Pumpkin Corn Chowder

Recommended Posts

Pumpkin Corn Chowder

 

This creamy, satisfying soup has everything we need to warm us up on a chilly autumn night. Chowders have been a favorite New England one-pot supper for hundreds of years, but this is a chowder with a difference: here, beta-carotene-rich pumpkin and sweet potato replace the usual white potato, combining with corn, onion, and cream (vegans may substitute soy or rice milk, or nut butter) to make a wonderful bowl of real, deep nourishment.

 

1 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, peeled and chopped

2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced

10 oz peeled sweet potato, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

6 cups vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup corn, frozen or cut from the cob

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoons crumbled dried sage

1/2 cup half-and-half (you could use ff evap or ff milk or soy to make this Core)

Salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste

 

Heat butter or olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and sweet potato. Sauté, stirring to coat the vegetables with the butter, until onion is translucent, just a few minutes.

 

Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, 30 minutes, until sweet potato is tender.

 

Add pumpkin puree, corn, and herbs. Bring back to a boil, then reduce heat again and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in cream and remove soup from the heat.

 

Purée half the soup in a blender and return it to the pot, stirring well to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

 

Serves 6 @ 2 points each or 4 @ 3 points each

P-Mad, your spice preference is about the same as mine. I suspect I will like this, and I intend to make it this week. Thanks.
