Creamy, Healthy Corn and Quinoa Chowder

Creamy, Healthy Corn and Quinoa Chowder: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 15 min.
Total: 25 min.
Traditional corn chowder is made with tons of butter and cream, but this version loses the fat and keeps the comfort. Perfect for a cold winter day.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup red or white quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 Tbs olive oil (can use about 3/4 of a Tbsp)
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 1 large red potato, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 4 small shallots, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cups plain soymilk (I like low-fat soymilk)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 Tbs chopped cilantro, plus a few sprigs for garnish
  • Lime wedges, optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Toast quinoa and cumin seeds in a pot over medium-high heat, 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden and fragrant, stirring constantly. Transfer to bowl.
  • Heat oil in pot; add corn, potato, and shallots. Sauté 5 minutes, or until shallots are translucent. Add broth and soymilk and bring to a boil.
  • Stir in quinoa mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Stir in bell pepper, cover, and simmer 5 minutes, or until quinoa and vegetables are tender.
  • Remove from heat; stir in chopped cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Ladle into soup bowls, and garnish with cilantro sprigs and lime wedges.
  • I served it with toasted pita wedges which were fun to use as little dippers in the soup!
