Crazy Good Corn Chowder

Serves 6

1 T olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 zucchini, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and thinly sliced (optional)
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 cups vegetable broth
3 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (from about 5 ears of corn)
2 medium-size russet potatoes, sliced into 1⁄2-inch chunks
1 bay leaf
Pinch of cayenne pepper


1. Heat a large pot over medium heat, sauté onion, zucchini, carrots, and the jalapeño in olive oil with a pinch of salt until onion is translucent. Add rosemary, thyme, pepper and salt; sauté for 1 minute more.

2. Add broth, corn, potatoes, bay leaf, and cayenne. Cover and bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Uncover and simmer for 10 minutes more to let the liquid reduce a bit.

3. Remove bay leaf and purée half of the chowder with an immersion blender or by transferring half of the chowder to a blender, puréeing until smooth and adding back to soup. Garnish with cayenne or more black pepper. Enjoy!


I highly recommend a visit to your local farmers market for some fresh summer corn to use in this chowder.  I always buy more than we can possibly eat, so I make this recipe or these Tasty Taquitos.  You might also like to add corn to this Tex-Mex Spaghetti Squash.

If you want to know how I lost 125 lbs, check out my book and thanks for trying the recipe.  Let me know what you think.
