Garlic Zucchini and Corn Chowder

Zucchini and Corn

They’re two of my favorite vegetables, and this time of year, you can find both in abundance. Zucchini and Corn Chowder is a perfect summer soup– it’s light, healthy, and delicious! And it doesn’t have to be piping hot for you to enjoy it!

Zucchini is pretty easy to find year round, though it’s in season during the late spring and early summer. Corn, however is a different story. Corn on the cob is best during the summer, especially the hot months. But if you find yourself craving this soup during the off season, canned or frozen corn works just as well.

Soup vs. Chowder

What is chowder? And how is it different from soup? Chowders are usually thickened, and are chunky (opposed to bisques ,which are smooth).

I actually think I like chowders more than soups. Soup can sometimes be too watery for me.

Regardless of all of that, THIS chowder is tasty!

It’s helped along by using Chef Shamy Garlic Butter, which not only gives a great flavor to the vegetables, but provides a delicious base for the roux that thickens the broth.

Enjoy!
