what i am eating #9

I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food!  If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below.  All you have to do is link back to this blog post from your blog.  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!


This is my first soup of the season.  I have been looking forward to soup for the past few weeks since it has cooled off considerably.  However, the kids and I being sick the past couple weeks really pushed my need for soup to the forefront of my mind.  The soup I made is my take on corn chowder.  I feel like it is probably a lot healthier.  It doesn't have bacon, and there is just a dash of milk added when you serve it at the end - if you want.

Corn Chowder

6 cups vegetable stock
4 medium potatoes, diced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 lb sweet corn, fresh or frozen
salt and pepper to taste
cream if desired

Saute onion in a little extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper until they start to become translucent, add corn and cook for a couple minutes.  Add vegetable stock and potatoes.  Cook until potatoes are tender.  Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.  When serving put a teaspoon of cream or milk in and stir.  Mine is obviously with my trademark red pepper flakes!

This is a super simple soup meal, and it can be completely vegan by omitting the cream.  It is a delicious filling soup too.  Serve with some biscuits, and it will warm you up on a cold fall day.

What are you cooking up this week?  Please leave a link below!

  2. Sounds great. I made split pea soup last week - it's one of my favs.

    1. You know, I have never tried split pea soup. I think that it always scared me being green, and the texture. But, since we have moved so much closer to a bean based diet, I might need to try it! Do you have a recipe you can share?

    I love cooking too. I don't understand when people hate it.
