Peel 15 potatoes, rinse, then place in a bowl with water and 1/2 tsp. of salt, then set aside. Place a large pot of water on the stove and bring to a boil. Finely cube the celery, garlic and onions. Then cube the potatoes. Place the potatoes into the pot and boil for 20 minutes. I use the Chop Wizard, it has two different sizes of blades.

Take a small sauté pan and place the butter into it. Cook on medium-high setting. Then, after butter starts to melt, add soy sauce, celery, and onions, until they are well-cooked and not crispy. Then add the garlic, do not cook any longer than 1 minute or it will loose all medicinal properties and just be a flavoring. Remove from heat. Pour the base into a large stock pot, add the sautéed mixture, the corn and the 2 C. of potatoes you set aside. Cook for 6-8 minutes on medium-high stirring continuously. Then remove from heat, pour into bowls and serve.

  • I agree 15 potatoes are a lot, especially when there isn't any size indicated. My thought is that the remaining potatoes, providing the amount is correct, and minus the 2 cups, are pureed or mashed, then combined with the soy milk to make the chowder base. Mashed or pureed potato is often used as a thickener in creamed soups and chowders, because on it own it does not mask the main ingredients. Corn is listed, just above the soy milk in the ingredients list. The directions for preparation cou

  • This is a very confusing recipe and I believe I will pass on trying it. I agree with all comments made so far.

  • I agree with the other two comments, also, what "base" are you referring to.

  • Very confusing recipe. 15 potatoes, 2 C of potatoes you set aside. When and does 15 potatoes make only 2 cups? I think the recipe needs to be redone.

  • This really sounds good but number of potatoes too vague because they vary so much in size; how about pounds? Completely lost me in the directions after the vegetable saute. Where are rest of directions?
