Check THIS soup out! It's Cheesy Taco Corn Chowder and it's VEGAN!
Before I get to the recipe I wanted to stick with the prompt for today and that is to FOCUS ON A NUTRIENT! Corn is high in Pantothenic Acid - also known as Vitamin B5 and this nutrient helps us USE fats, carbs, and proteins as energy sources. It also helps our hormones and immune systems function.
Corn is 12 % Pantothenic Acid. It's considered to be a GOOD source of the nutrient, however, the BEST natural source of the nutrient is Shittake Mushroom which have a whopping 52%.
Corn is also a good source of phosphorus, vitamin B3, B6, Manganese, and Fiber.
Here's my recipe for this super tasty soup!
Kernels from 4 ears of corn (or about 3 Cups)
Up to 2 C Water
About 3/4 C Cashews
1 to 2 Cloves Garlic
1 T Vegan Taco Seasoning (I used Wildtree Brand)
2 T Nutritional Yeast
Cilantro, Parsley, or Basil Leaves, Dried, to taste
Cayenne Pepper and/or a sprinkle of Taco Seasonsing & Nutritional Yeast to taste and on top
This was pretty amazing if I do say so myself!
