Recipe Directions

  • 1. Remove corn husks from cob. Slice the kernels off the cob by holding the corn cob vertically and carefully slicing down toward your cutting board.
  • 2. Add all ingredients (except the second amount of corn) into your blender. Blend on high until very smooth and well-blended. Blend for longer than you would blend a smoothie, because you want the soup to be warm when coming out of the blender.
  • 3. Pour chowder into a bowl. Add remaining corn and stir with a spoon. Garnish with pepper and chopped cilantro (optional).
  • 4. Enjoy chowder immediately, while still warm from the blender.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Try this satisfying vegan chowder when you want the creamy, comforting feeling of a bowl of thick warm soup.

If using fresh corn for this recipe, you’ll need at least three or four corn cobs on hand. (If you can’t get fresh corn, use well-drained, unsweetened canned corn.  (If using canned corn, rinse and drain corn kernels. Pat dry with a clean tea towel.) But it’s fresher and sweeter to use fresh, uncooked corn sliced straight off the cob.

Flavor tip: I normally add fresh garlic to my raw soup recipes and you may be tempted to do the same. However, avoid adding garlic because the flavors don’t go well with the sweetness of the corn.

This recipe makes enough for one large bowl for one person or two small appetizer cups.

Thought it would turn out brilliantly as I love corn and raw corn however this soup didn't rate well with me or my husband, which really surprised me as the celery version is so delicious!!! I don't know what we did wrong? I had a starchy weird not so tasty rawness flavour to it.

Hi Angela, Interesting! I've made this with walnuts instead of cashews which might give it a heartier flavor? Something to try next time :)

I made it exactly as the recipe states. Very good! I'm not a fan of cilantro but I liked it in this soup. (Thanks for the tip on rinsing the fresh corn! It would not have been as good if I skipped that step)

I am trying to include more raw foods in our diet and I am ever on the hunt for raw recipes. I tried this last evening. I don't why it tasted really bitter. I wish someone could tell me what I did wrong.

Maybe...but when I ate just the corn it was so delicious. I thought the soup would turn out good...I will try to find an other way because we love corn.

FYI, if you don't add the cashews then don't add the water, it becomes... too watery and the garlic and onion (should you choose to use them) become overwhelming.

In other words, I was so happy about this recipe that I made another batch and added water and didn't like it :(

Raw corn chowder, amazing.

Hi! Imade this (not raw) with defrosted frozen corn kernels, since it is the middle of the winter here, and doubled the recipe. Absolutely fantastic! Will make it many more times. Fabulous. Thanks!
