Vegan Corn Chowder – Meatless Monday

This weather! Rain, rain and more rain! If this is the start to winter, I’m not sure I’m looking forward to it anymore. Everything is damp, laundry is taking forever to dry, everything smells musty. At least it’s not cold… Yet!
Last week, I made this super hearty soup with a heap of leftover corn on the cob that I completely spaced serving at our latest family cook-off. Yeah. It happens. Nobody went home hungry. The corn was not missed. So score for us!
