Sweetcorn Chowder with Tasty Veggie Bread – yum!

Want to add more vegetables into your diet? Me too! A chowder is a thick soup, usually containing seafood or corn. This particular sweetcorn chowder makes a very tasty, winter-warming dish.

In his book, The 4 Pillar Plan,  Dr. Rangan Chatterjee talks about aiming to eat a rainbow of vegetables every day. It’s a fun challenge to help you focus on eating a range of vegetables. Without it, I’m inclined to stick to the same old few. 

This sweetcorn chowder has plenty of white, red, yellow and green veggies. So, if you eat it for lunch today, you’ll already be halfway through your rainbow.

  • 1 leek 
  • 1 medium-sized red kumara 
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 can Watties creamed corn
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 cups Campbells Vegetable Stock
  • Parsley
  • Cheese

Wash the kumara and grate it with the skin on.

Finely slice the leek.

Melt the butter in a large microwave bowl. Add the leek and kumara and microwave on high, covered, for 8 minutes.

Mix the rice flour into the cooked vegetables.

Add the canned corn and vegetable stock. 

Microwave again for 10 minutes.

Add salt, chopped parsley and a little cheese to suit your taste.

Serve with Home-made bread, Cheese Scones or slices of Tasty Veggie Bread
