Who took the bag of corn from my freezer and secretly replaced it with a bag of peas!? Yes, this was supposed to be sweet potato and corn chowder, but these days I just have to go with the flow. This was a super easy recipe; it does take the sweet potato chunks some time to become tender, but you can leave it on the stove simmering and not pay too much attention. I also meant this to be more of a milk based chowder, but there was already a lot of liquid, so I settled for just a splash of milk. Plenty of room for improvement here, so stay tuned.

1 onion, chopped
2 t olive oil
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
2 c. vegetable broth
1 c. frozen peas (or corn!)
Splash of milk

In a medium saucepan, saute onion in olive oil. Add potatoes, and saute for 5 minutes. Add vegetable broth, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Remove cover, add peas, and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat, add a splash of milk, and season with salt and pepper.

  1. Hi Kerry,
    Your chowder looks great. The chowder part looks like my beef stew minus the meat. A slice of good bread. yum yum
    I'm going to try it. Auntie B
