Corn Chowder

Updated: Jan 16, 2021

As mentioned on Day 56 of The Challenge

This is a classic comfort food. It is milky and creamy and lovely. It is never the same twice because I don't follow a recipe and there are occasional tweaks to it. It works as a vegetarian soup but also with bacon bits. It can be cheesy, or you can add celery for extra crunch. In any case, I always find it very satisfying and comforting.


1.5 l milk (I use whole fat, but feel free to use skimmed or semi-skimmed if necessary, it's your sad sad life)

2-3 tbsp butter

Approx 800 g of corn

2 potatoes, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 sprig of fresh thyme

Salt and pepper to taste

1) Melt butter in the bottom of a soup pot and sauté onions until translucent. Add potatoes and cook for a few minutes.

2) Add other ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

3) Enjoy!

Tweak this to your tastes and enjoy. Not hard to make, and so satisfying.
