Notes

Instant Pot Sweet Corn Chowder Tips

  • Fresh sweet corn tastes sooo good in this, but defrosted frozen sweetcorn kernels will work too.
  • If not vegetarian you can use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth.
  • Adaptable. You can use other plant-based milks. If not vegan then use regular milk instead in the recipe.
  • Cook time does not include time for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure, or for the pressure to release.
  • For a thinner soup add an extra 1/2 - 1 cup of broth.
  • For a richer soup use heavy plant cream instead of plant-based milk
