This poblano corn chowder was based off my traditional vegan corn chowder. It can be made creamy like chowder or make like a traditional broth based soup!

Ingredients

The roasted poblano chilies give the perfect flavor and mild heat to this classic soup. You can either leave it all chunky, or create a comforting creamy base. It’s all easy to do with simple whole food ingredients, making it a healthy and satisfying meal.

To make this vegan poblano corn chowder, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Poblano chiles – these peppers are relatively mild. If you need them to be extra mild make sure to remove the ribs from the inside, as this is where most of the spice will be, but it isn’t necessary.
  • Corn – either cut the corn kernels off of fresh corn cobs, or use frozen or drained canned corn to make it extra easy.
  • Potatoes – Yukon golds are our favorite to use, but red potatoes or russets work as well.
  • Onion – sweet or yellow onions are ideal for their neutral taste.
  • Garlic – fresh garlic cloves will give you the best flavor. For a sweeter flavor, roast the garlic in addition to the chilies and corn.
  • Veggie broth – keep this poblano corn chowder vegan by using vegetable broth, if you eat meat you can substitute it for chicken broth. Make sure to choose low sodium if needed.
  • Lime Juice – it is best to use freshly squeezed lime juice, however if you have to use bottled you can.
  • Cilantro – this fresh herb adds amazing flavor, I do not recommend skipping it.
  • Raw cashews – These are optional but create the most creamy texture! Adjust the amount of cashews for how creamy you want the soup, add more for extra creaminess.
    • If you choose to make the creamy version and don’t have a high-speed blender you will need to prepare the cashews with one of these methods:
      • Soak the cashews overnight.
      • Boil them for 30 minutes.
      • Grind them (without soaking) into a fine powder using a coffee grinder.

  • Or, you can roast the chiles on the grill, for 5-7 minutes per side.

Instructions 

  • If using the oven to roast, pre heat oven to 400 F/ 205 C.

  • Put chiles and corn on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with oil or broth and roast for 40 – 45 minutes until the skins are brown and popping. You can also roast the garlic here if you prefer a sweeter flavor.

  • Alternatively, you can roast the chiles on the grill outside, this takes less time (about 5-7 minutes per side). This will work for the corn too if it is on the cob. If not, just saute it in the pot with the other veggies.

  • When chile and corn are done roasting, put the chiles in a plastic bag or wrap in foil to steam. Then slice the kernels off of the cobs if you used cobs.

  • After about 5 minutes of steaming, carefully peel as much skin off the chilies as you can. It helps to do this under running water. You can see my post on roasting peppers for step by step directions.

  • Chop the chilies.

  • Saute the potatoes, onion, garlic and salt in a large pot over medium heat with oil or broth until the begin to get brown (about 5-7 minutes).

  • Add the roasted chile and corn. Saute a few more minutes.

  • Add lime juice and cilantro. Saute about 3-4 more minutes.

  • Add the veggie broth and simmer 5 more minutes.

  • If making the creamy version, add about 1 cup of the soup, cashews and extra broth in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Put back into the pot and mix well.

  • Serve with toppings of choice!

Notes

  • If you use frozen corn, add it to the soup with the roasted vegetables.
  • The cashews are optional for a creamy version.
  • If you are not using a high-speed blender you can either soak the cashews overnight, boil them for 30 minutes or grind them into a fine powder using a coffee grinder.
  • Adjust the amount of cashews for how creamy you prefer it.

Tips to prep ahead:

  • Chop all veggies. Roast the chiles and corn. Make the toppings.

Baby/kid food idea:

  • Pulse/blend roasted veggies. Older baby can also gum corn on the cob. If you use a non spicy pepper, you can add that too.
