.  “I love potatoes!”  She said, as she got up to get seconds, and thirds.  It was a great dinner for an active day of swimming outside. 

15 minute prep, with easy ingredients, wfpbno dinner

Ingredients include: Potatoes, Corn, Bell Pepper, Plant Milk, Salt, Pepper, Chives or Green Onions, Optional Hot Pepper

Peel and dice potatoes into small cubes, add them to the slow cooker, with fresh or frozen corn, some vegan vegetable stock, plant milk, a single orange, red, or yellow bell pepper, and seasonings.  

Lots of energy, in a low fat, plant based diet healthy meal.

Serve with fresh herbs like green onions, chives, or oregano for a real flavour burst.  

4 Hours to Cook on High, 8 Hours on Low

You can time this chowder to be ready when you are.  The longer it cooks the thicker it gets.

It might seem strange to have warm soup on a hot day, but the pepper could make you sweat, which cools you down.  Do you think this might be why east indian cuisine is often spicy?

I hope you enjoy this simple summer (or anytime of year) chowder. 🙂

  • Dice the bell pepper into medium sized pieces, not too small. Add to the slow cooker.

Notes

Serve with a plain vegetable, like steamed green beans.  We enjoyed mixing the beans into the chowder.
