I recently had a baby (reason 1 why I have been so terrible and posting for the last year) and often need quick and yummy food. We are also gearing up for a winter storm here in Maine, which means I need something warm and comforting. This chowder fills all the need with its creamy, comforting, delicious, savoriness. It is what I crave when it is cold and rainy or snowy. It is also one of the easiest things to make. When I have 10 minutes and a crazy day I will throw this together in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. I don’t know how to describe this other than as a comfort food. You can feel yourself relaxing while eating a bowl, and warming from the inside out. I served this to a group of very non-vegan friends and they all loved it and asked for the recipe. No one could believe it was made without dairy. Score one for vegan chowder! I’m sorry for no picture. I blame the baby.
