Grilled Corn Chowder. It is still winter in most of the country, so the day is perfect for a hot bowl of corn chowder. Grilling the corn, garlic and pepper before making the chowder will give you a delicious flavor that is so different from other corn chowder that you have tasted. The potatoes make the chowder thick, creamy and hearty, and will fill you up completely. This soup is vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
