what i am eating #9
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.
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.

I love cooking too. I don't understand when people hate it.
Sounds great. I made split pea soup last week – it's one of my favs.
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?
Yum! Looks great and so simple! Made some last night, it was a hit!!
