Vegetable & Corn Chowder

Posted by kathleenerindavis on February 28, 2009

Making soup has always seemed rather daunting to me, and I’m not exactly sure why. But a few of my friends have been making soup this winter, so I followed a recipe from my favorite cookbook (a giant phonebook-like Vegetarian cookbook I found on the street) It turned out really well. Here’s the recipe:

1tbsp veg oil
1 red onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 large potato, diced
2 tbsp flour
2.5 cups milk
1 1/4 cups veg stock
1 3/4 oz broccoli florets
3 cups canned corn, drained
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper
1 tbsp shopped cilantro to garnish

1) heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, and potato and saute over a low heat, stirring frequently, for 2-3 mins.
2)Stir in the flour and cook, stirring for 30 secs, Gradually stir in the milk and stock.
3)Add the broccoli and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 mins.
4) stir in the cheese and season.

(I started a thing in this cookbook where I give the recipes a star rating, based both on taste and ease of cooking. Out of a possible 5 stars, this got a 4)

OK, so I’ve cooked many meals in the 7 months since I last posted. But I have plans to make it up and post at least two recipes this weekend. In the meantime, here’s a great comic I found today. This is where it’s from.
