I love all kinds of soup. I especially like Thai coconut milk-based soups and corn and potato chowders. When I spotted a recipe for corn with potato chowder soup made with coconut milk on blog, Vegan Heaven, I had to give it a try!
I am sharing my experience making this delicious corn and potato chowder for the Pinterest Challenge blog hop. The challenge is an encouragement to not just pin projects and recipes, but to make them happen!

Coconut Milk Corn Chowder with Potatoes
This coconut corn chowder with potatoes is easy to make and can be made completely vegetarian with veggie broth, or with some chicken broth as I did. (I just happened to have chicken broth in my pantry.)
I found this soup quick to make and delicious, too! I thought I would have leftovers when I made this soup. But, my family ate every last bit of this comforting and savory soup.
Coconut Milk Corn & Potato Chowder Recipe
- 3 medium-sized russet potatoes, cut into cubes
- 5 cups corn kernels (I used canned)
- 2 stalks of celery, chopped
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 4 cups chicken broth (use vegetable broth for a vegetarian option)
- 1.5 cups coconut milk
- salt, to taste
- black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Cut all the vegetables into bite-sized chunks or slices. Put 2 cups of the corn in a blender with the coconut milk. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
In a large pot, sauté the onion in some oil until it becomes translucent. Add the vegetables, the chicken broth and the pureed corn. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
Season the soup with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the green onion and cilantro.
