Get Cozy With These Dairy-Free Chowder Recipes

Posted on February 25, 2016

Think you can’t have a creamy, comforting chowder without the cream? Think again. These dairy-free chowder recipes will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside – even while the temperature outside begins to drop.

Dairy-Free Squash & Corn Chowder

Chowder Recipe, from Delish Knowledge

This flavorful chowder gets its requisite creaminess from an unexpected place – a bit of flour is mixed into the vegetables while they cook, to coat them and help to create a thicker consistency. (Of course, use gluten-free flour to make this allergy-friendly.) Once the veggies are cooked, puree the mixture until smooth and top with sliced jalapeno peppers and award-winning Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds.

Roasted Wild Mushroom Chowder

Chowder Recipe, from Leafy Greens and Me

Full of meaty mushrooms and a great combination of seasonings, this interesting vegetable chowder is sure to satisfy. We love the assortment of fresh herbs (thyme, chives, garlic) and sauces (Worcestershire, hot sauce) thrown into the mix – as well as the fact that this soup gets its creaminess from a luscious, homemade cashew cream.

Crock Pot Southwestern Corn & Potato Chowder

Chowder Recipe, from Joyful Healthy Eats

Use up the rest of that seasonal corn and whip up this beautifully spiced chowder, bursting with the Southwestern flavors of chipotle, lime, cumin and cilantro. The addition of coconut milk makes this super creamy, and you can easily use your favorite meat-free bacon crumbles to make this an entirely plant-based meal.

Creamy Coconut Corn Chowder

Chowder Recipe, from Amuse Your Bouche

Perfect in its simplicity, this recipe has everything you look for in a creamy, cozy, slightly sweet corn chowder. The combination of coconut milk and corn is just delicious, and the handful of other ingredients (diced chilies, celery, fresh garlic and parsley) works to create a gourmet complexity.

Creamy Vegan Clam Chowder

If you’re craving a classic clam chowder but not the meat or dairy, this recipe’s for you – and before you let the long list of ingredients scare you, you should know that the results will be well worth it. Rich, creamy, briny, complex – this silky soup has it all, and it’s not as difficult to make as you might think. (No, not even the mushroom confit.)
