In my quest to find a Meat-free recipe for this evening I ended up on Jamie Oliver’s site for a change. I must say, I always come away from there with something and we still make some of the recipes out of his very first books!
I briefly considered making a spinach souffle, but the feeling passed very quickly when I realised how little time I had tonight. And I’m just plainly too scared to go there…
Here then Jamie’s Corn Chowder recipe and below my version:
• 1 celery stalk
• 1 medium onion
• 1 ½ tablespoons butter
• ½ teaspoon dried thyme
• 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
• 3 cups 1% milk
• 1 medium potato, peeled and cut into little cubes
• 1/3 cup chopped cashews
• 2 cups frozen corn
• ¼ cup chopped fresh chives and/or parsley (optional)
4. Meanwhile, chop the celery leaves. When the potatoes are tender, stir in the corn, cashews and celery leaves and bring to the boil. Stir in parsley and serve.
ps. The cashews were good, but I think toasted pine nuts would have been better. And maybe blending the mix before adding the corn. And maybe replacing half of the milk with coconut milk.
Ok. I’ll stop now 🙂
