Day 323.

Today turned into a clean out the crisper kind of day. Based on the CSA box carrots, bell pepper, potatoes and corn on the cob in the crisper, I decided to make a corn chowder. I’ve only had corn chowder a couple of times (primarily because the stuff in restaurants is almost always filled with chunks of ham or chicken broth), but I absolutely love it. Once I decided to make corn chowder, I sought out my happy slow cooker guide, Stephanie O’Dea’s Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook. She had a recipe for slow cooker corn chowder using frozen fire roasted corn (which sounds fantastic). I’ve loosely based this recipe off of a veganized version of Stephanie’s recipe. She’s my crockpot hero.

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder
Ingredients
Adapted from Slow Cooker Corn Chowder 

  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 medium carrots, diced (about 1.5 cups)
  • 2 ears corn, cut off cob (about 2 cups)
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 large potatoes (about 1 pound), diced
  • 4 cups Easy Slow Cooker Vegetable Broth
  • 2 cups soy milk or milk
  • croutons (optional)

Directions
Place a bit of olive oil in a 4-quart crock and swish it around. Add remaining ingredients, except milk and croutons, and cook on LOW for 8-9 hours. Blend the soup with an immersion blender. Add milk and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes. Stir, season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve. Top with croutons, if desired.

The Results
This was a delight. It’s incredibly light and simple and the taste of the fresh corn really shines.The adults added a dash of red pepper flakes to our soup, but the kids ate it as-is.

    What a perfect dish for a cold, fall evening. I love that it can be made in the slow cooker. I appreciate fix and forget meals…because I have a tendency to get caught up in things and forget. :) Thanks for sharing this with the Gallery.
