Yummy Corn Chowder – Lenten Friendly

I am always looking for good recipes during Lent and this is one of our family favorite. Super easy and very tasty! Even our 1 1/2 year old loves it. I usually double or triple the recipe so that we have extra to freeze.

Enjoy!

This recipe serves 4-6
Hands-On Time 25m
Total Time 45m
Ingredients
* 2 TBS good olive oil
* 1 large sweet onion, chopped
* 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
* 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
* 2 10-ounce packages frozen corn
* 3 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
* 1 cup half-and-half
* kosher salt and pepper
* 4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced

Directions

* Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a Dutch Oven over medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, and red pepper and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the corn, broth, and half-and-half and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
* Transfer half the soup to a blender and puree until smooth. Make sure to add a little at a time or else you’ll blow the top off of the blender. Return to the pot, add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and stir to combine.
* Divide the soup among individual bowls and top with the scallions.
