1 avocado, peeled and chopped
2 shallots, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp lime juice
Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Cook the corn kernels, leek and potato, covered, for 10 minutes.
Add the garlic and half the paprika for a minute to release the fragrance
Add the stock and the water and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
Remove from the heat and stand for 10 minutes.
Place 500 mls of the chowder in a blender and blend for 2 minutes.
Return to the pan. Stir in the soy milk. Heat until hot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Warm the bread baps in the oven.
Serve in 4 warm bowls. Sprinkle with the remaining paprika. Top with the avocado salsa and chopped parsley. Serve with a slice of lime and warm bread baps.
Leftover chowder can be frozen but reheat in a pan not the microwave.
