Ingredients for Creamy Potato Leek Corn Chowder

  • Butter & Olive Oil: A winning combination for sautéing the leeks and other veggies.
  • Leeks: A good source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as dietary fiber.
  • Red Bell Pepper: Adds color and flavor; jalapeno can be used as a substitute or addition.
  • Celery: Provides important antioxidants and enhances the texture and flavor base.
  • Whole Milk: Gives the soup its creamy consistency, but coconut milk can be used for a dairy-free version.
  • Flour: Combined with milk, it helps thicken the chowder.
  • Corn: The star ingredient! Fresh sweet corn is delicious, but frozen corn works well too, with a slightly longer cooking time.
  • Red Potatoes: Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Leave the skins on for maximum nutrients or peel them if you prefer.
  • Paprika: Adds a subtle hint of heat.
  • Fresh Parsley & Chives: Infuse the soup with freshness and extra flavor!

How To Make Creamy Potato Leek Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder Recipe

To prepare this delicious chowder, grab your favorite large pot or Dutch oven. Begin by melting the butter and olive oil. Then, add the leeks, celery, and bell pepper, cooking until tender (around 5 minutes), stirring occasionally.

In a large mason jar with a lid, combine the milk and flour, shaking until fully combined (you can also whisk them together in a medium-sized bowl). Slowly add this mixture to the pot, stirring continuously. Next, stir in the broth, corn, potato, paprika, bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and mix in the fresh parsley and chives.
