Summer Corn Chowder {Gluten Free & Vegan}

I have been intrigued by Panera Bread's Summer Corn Chowder. Unfortunately it is full of dairy and gluten and does not meet our dietary needs. So I decided I would make my own safe version. Most of the similar recipes I found included a base with cream, butter and flour. I instantly knew that I could recreate a creamy texture with So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk.

The culinary coconut milk is an 11-ounce container formulated to work in recipes calling for a 14-ounce can of coconut milk, so if you can't find the So Delicious Dairy Free version, just use a can of full-fat coconut milk instead. There is also a Lite version that contains the same ingredients but has a lower calorie and fat count. I like the thickness of the Original and this chowder is filled with so many veggies, that it doesn't pack a ton of calories to begin with.

Summer Corn Chowder {Gluten Free & Vegan}

1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 small white onion, diced
1 medium bell pepper, diced
1 medium zucchini, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp each fresh thyme, oregano, and chives, finely chopped
3 cups stock
3 ears sweet corn, kernels removed from cobs
2 small-medium yellow potatoes, diced
1 container So Delicious Original Culinary Coconut Milk
Salt & pepper to taste

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat olive oil over medium. Add onion, bell pepper, zucchini, garlic, and herbs. Saute until vegetables begin to soften and become translucent. Add stock and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add corn, potatoes and Culinary Coconut Milk.

Simmer for another 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. If you want a thicker base, lightly mash the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I love to sprinkle in a few crushed red pepper flakes and enjoy this sweet and savory chowder with a side of cornbread muffins.
