Soup-er Sunday: Corn Quinoa and Sweet Potato Chowder

Soup-er Sunday is back. Today’s gorgeous fall weather was the perfect day to try a new recipe that was shared with me from Karen at Fancy Little Feet. Per Karen’s recommendation, I modified tonight’s recipe from The Pretty Bee.

Corn Quinoa and Sweet Potato Chowder

Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 very large sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 32 ounce container of vegetable broth
⅔ cup quinoa
1 cup water 1 cup coconut milk
½ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon white pepper
1 cup frozen corn
cilantro for garnish
Directions:
  1. In a heavy bottomed pot, heat the oil and chopped onion over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes and broth, bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and cook for about 20 minutes.
  3. Add the quinoa, cup of water cup of coconut milk, and spices and continue cooking until quinoa is tender (you will see the little ring around the edge of the quinoa loosen), about 15 more minutes. If too much of the water has evaporated, add a bit more. It should be a thick soup, but you should still see broth.
  4. Add the corn and cook until corn is heated through, about five minutes.
  5. Serve topped with cilantro if desired.

(I doubled this recipe to have enough for lunch left overs this week.)

Served with a side of corn bread, tonight’s dinner was delicious! I stuffed in as much as I could, and I can’t wait for lunch tomorrow.
