Make it at Home: Corn Chowder

 

Ingredients

Corn

Soup
  • 8 oz bacon , chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter (use 3 tbsp if bacon is lean)
  • garlic clove , minced
  • small onion , diced 
  • tbsp flour
  • cups chicken broth 
  • cups coconut milk

  • 3/4 cup shallots / scallions , green part finely sliced
  • Salt and finely ground pepper to taste

  • Cut the corn off the cob. Keep naked cobs.
  • Place 1 tsp butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove onto a paper towel lined plate. Leave fat in pot.
  • Lower heat to medium high. Add 2 tbsp butter, once melted, add garlic and onion. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes until onion is translucent.
  • Add flour and mix it in to make your roux - this will thicken your soup. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

  • Remove lid, remove corn cobs. Add corn and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked to your taste.
