Thank you to glutenfreegoddess for inspiration on this delicious soup!


Roasted Corn Chowder Recipe with Chicken, Lime and Cilantro


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 to 1 teaspoon curry or chili powder or paste, mild or hot, to taste
4-5 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
1 medium sweet onion, diced
3 ears of corn, roasted, kernels removed (roast in oven at 350 for 30 min, in husk, then cool and cut kernels off)
1 large sweet potato, peeled, diced
1 14-oz can Diced Tomatoes
1 jalapeno, roasted, chopped and diced
1 cup seeded, chopped fresh heirloom tomatoes (I used Campari)
7 oz. can green chiles
1 quart light chicken or vegetable broth
1 14-oz can coconut milk
2 rounded cups torn cooked chicken pieces (optional)
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
A quick drizzle of organic raw agave, to taste

To serve:

3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
Fresh lime juice from 2 juicy limes


Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat and stir in the cumin and curry or chili powder; cook for one minute to infuse the oil with spice.

Add the chopped garlic and onion. Stir and cook for five minutes. Add the roasted corn, sweet potato, canned fire roasted tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, green chiles and ja; stir for a minute. Add in the broth.

Cover and bring to a high simmer. Lower the heat and simmer gently, until the sweet potatoes are tender, about twenty minutes or so.

Add the coconut milk and cooked chicken pieces. Stir and season with sea salt and ground pepper; and add a drizzle of organic raw agave to taste. Heat through gently- please don't boil it.

Just before serving, add the chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice. Stir. Taste test. Adjust seasoning. The lime juice brightens the taste and accents the spice. Agave cools the hotness.

Garnish with a lime wedge and pass out the spoons. Slurp. Smile.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
