I love corn. Corn-on-the-Cob, Creamed Corn, Kernel Corn, Cornbread. You name it, I love it. I used to eat kernel corn right out of the can…
Grilled or Roasted Corn can make a person go crazy! Have you ever been to a theme park or the fair and you smell Roasted Corn-on-the-Cob? You don’t know where it is coming from but you want it, right then, that minute. I have left ride lines that I had been standing in for an hour just to follow that sweet roasted corn scent…Yes, I love to eat food.
Because of my love for corn I made this Roasted Corn Chowder. My DH also loves corn and devoured this soup! Another bonus is that it is a Vegan Recipe and qualifies for my sixth food blog event. Tinned Tomatoes “No Croutons Required” theme for this month is: Grill or Roast (vegetarian soup or salad). I roasted the corn for this chowder recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
Delicious Rating: Most soups or chowders are very simple delicious easy recipes but still I have found that some beginners find it a bit complicated so I rated it for the home cook. The soup was good. The next day it was better. I would make it again for my DH seeing that he enjoyed it so much. For me there is something missing. I don’t know if it is the absence of actual dairy but something just wasn’t there. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good corn chowder and very hearty as well. Just not what I was expecting? Let me know your thoughts and suggestions please!
