This corn soup is creamy, comforting and full of flavour. It has everything you'd want in a corn chowder and then some. Nothing fancy, just tasty homestyle comfort food at its best!

You'll love the rich and creamy texture paired with the delicious earthiness of the sauteed mushrooms in thyme. This soup and this is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Serve it as an appetizer or enjoy a big bowl as a full meat-free meal with some fresh crusty bread for dipping.

Even though corn is typically a summer vegetable, this is the perfect soup to make in the fall/winter as you can make it with frozen corn which is affordable and easy to find!
