Note: Feel free to use whole milk instead of cream to cut out some of the calories in this chowder, however the end result will be slightly thinner.
Ingredients
  • 2 ears of sweet fresh corn, husked
  • Small butternut squash (to make 8 ounces sliced)
  • 1 small onion (to make about ¼ cup diced)
  • 2 small peeled potatoes (to make about 8 ounces diced)
  • ½ stick (4 tablespoons) butter, plus extra for the sliced Ciabatta bread if desired
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage (or ½ teaspoon dried if fresh isn’t available)
  • ¼ cup canned white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt (such as Lawry’s)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Ciabatta bread to serve with chowder
Instructions
  1. Place husked ear of corn over a bundt pan to hold in place and catch kernels, and using the OXO Good Grips Corn Peeler, remove kernels from both ears and set aside. Peel the butternut squash and cut in half lengthwise. Remove squash seeds with the OXO Good Grips Fruit Scoop.
  2. Cut one half of the squash into four strips lengthwise and with the OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer, slice each strip into ¼ inch pieces using the safety guard as you get close to the blade. Set aside 8 ounces (any extra may be frozen for another recipe). Dice onion and set aside. Dice potato and hold in a small bowl of cold water to prevent browning and set aside.
  3. In a medium nonstick pot over medium high heat, melt butter and add squash, corn and onions. Sauté for four minutes, then add flour. Stir and cook one minute. Drain the potatoes, then add them into the pot along with stock, sage, white beans, and seasoned salt. Increase heat to high.
  4. Once the mixture comes to a boil, lower to a medium but brisk boil and cook uncovered stirring occasionally for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  5. Remove pot from the heat and add cream. Stir to combine and serve with toasted Ciabatta bread spread with a little butter.

  3. This is gorgeous – I need a spoon, stat!!

  4. Made this today and it was great, I can’t do dairy so I substituted the cream for tofu. You put silken tofu in the blender for a few seconds and it works just like cream.

  5. I’m going to make this on Tuesday…looks geat! How many cups of corn did you get/ use? The size of the ear could really vary the end amount. Thx

    • Hi Franny! I’d say it was about 1 1/2 to 2 cups or so of corn. But it’s a very forgiving recipe so if your two ears gives you more or less, it will be perfectly fine! Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  6. Just made this for dinner. Holy cow, it was sooooooo amazing!!

  7. making the soup
    great for a cold winter nite

    where did you buy the bowls
    thanks robin

    • Thanks Robin! The bowls are from Crate & Barrel – but I know they discontinued them this past summer so I don’t think you’ll be able to find them in the store anymore! Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  8. Thanks so much for this! It was a cinch to put together… A really tasty soup for a wintertime meal.
