1 tsp salt
1 cup silk creamer
1/2 cup fresh chopped basil

saute onion and celery in a bit of earth balance or olive oil. add broth, potatoes, corn, thyme, bay leaf, & salt. simmer, covered, approximately 20 minutes or until tender.

discard bay leaf and transfer 2 cups of solid with a slotted spoon to blender. add creamer to blender and puree mixture.

add puree and basil to chowder and heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through. season with salt and pepper, and serve.
