225g frozen mixed vegetables, 2 cups of frozen sweet corn, 2tbsp of corn flour, 2 1/2 cups rice milk, 280g potato, diced, 1 bell pepper, chopped, a little mild curry powder, salt and pepper to taste, any herbs in the quantity you like;

-Corn Bread (4 serving)

Ingredients:

1/4 c yellow cornmeal, 1/2 c self-raising wholemeal flour, 1tbsp nutritional yeast flakes, 1tsp baking powder, 1 c soymilk, 1tbsp vinegar,

 Method:

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix the cornmeal, flour, nutritional yeast, and baking soda in a medium bowl. In a large measuring cup, mix together the soymilk and lemon juice – it will curdle slightly and look like buttermilk. Stir the soymilk into the dry ingredients, and mix briefly with a fork – a few lumps are fine.

Pour the batter into silicone muffin forms, and bake for about 30 minutes or until they test done in the centre.

Well, I really enjoyed the chowder and especially the corn bread. I have been a little bit hungry and ended having an apple and a banana.
