Sweet Pepper Coconut Corn Chowder

My niece, Kelly went to Africa as a volunteer nurse. She quickly discovered that the local population did not have heart disease, diabetes, and cancer at the rates prevalent in our own country. It was during that time she decided to become a plant-based eater. She brought this recipe back and shared it with us and it has been a family favorite ever since. Every time I cook this recipe, I think of Kelly's passion to practice preventive medicine. She is a nurse practitioner today in Pennsylvania. Thank you, sweet Kelly!
