Corn Chowder with Roasted Corn Kernels is the perfect combination of vegetables and creamy milk broth with just a hint of smokiness from the bacon and smoked paprika. An unbeatable symphony of flavors.

Everyone needs couple of really good soup recipes in their recipe repertoire. From French Onion to Lentil and even Roasted Garlic Soup (yes, the main ingredient is lots and lots of garlic!), a good soup recipe can make your dinner out of this world!

After I made this soup I looked into the pot and realized Oh No! I made waaaay too much. What was I thinking? I kept adding more ingredients so I had to keep adding more liquid and before you know it I had an entire stock pot full of Corn Chowder.

But guess what? My family of 5 polished off that pot of Corn Chowder in 2 days! The kids wanted it for lunch. I wanted it for lunch. Then I wanted it for dinner… It was the perfect combination of vegetables and creamy milk broth with just a hint of smokiness from the bacon and smoked paprika. An unbeatable symphony of flavours. As with any soup with a good broth base, you can easily switch out the ingredients to what you have in your vegetable bin or with what is seasonal. Instead of regular potatoes, how about sweet potato? Skip the celery and add a handful of peas.

Wait! As perfect as those flavors were that wasn’t my favorite part of the soup…

It was the Roasted Corn Kernels garnish! Check out those crispy kernels in the picture! SO much flavour in those little things! Roast them until they’re almost burnt (in fact I burnt the kernels along the edge of the pan but it didn’t matter… so good!) Topping the soup with the crunchy kernels was a genius move! They were like little corn croutons that didn’t get soggy under the weight of the soup. Even the next day the kernels were still crunchy and yummy!

I absolutely love this chowder/soup! The smoked paprika is what adds an amazing flavor to the corn chowder. Very easy to make. Great recipe Hanady!!

Yes this is definitely a summer recipe for the USA. I live in Shanghai China and we're still getting corn (one perk of living here lol)

I've never had corn chowder before! Sounds great!

Aw thank you!! Hope you try it!! It's really nice for those cold fall days!

Recipe Nomad said : administrator Report Nov 04, 2016 at 9:11 AM

That's a great idea!! We're a family of 5 (plus our maid... we live in China) so even though I thought this batch was too much we polished it off in 2 days. But freezing half would have been a good option too! I hope you'll try this!

Oh this looks yummy. It's hard to make too much soup or chowder in my home. If there is more than we can eat in a couple of days I just freeze the rest for speedy work lunches
