Vegan Corn Chowder Soup

This is one more recipe from the Good Food show that I mentioned here

I am not a big fan of soya milk. A friend who loved her flavoured soya milk once offered me some, and lets just say, I had it only because I didnt want to be impolite. Thats really not for me.

When i saw this recipe which uses soya milk, I was sure its going to be one of the recipes that I will never turn to, or even if I did, I would replace the soya with milk !
But I decided to be really brave and picked up some natural soya milk just to make this and it tasted awesome. Not that I will ever drink soya milk again, but will definately use it for this.

The corn here is really good, its almost out of season now, but during winter, there was so much of it all over the place, that I used corn in cutlets, pulav, salads and anything else I could find. It was so tender, crunchy and sweet and it added that extra something to every dish I used it in...

Here's my corn chowder, try it with soya milk and you will love it.
I did try it with regular milk and it was nowhere as good as the one with soya milk.

What you need -

2 medium potatoes
1 onion
3 cups corn nibblets
4 cups water
2 cups soya milk (natural flavour)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed pepper
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp soup powder (if you have some, I didnt)

What you do with it -

Peel potatoes and chop the potatoes and onion into small pieces
Put the potatoes, onions, water, salt and pepper in a saucepan and bring to a boil
(Add the soup powder too with this if you are using it)
Reduce heat and simmer till potatoes are tender
Remove from heat and stir in the corn
Take 2 cups of this and put thru the blender
Return the puree to the pan
Stir in soya milk and heat

Garnish with oregano and more pepper, if you can take the heat
