Vegan Thanksgiving Recipe #10: Quinoa Corn Chowder

SavvyVegetarian is another wonderful resource for creative, healthy, and meatless recipes.  I wanted to add a hearty soup or stew with our Thanksgiving meal for some added veggies in a different form.  I originally wanted to come up with my own Quinoa Lentil soup but while surfing their site, I found a Quinoa Corn Chowder recipe that I couldn't resist.  Go here for the original recipe.
