Lazy Potato Chowder

Potato Chowder
This recipe is quick, easy, and healthy; it only takes about 10 minutes. Did I mention it was tasty? We never have any leftovers. My wife says it is “hearty and hits the spot.” I agree. It goes well with some fresh bread. I used the vita-mix to make this, but you could also make it with a regular blender and the stove.

To reduce the fat you can omit the earth balance. I adapted this recipe from an original that had called for cream instead of soy milk and chicken broth instead of the vegetable bouillon. I also added the carrots for extra color, texture, and nutrition.

  • into the vita-mix add:
    • 1 cup dried hashbrown potatoes
    • 1 cube of Rapunzel vegan veggie broth
    • 1 1/2 cup water
    • 1 cup soy milk
    • 2 tablespoons earth balance vegan butter
    • 1 tsp. onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp. oregano
    • 4-5 baby carrots
  • blend on high until steaming (5-7 minutes) then stop
  • while vita-mix is cooking, cook remaining carrots
    • 10 baby carrots
    • cook in microwave for 1-2 minutes
  • while vita-mix is cooking, rehydrate remaining hashbrown
    • 1/2 of dried hashbrown potato
    • 1 cup water
    • microwave for 1 minute
    • into the stopped vita-mix add:
      • drained potatoes
      • cooked baby carrots
      • 1/4-1/3 cup spinach
    • blend on variable 3 for about 15-30 seconds or until carrots are hashbrown sized
    Makes about 4 cups or two servings.
