Jackfruit Corn Chowder

Recently I brought you a recipe for Corn Chowder. We enjoyed it so much I decided to make it again, but with a little twist. I added Roasted Jackfruit to the recipe. It had the same great flavors, just a little heartier.

  • 12 oz corn kernels, frozen, divided
  • 12 oz cauliflower rice, frozen
  • 1 1/2 c plant milk (I used refrigerated coconut milk)
  • 1/2 c sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 c vegetable broth + more for sautéing the onion
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 can of jackfruit, rinsed, drained, roasted (Roasted Jackfruit)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Italian Parsley, fresh, chopped, garnish

Place 1 c of the corn and the cauliflower rice in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 4 minutes. Transfer corn and cauliflower mixture into a high-speed blender. Add the plant milk to the cauliflower-corn mixture and blend until smooth and creamy. (I blended mine on the smoothie button for 50 seconds.) Set aside.

In a large saucepan, sauté the onion until it is has softened and is translucent over medium heat. Add the corn-cauliflower mixture, remaining corn, vegetable broth, garlic, onion powder, and Roasted Jackfruit Turn heat up to medium-high and cook until chowder is hot; stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with parsley.

Corn Chowder

To us Floridians it has been chilly, about 15 degrees below our normal temperature for this time of year. I made this corn chowder to battle the chill. It is a tasty and a heart warming soup.

  • 12 oz corn kernels, frozen, divided
  • 12 oz cauliflower rice, frozen
  • 1 1/2 c plant milk, (I used refrigerated coconut milk)
  • 1/2 c sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 c vegetable broth + more for sautéing the onion
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Italian parsley, fresh chopped, garnish

Place 1 c of the corn and the cauliflower rice in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 4 minutes. Transfer corn and cauliflower mixture into a high-speed blender. Add the plant milk to the cauliflower-corn mixture and blend until smooth and creamy. (I blended mine on the smoothie button for 50 seconds.) Set aside.

In a large saucepan, sauté the onion until it is has softened and is translucent over medium heat. Add the corn-cauliflower mixture, remaining corn, vegetable broth, garlic, onion powder. Turn heat up to medium-high and cook until chowder is hot; stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with fresh parsley.

Note: To make this a bit more heartier you could add some roasted jackfruit.
