Creamy vegan chowder, made vegetarian and clam-free with some sneaky protein ingredients. And, made dairy-free with my famous creamy soup base. Bonus… this vegan clam chowder is totally mushroom-free.
My qualifications for presenting you with this fabulous vegan chowder recipe are that: 1) I live in one of the seafood capitals of the country, and 2) one time my parents took me on a trip to New England when I was a kid and apparently all I ate the entire time was clam chowder. Yup, former favorite food.
Was it the clam part that I liked! NO! I like the super creamy, savory broth, thickened by a seriously over-the-top roux and practically begging for broken-up saltine crackers. Turns out, all of the things I liked about the original are easy to make in meatless, dairy-free form AND healthier! Easy decision.
