November 30 Corn Chowder

Another fun recipe from Stephanie O'Dea. This one is from the website and not the book. I find that when I want to try a new recipe I usually open a cookbook and page through it while I am watching a movie or before bed. To broaden our horizons I am trying to remember about the wealth of information available on the Internet!

  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 peeled and chopped carrot
  • 1 (16-oz) bags of frozen corn
  • 2 medium potatoes
Finely chop the onion and brown it in a bit of olive oil. Chop the carrots and red pepper. Wash and coarsely chop the potatoes. Dump all the veggies in the crock; add the bags of corn. Pour the chicken broth on top. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Use a hand blender to chowderify. If you do not have an immersion blender then carefully transfer contents to a blender or food processor and process until desired consistency.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Help measure and add ingredients
  2. Cover crock and turn on
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Chop veggies (Audrey was too busy to help)
  3. Assist Audrey

This was a very tasty meal. You could swap ingredients if you like green peppers instead of red or turnips instead of potatoes. We used pre-shredded carrots because I had some on hand for snack for the girls. Also, right before I served chowder Audrey added a few kernels of frozen corn to cool it off. They looked pretty as well.
