Creamy Roasted Corn Chowder

Posted by

I am so glad I am able to get this gorgeous soup recipe in before SoCal goes back to being it’s usual 80 degrees all day and night. The past few weeks have actually been cold which has got me craving a hot bowl of creamy soup!

The best thing about this recipe is that I can make it all year round. It would be so yummy served cold in the summer and it’s just so soothing when served hot for the cold nights we’ve been having this winter too.

The second best thing about this recipe is that it takes only 6 main ingredients (water and salt don’t count) and 1 pot! It is also totally versatile so you can easily make it your own based on your fridge capacity.

Ok, so if you’re ready, I’m ready… Let’s get soupy!

1 small onion (diced)

1 leek (cleaned well and chopped)

2 white sweet potatoes (regular russet potatoes will work just fine too)

2 cups low sodium veggie broth

4 cups water

2 cups frozen roasted corn (Trader Joes)

1/2 can coconut milk (the full fat kind)

A few pinches of sea salt, pepper, & cayenne pepper

A few sprigs of fresh thyme

2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive oil or coconut oil


 

1. In a large pot sautรฉ (diced) onions and (peeled & chopped) sweet potatoes until onions become translucent.

2. Add (chopped) leeks and stir well adding a few pinches of sea salt to draw out liquids. Stir well and let sautรฉ until leeks become translucent.

3. Add water and broth and bring to a boil. Stir well, bring to a simmer and put the lid on the pot. Cook until potatoes are fork tender.

4. Turn off heat, remove lid, and blend with an immersion blender until the soup is completely smooth.

5. Add roasted corn, fresh thyme, more salt, pepper & cayenne and stir well. Simmer for another 10 minutes.

6. Stir in half a can of coconut milk to get this soup extra creamy and rich!
Stir well, taste for seasoning, I added a bit more salt since I was just adding a tiny pinch at a time. It needed just another dash to balance out the sweetness.

That’s it! Enjoy it Veganly much!

P.S. A little nutritional yeast is always optional and would be just super in this soup. I’ll leave it up to you.


Serves 6 – 8
