Today, I chose a recipe from a book written by Barbara Swell and it is called “Secrets of the Great Old-Timey Cooks”. most of the recipes are from the mid 1800s to early 1900s. My choice was Old Fashioned Corn Chowder. Here is my version, gluten free, fat free and Vegan. It takes 5 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook.
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 large Russett potato, peeled and cubed
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and diced
3 cups water
2 cups sweet corn (1 can 15 oz.)
1 cup cashew cream (3/4 raw cashews soaked for at least 1 hour and ¼ cup water blended)
salt and black pepper to taste
In a large pot, add the chopped onions, garlic, sweet potato and regular potato with the water and bring to boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Add the corn and the cashew cream and stir well. Let it warm up for 2-3 minutes and your chowder is ready.
