Once I started to give up dairy products I knew I'd miss having a great chowder. However, we had the priviledge to meet Chef Salua from the American Samoa Islands. He gave us a recipe book and taught us how easy it is to cook vegan foods. We will be eternily greatful for his lessons and kindness.

This recipe comes from that book Simply Vegan by Debra Wasserman. This recipe is so easy that even I can do it without the assistance of my wife. Just saute onion in oil over medium-high heat until soft. Add water, celery, and carrots. Cook 10 minutes. Add creamed corn, soymilk, potato, and spices. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes and serve hot.
