Recipe: Vegan Corn Chowder

Today is a typical cold and blustery day here in Chicago. The recipe we are sharing with you would make a great meatless menu option for days just like today. This recipe comes from one of the few Chicago vegetarian/vegan food trucks, Ste Martaen. They offer their customers a gourmet vegan cheese alternative along with other menu items.

  • 1/2 stick of vegan margarine
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4-5 small red potatoes, cubed
  • 3 thyme sprigs 2 teaspoons of salt or more to taste

  • 6 cups of corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup of MimicCreme

Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
