Vegan Seafood Chowder???

So yesterday was Sunday again and like I said last week I am going to try and make a soup every Sunday because it reminds me of home. I was thinking this one up all week. I am not sure where the idea came from but what a great idea it was. I just finished a bowl since there was leftovers. I was dreaming about it all day. It was just as good as last night if not better. Well here is my recipe for a vegan seafood chowder. I hope you enjoy it as much as Jimmy and I did :)

Vegan Seafood Chowder
2 small onions chopped                                                12 shrimp chopped
1 shallot chopped                                                            imitation crap 
3 stalks celery chopped                                                 4 cups vegetable broth
about 10 small carrots chopped                                  6 tablespoons olive oil
5 cloves garlic                                                                   2 tablespoons non dairy butter
2 can corn                                                                          4 cups unsweetened almond milk
5 table spoons corn starch                                           2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons flour                                                          salt/pepper

1. In a large pot combine celery, onions. shallot, carrots and garlic with olive oil and butter. After the onions reach a clear consistency add in the corn as well. Mix for about 10 minutes or so. 
2. Add in shrimp and crab with vegetable broth. Let boil for about 30 minutes.
3. Add almond milk and nutritional yeast. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for about 15 minutes.
4. Add cornstarch according to directions. (you usually have to mix with water) Bring to a boil again and then reduce heat.
5. If needed add the flour. You may not need it if the soup has reached the consistency  you want already. 
6. Add salt and pepper to taste. 

                   Once the soup has reached the thickness you desire serve hot! 
Deliciousness :)
