Recently when I got groceries they had fresh corn on the cob on sale – so I bought a few and knew this was the recipe I would make! I’ve been eyeing it on Pinterest for a while now.. And it was completely delicious. Please excuse my awful pictures, I haven’t had a chance yet to put up my sister’s light set up that she’s letting me borrow… Maybe one day. The fresh corn is really what makes this chowder over the top – so use it at all costs if available, if not frozen is the next best option. This recipe also has potatoes in it, which gives it a nice texture difference and makes it more filling since it’s a meatless soup. It’s a very simple and easy to follow recipe, and it is SO hearty and delicious! I’ve been trying to make one soup a week since we’ve moved in, and I have loved all the recipes I’ve tried so far! Before I didn’t have a soup pot that would work with my cook top, but now that isn’t an issue!! So thankful for God’s provision. Give it a try, everyone at your table is sure to love it! 🙂
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 large onion, diced
- 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour
- 3 cups of vegetable stock
- 1 and 1/2 cups milk
- 2 medium to large potatoes, diced into bite sized pieces
- 2 cups fresh corn
- salt and pepper
- Heat the butter and oil in a large pot. Saute the onion over medium high heat for about 7 minutes, before adding the flour.
- Stir vigorously so that the flour cooks, but doesn’t brown, for about 4 minutes. Begin adding the stock a little at a time, while continuing to stir until all the liquid has been added.
- Add the milk and stir well. Next, add the diced potatoes and 1 teaspoon of salt, and allow to simmer for about 8 minutes, stirring often, before adding the corn.
- Simmer for an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.
- Taste, adding salt if necessary and some black pepper. Serve immediately!
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God,
who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:55-57
