This is a fairly straightforward chowder that can really satisfy. From Friendly Foods, pg 67.
- corn oil
- 2 cups chopped onions
- 2 cups peppers (red, green, orange)
- minced garlic
- 2 cups corn (fresh is nice, or frozen+steamed)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp pepper (white if possible)
- 2 tsp fresh chopped thyme
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- soup base (Vogue Vegy powder or bouillon cube)
- parsley for garnish
Steam the corn until mostly cooked, it should be soft and sweet (I used a nice steam appliance). Save a cup of liquid.
Saute the onion, pepper, and garlic for 5 minutes.
Add the spices while simmering for another 5 minutes, then a third of the corn.
Cook and blend the remaining corn with the reserved liquid. Blend to your liking – if you over-blend, you’ll lose that nice corn texture. Combine with the saute, and cook long enough just to heat it all up.
Serve with a bit of the parsley garnish! (which I forgot in the picture, doh) :>
