    Corn Chowder (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Soups make wonderful lunches and double as light dinners. They’re also a great way to introduce almost any meal. This recipe calls for the soup to be partially blended which creates a creamy texture while still maintaining a rustic quality.

    You could easily blend the entire pot with a hand-held blender or in batches depending on the size of your blender or food processor. Whatever your preference, never bring your soup to a boil; nothing ruins the flavor quicker. Whether served warm in the winter or chilled in the summertime, make it a point to stock up on corn to try this is an always-tasty, go-to chowder.

    Ingredients:
    3-4 large ears of corn
    5 cups milk
    2 large Russet potatoes, diced
    1 medium onions, diced
    3 celery stalks, diced
    5 slices bacon, chopped
    1 ½ tablespoons butter
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon pepper

    Directions:
    Remove kernels from ears and set aside, reserving the cobs.

    Cook bacon in a large soup or stock pot over medium heat until they begin to crisp, stirring occasionally, about 10-12 minutes. Leave bacon in pot along with about 2 tablespoons of fat. Add onion and celery and cook until tender and slightly browned, stirring occasionally for an additional 10-12 minutes.

    Add milk, potatoes and cobs to the pot. Gently simmer while covered until potatoes become tender, 12-15 minutes. Remove and discard cobs and add kernels to the soup along with salt and pepper.

    Simmer 5-7 minutes longer until kernels soften slightly. Remove from heat and separate about half the solids from the soup and puree in a blender until smooth. Return to soup and add butter. Heat over low until butter is melted and incorporated.
