Creamy Summer Corn and Potato Chowder

So summer might be over, but I’m still trying to hold on to all the fresh fruit and vegetables that are available. There’s nothing like fresh veggies straight from the garden. I guess we could always move to somewhere warm year around, but I like having different seasons too much!

I made this soup with the last bit of fresh corn I had. It was really good and filling. The best part, its dairy free so I was able to enjoy it without any regrets! The original recipe was made using a Vitamix but since I don’t have one, I made it on the stove in a Dutch oven with no issues. You can also reduce the amount of corn if you don’t want as much corn kernels in the soup.

Creamy Corn & Potato Chowder | Join Us, Pull up a Chair

1 Tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup chopped yellow onion
6 ears of fresh corn, kernels removed
3 small yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed clean and cubed
2-4 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup reduced-fat milk (I used almond milk)
1/3 cup silken tofu
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
chopped flat-leaf parsley

In a heavy-bottom sauce pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add in the chopped onion and saute for 5 minutes or until the onion becomes soft. Add in half of the corn kernels, potato cubes and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, approximately 15 minutes.

Add in the milk and tofu to the soup. Puree with a hand blender until soup is creamy. Add in the remaining corn and season with salt and pepper. Simmer until the corn is cooked through. Serve and garnish with chopped parsley.
