The other night I got home from work and the thought crossed my mind that I have not produced an OG recipe in a while and then the wheels start churning. One of the things that I love to do when making and original is to look at all of the ingredients in my refrigerator and see the food that I have on hand and then create! It is really a fun thing for me to do, but sometimes I put a little bit of this, a little bit of that and a whole lot of this in it. haha. That is just how my mother would cook, but it does not serve those well who need exact measurements, like my daughters lol. Here’s to you girls—–
OG Peg’s Plant-Based Creamy Cauliflower Corn Chowder
Total Time to cook: 45 min
This recipe is comfort food at its finest. Even your carnivores will love it! I promise!
- 1/2 package Organic Felicetti Cavatappi Pasta, cooked al dente (see pic at bottom)
- 1 large onion
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 t. onion salt
- 2 t. garlic salt
- 1/2 t. pepper
- 1 t. salt
- 1/2 – 1 t. thyme
- 3 small or 2 large heads cauliflower, cut into medium pieces
- 5-6 c. vegetable broth (enough to cover the cauliflower about 1″ above)
- 2 14.5 cans Great Northern Beans
- 2 14.5 cans of corn
- 1 c. whole cashews (I like the organic Costco brand)
- 1 1/2 c. water
- 1 t. apple cider vinegar
- 1 t. lemon juice
- 3 T. nutritional yeast
Cook pasta. Make sure the water is well salted and boiling before adding the pasta. Cook 9 min. Drain and set aside.
While pasta is cooking cut onion, peel garlic and add to a wok if you have it, but if not just a frying pan. Add a little broth to the pan and saute until the garlic, onion, garlic salt, onion salt, salt and pepper and thyme until onion is translucent about 7-8 min.
Put cauliflower into a large soup pan with the broth and bring to a boil. Add corn and onion mixture and cook for about 10 minutes, checking after about 7 min after boiling to make sure the cauliflower is done to your liking.
While cauliflower is cooking make the cashew cream mixture in a high speed blender (I have a vitamix). Add remaining ingredients in blender and blend well, as in really well. You don’t want any chunks in your delicious soup.
Once cauliflower is done to your liking add the cashew cream and bring to a boil. Taste and adjust seasonings and enjoy.
This recipe may look hard but it really is simple and if you wash your dirty dishes as you go, it’s a cinch! Please tag me if you make this. I always love to know who has tried my recipes, especially my originals.
Love to all.
