Farmstand Corn Chowder

Are you hanging onto summer like we are? Here's a great recipe to bridge the divide from the hot summer harvest and the cool days ahead. This hot and creamy corn chowder can be made from the fresh bounty of your garden or local farmers' market. Season it just the way you like it, find some shade, and dream of cooler autumn days ahead.

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. olive oil
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
3 ears corn cut off the cob (don’t throw the cobs yet)
1 ear corn, cut into 4 sections
3 small red potatoes, diced
4 cups chopped kale
7-8 cup water
1/4 -1/2 cup coconut milk creamer (like So Delicious) or any dairy-free milk
salt and pepper to taste
sliced tomatoes for garnish

Directions:

1. Heat oil over medium heat in a stock pot. When hot but not smoking, add garlic, onion and tomato. Saute until onions are soft.
2. Add corn kernels, cobs, sections of corn, potatoes and water. Let boil and reduce heat to a simmer until the potatoes are cooked through.
3. Take the cobs and the 4 sections out of the pot. Discard the cobs and set the corn sections aside.
4. Place half the soup in a blender and puree until smooth. Put the puree back in the pot. Add the chopped kale and dairy-free creamer/milk. Stir to incorporate. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
5. To serve, place in four bowls and top with a section of corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes.

More People Eating Meat-Free

Compassion Over Killing recently reported: "According to Mintel’s [market research] survey conducted earlier this year, 36 percent of consumers -- that’s over one-third of shoppers -- say they buy meat alternatives even though only 7 percent of them identify as being vegetarian...

According to Mintel, in 2012, veggie meat sales reached $553 million, which is an 8 percent jump from 2010. Veggie burgers are the most popular meat alternatives followed by alternatives to poultry, like Tofurky...

Mintel food and drink analyst Beth Bloom says, 'The bottom line is vegetarians and vegans aren’t the only people eating [veggie meats], meat eaters are also exploring this new-found protein superpower.'"
