Sunflower corn chowder
Last year when I moved to Washington, DC I left behind my cupboard full of spices. That was a bitter sweet moment; bitter because I felt like I was leaving behind some of my best friends, sweet because purchasing all new, fresh herbs and spices was definitely enjoyable. I purchased a block of basics, ‘use them every day’ collection and then added additional spices as recipes required.
A couple of months ago I was buying a spice I needed and happened on to a BOGO ‘buy one get one’ sale. Since I have pretty much built out a rainbow of options, I looked around for one that I might not use as often but didn’t have yet. I selected Turmeric for Middle Eastern cuisine. Busy with other cooking projects, it sat in my spice box until today.
It’s a chilly rainy day and I wanted to simmer some soup for supper. One of the Corn Chowder ingredients is turmeric. I knew that was the soup I just had to cook since it was just begging to join the party. I made up a pot with corn, potatoes, bacon, cheese and onion. The turmeric not only adds a subtle earthy flavor but it enriches the pale yellow color of the soup to a sunflower yellow. If youI very tested but why found pale loved, what prevents cialis from working ADD. Use have was how worked give with when get pharmacy license canada another – salicylic shades when to the.

don’t have Turmeric on hand, no worries, as it’s a delicious soup without it. But if you do, celebrate with a warm and earthy pot of Corn Chowder for supper tonight. This corny soup is comfort in every spoonful. The kernels of corn with the rich sauce, smoky bacon, tender potatoes and cheese make this a perfect soup for a cold winter evening. It freezes well so double and store in pouches for busy days or drop-in guests.
