Vegan since 1975, I decide to answer the question, "What DO you eat?" These posts tell about some meals and recipes my family and I have enjoyed over the years.

Corn Chowder

If you buy some corn on the cob which isn't as good as you hoped it would be, it's always helpful when someone says, “Make some CORN CHOWDER!” So, thanks, Dean. I was also making some soymilk, so I had plenty of that, too. This meal doesn't take too long to make, and doesn't require any bread with it to be filling.
Chop up and saute together one large onion, two stalks celery, four small carrots and three large potatoes for about five minutes in some olive oil.
Add one teaspoon salt, and either black or cayenne pepper to taste, along with two tablespoons of nutritional yeast and four cups of water.

Bring to a boil and then lower heat and cook for thirty minutes, covered.
Add two and a half cups of cooked corn that has been cut off the cob, or a couple of cans of corn, or a package of frozen corn. If you used the frozen corn, of course cook it until it is all hot.
Add four cups of unsweetened or plain soymilk and serve.

I have used vanilla soymilk when I had nothing else around. Also, since I hadn't sweetened the soymilk I just made, I did add about a half teaspoon of agave syrup to make up for that.
I thought it was tasty, and the boys came back for seconds.


  1. I don't like cooked celery in general, but it was a very tasty and satisfying meal.

  2. Do you object more to the taste or the texture?
