Healthy Vegetarian Corn Chowder

I have been craving all types of soups lately.  A favorite of both Scott and I’s is corn chowder.  When browsing around for recipes to test out, I didn’t find anything that sounded exactly right.

Taking a little bit of this ingredient and a little bit of that spice from all different chowders, I somehow concocted what turned out to be some of the best I’ve had.

The only way this would have tasted better is to have a little bit of diced bacon, but I decided to keep in vegetarian.  I made the lack of meat up with throwing in a ton of colorful, hearty vegetables into the mix.  I was pleasantly full after one serving and can’t wait for Scott to try it when he gets back in town tomorrow!
