Corn Chowder is one of my favorites!!  I found this recipe on Pinterest and quickly went to work on how I could adapt it to make it gluten & dairy free! I must say it turned out soooo good!! 

What you will need: 
  • 4 cans of whole kernel corn
  • 3 can of diced potatoes (or a bag of Golden Round potatoes cut into quarters)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Earth Balance Vegan & Soy Free Buttery Spread
  •  1/4 cup gluten free flour
  •  2 drops of Thyme Vitality Essential Oil
  • 1 Cup of Dairy Free Half and Half ( you can make your own by adding one part Almond Milk Creamer or Coconut Cream to one part Diary free milk)
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1Tbsp Honey
  • 5 slices of gluten free/nitrate free bacon, cut into pieces
  • 2-3 Tbsp chopped chives
What do to: 
  1. Add Earth Balance Buttery Spread to pot and cook onions and bacon until they turn brown.
  2. Next add the garlic and let it brown. 
  3. Add gluten free flour a little at a time. ( If the flour starts to clump you can start switching back and forth- adding a little water and adding a little flour)
  4. Add the 5 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  5.  Add in all the other ingredients expect for the chopped chives
  6. Turn down and let simmer. ( The directions say simmer for 20 minutes. I put this on the stove on a Sunday Morning and let it simmer while we were at church. It was probably 2 hours and it turned out fine)
  7. Once it is done cooking, transfer 2 1/2 cups of chowder to a blender and blend until smooth
  8.  Pour back into pot and stir together
  9. Serve with diary free cheese, chives, diary free sour cream or more bacon! Enjoy!
I used Thyme Vitality Essential Oil to season this chowder, but not all oils are created equally and not all are safe to ingest!
