Corn Chowder

I made this easy soup this evening to pair it up with light sandwich for dinner . Since we live in Texas now , it seems like corn is available any time of the year , fresh corn is the one i am talking about . This corn chowder is so easy and quick to make , next time i am thinking to add some lobster or crab meat in there . Would be even better !! But if you don’t have the lobster , just plain corn chowder will still work really good !!

You need :

2 tbsp. of olive oil

1 medium onion , diced

4 garlic cloves , minced

1/4 cup of all purpose flour

4 cups of vegetable stock

2 cups of seafood stock ( if you use lobster ) or just 2 cups of chicken stock

2 idaho potatoes , diced

2 cups of heavy cream

6 ears of corn

bunch of parsley

salt and pepper

In a pot , heat the olive oil , add onion and garlic , cook about 8 minutes on medium heat , then add flour , mix well , cook for a minute . Then add the vegetable and seafood stock a little bit at a time , while stirring with a whisk , to prevent lumps . Bring to a boil , then add heavy cream and potatoes , boil hard for 10 minutes until potatoes are done . Then add the corn , simmer on low for 15 minutes until the corn is done . Season to taste with salt and pepper . Serve in a bowl , sprinkle with parsley on top .
