  • instant pot


  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (avocado oil based)
  • 1 cup chopped onion (white/yellow)
  • 1 tbsp dried/fresh crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 4 Yukon/gold potatoes (peeled and chopped)
  • 1/4 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery stalk
  • 2 cups frozen sweet corn
  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp raw cashew nuts blended in 3 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk
  • Salt as per taste
  • Crushed black pepper as per taste
  • 2-3 tbsp chopped fresh/dried chives (to garnish)


  • Turn on 6-quart instant pot on saute mode and
    melt vegan butter in it.
  • A soon as the butter starts to melt, add onions, garlic and thyme. Saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • Toss in chopped potatoes and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Saute in rest of the vegetables (carrots, celery and corn).
  • Add chickpea flour and mix very well until all the ingredients are well blended.
  • Pour the vegetable broth and close the lid of the instant pot. Seal the valve and change it to chili/beans mode (default setting). Let it pressure cook.
  • Once it is done release the pressure and turn it off off. Open the lid.
  • Stir in cashew cream, salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with chives and serve immediately.


  • This recipe can be refrigerated for about a week in an air tight container. Warm it up thoroughly for best results. 
  • This recipe can also be made in stock pot/dutch oven/saucepan. Just cook until all the vegetables are soft (especially potatoes). Turn off the flame when stirring in cashew cream and seasonings. 
  • This chowder pairs well with bread and salad. I have provided the links in the post above.
