Divine Corn Chowder

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) :>
