Sweet Corn Chowder

May 2, 2008 at 7:08 am 7 comments

This is a delicious raw soup from Ani Phyo’s cookbook, Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen. I absolutely love sweet corn…being that I grew up in Iowa, that is practically a requirement 🙂 This recipe has the perfect blend of flavors…and you can go wild with toppings!  I like to add tomatoes, seeds, nuts, etc. to make it chunkier.
I also like to cut back on the olive oil a bit…and add a little more water. You can also blend the avocado into the soup for a creamier base. Enjoy!

Sweet Corn Chowder
Makes 2 large bowls or 4 small bowls.

Chowder Base:
3 ears sweet corn, cut off the cob

    I just discovered this recipe the other day, SOO GOOD!

    I’m totally in love with sweet corn as well (what part of Iowa are you from? Most of my childhood was spent in Wisconsin, but I lived in Grinnell for a short time as well…. working in the corn fields at 10 or 11, hahaa).

    I sed to love to eat this, thanks for reviving it for. I got a similar recipe from a 5 star restaurant (where I could not afford to eat but I knew the chef)

    She showed me a great trick for the ” presentation.” She was a very amiable chef and would often present her dishes to the guest at the resort where the restaurant was located.

    She would put all the raw corn kernels to cover the bottom of a big soup bowl and then bring them to the table to place in front of the one who ordered the corn chowder.

    After the “is this all there is? Where’s the chowder?” pause and glance form the customer in her other hand (behind her back) she would have a lovely sterling decanter to pour the white creamy chowder from and would commence to top the raw ingredients with the lovely base …

    It always is a treat.thanks for reminding me.
    I will have make some for the family after a run to the farmers market this week.

    Hi Sara, I want to make this and am wondering what measurement the olive oil is. It says “3/4 olive oil”. Cup? Tablespoon? Thanks!!

    It actually is 3/4 cup…I usually try to cut it back and add more water though because it’s so rich. 🙂

    That was soooo good. I put about 4/6 cup olive oil into mine to cut back a bit, and I added the avocado and the cilantro into the soup, since I loooove cilantro. YUM.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
