  • Combine corn kernels and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a baking dish; stir to coat corn kernels in oil.

  • Roast corn in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, carrot, celery, and garlic in the olive oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir chicken broth, roasted corn, potatoes, light cream, cream-style corn, parsley, salt, and pepper into the vegetable mixture; bring to a boil.

  • Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat; stir flour into melted butter and whisk until a paste forms and begins to thin, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir roux into the chowder; continue cooking until chowder is thickened, about 30 minutes.

This soup was awesome! The only changes I made was to use regular potatoes instead of red potatoes and 1/2 & 1/2 instead of light cream. It was plenty rich. I will definitely make this again!!! Read More

Very sweet and yummy! My five year old gave it 2 thumbs up and eight year old gobbled it right down. I think next time I will add red bell peppers. Read More

It's summer, and I'm heading into my soup and salad/half-sandwich mode. Cook early in the day, maybe grill in the evening, and don't heat up the kitchen for dinner. Followed this recipe to the letter and garnished with a couple roasted red pepper strips and chopped parsley. Roasting the fresh corn really brings out its sweetness and adds great flavor to this chowder...pls. don't skip this step. Excellent, wouldn't change a thing. Read More

To skip having to make the roux I started with 4 T of butter to saute the onions celery and garlic and added half a poblano pepper. Then added the 3 T of flour before adding the other ingredients. Delicious and with less cream would be just as good. Read More

It was really good! I used coconut cream though because i'm vegan. I also made the cream of corn myself by simply putting in in the blender. No salt used just my usual bragg's aminos nutritional yeast and other spices for flavor. Turned out really good! Added crab sticks too. Next time blend everything BEFORE adding potatoes and half crab sticks and some corn and some carrots...? make it chunky! Read More

This has been may go to chowder for awhile now. To make it vegan (and bc I don t ever have cream on hand) I add 2 cups cashew cream to it instead (1 cup of raw cashews boiled for 15 min or so or soaked overnight then blended in a high speed blender with 1 cup water). Super rich and creamy and yummy! Read More

Next time want to make thicker (more flour or add corn starch). Add bell pepper and something like hot sauce for a zing! Read More

A nice thick corn chowder that satisfies every sense. It's perfect for a cold winter's day or a cool fall evening. I highly recommend this recipe. The only thing I did differently was to add more corn.;) Read More
