2 onions, diced
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp sugar
1 medium carrot, sliced and quartered
3 medium potatoes, cubed 1/2"
2 ears of sweet corn (or two cans)
4 cups of vegetable stock
2 cups of water, 1/2 cup reserved
1 tbsp starch (potato or corn)
Salt to taste
On medium heat add oil and onion. When the onions are clear sprinkle the sugar and cook until browned, or caramelized.
Add in the carrot and the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling add corn and potato cubes and cook until soft, about 20 minutes. Remove about half of the soup and set aside. Using an immersion blender, purée the soup into a "rough" texture. Then add in the soup set aside and bring back to a low boil.
With the 1/2 cup of warm water set aside, stir in the tbsp of starch and once dissolved stir slowly into soup. Voila! Perfect corn chowder! If you like more vegetables in yours you can add them.
