Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 bell pepper, yellow or orange

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

  • 8 ears of corn

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 3 shallots, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme

  • 1 pound yellow potatoes

  • 5 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 ½ tablespoons flour

  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions

Melt butter in your Larder & Vine Dutch Oven over medium heat. Add the shallots, and bell pepper, and cook, stirring frequently until shallots have softened, about 6 to 8 minutes. 

Add in the flour, thyme, and garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. 

Bring to a boil, then stir in corn kernels, potatoes, turmeric, and bay leaf. 

Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

Remove bay leaf and discard. Either use an immersion blender to gently blend about half of the chowder or transfer about half of the chowder to a blender, blend until smooth, then add the mixture back into the Dutch Oven.

Garnish with fresh corn & chives, then serve and enjoy!
