A Creamy Delight: Sweetcorn and Red Pepper Chowder

Are you craving a hearty and healthy soup that will transport you to a Parisian restaurant? Look no further than this sweetcorn and red pepper chowder! With its creamy texture, smoked paprika, and homemade corn stock, this chowder is a vegetarian delight that will satisfy even the most discerning palates.

What Can I Create with Fresh Corn on the Cob?

Finding fresh corn on the cob can be a challenge, but when you do stumble upon it, it’s a true treasure. Say goodbye to prepackaged corn wilting under cellophane in the supermarket and embrace the vibrant flavors of summer. While autumn may be upon us, this chowder allows us to hold on to the last vestiges of French summertime.

Serving Corn Chowder the Restaurant Way

Picture this: you’re in the picturesque wine town of Franschhoek in South Africa, celebrating a special occasion at the renowned Grande Provence wine estate. A creamy sweetcorn chowder is elegantly poured at your table from a white porcelain milk jug into an oversized bowl, forming a moat around a mound of turnip puree. Crowned with a colossal tempura prawn and adorned with other delectable garnishes, this soup is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.

Now, you can recreate that magic at home. While you might not have all the fancy frills, this velvety velouté soup makes for a delightful starter that is sure to impress your dinner guests.

Corn and Bell Pepper: The Perfect Harmony

To balance out the sweetness of the corn, we introduce a red bell pepper and a touch of smoked paprika. If fresh corn on the cob is not readily available, frozen kernels will work just as well. Combined with ¾ litre of vegetable stock, these ingredients form the base of our scrumptious chowder.

Serving Suggestions for Sweetcorn and Red Pepper Soup

When it comes to presentation, simplicity is key. Serve small portions in large bowls, dusted with an extra sprinkle of smoked paprika and freshly chopped parsley. Remember, parsley is most nutritious and retains its high vitamin C content when added at the end. Pair this delectable soup with some crusty bread to complete the experience. Alternatively, indulge in a gluten-free savory macaron from my book, Mad About Macarons. For an extra treat, warm, fluffy cheese scones make the perfect accompaniment.
