Sweetcorn and Potato Chowder with Skillet Corn Bread
It was the perfect cool autumn night for soup and bread. This soup is deliciously sweet and filling. Serves 3-4.
Sweetcorn & Potato Chowder
A recipe from my sweet friend, Denise
4 T olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 small potatoes, diced
2 celery sticks, sliced
2 1/2 cups veggie stock
1 1/4 cup milk (I used homemade almond milk...yummy!)
1 cup of frozen or canned corn
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil. Add onion, garlic, potato and celery. Cover and cook gently for 10 minutes. Add stock, season, and cook for 15 more minutes. Stir in milk and corn. Simmer for 5 minutes and serve.
Skillet Corn Bread
The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook (thanks Jackie for the great cookbook!)
1 1/2 cups cornmeal (I was pleased to get this for 75 cents a pound...organic!)
1 1/2 whole wheat pastry or bread flour
3 1/2 t baking powder
1 T honey or other sweetener
1 t salt
2 1/4 cups milk (I used almond)
1/4 cup oil
Heat over to 400 degrees. Put an oiled 10" cast iron skillet into the oven to heat. Mix the dry ingredients well, stir in the milk and oil. Pour mixture into hot skillet and bake for 30 minutes on the top shelf. Cut into wedges and serve hot from the oven...topped with honey, jam, or butter. Yum!
