- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 4 cups (875 mls) vegetable broth

Add the vegetable broth into the Instant Pot Insert followed by the sweetcorn kernels, green onions, sweet potatoes, garlic puree, smoked paprika and salt.
Cover the Instant Pot and set the valve to seal, select the manual/pressure cook function at high pressure, and set the timer for 10 minutes.
When done do a QPR (quick pressure release) and let the chowder cool for a few mins, before transferring half into a blender and blending until smooth.

Then in the garlic puree and smoked paprika and cook for 30 secs until fragrant.
Mix in the vegetable broth, bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 mins or until the sweet potato is tender.
Stir in the sweetcorn kernels and spring onions, bring to the boil and simmer for 2 mins.
Switch off the heat and mix in the milk.

- 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
