Hi Guys, Donal here. I have a brilliant quick, simple and healthy little recipe to keep you warm during these colder winter months It’s a corn chowder, it’s very, very easy to make and best of all It is luscious, creamy and sweet It starts off with cutting up, some celery and some onion If you’re looking for the recipe, it is on, so head over and check it out Once you have that celery and onion chopped up. Get a little drop of Olive Oil into a large pot. Little drop goes in and once that’s nice and warm, get your celery and your onion straight in there. You want to fry this off until it’s nice, soft and tender but the extra dimension of flavour I’m going to add in here, is a little drop bit of Pine Leaves. and this will give you the most beautiful, aromatic flavour and just really build the base flavours of this soup It only takes a few ingredients to make something very, very simple, very healthy and totally declious While that’s frying off, I’m going to chop up my potato, now you can use a waxy or floury potato here It depends how you like the finish on your soup. But I’m using one that has a nice combination of the two. So i’m going to peel that up and give it a quick peel on the outside and then just chop into cubes In terms of size of the little cubes you’re going to make, you just want small enough bite size pieces, that make this a very hearty chowder, very nice. I’ve checked on my onion and my celery and it is looking and smelling very good So at this point it’s time to make the creamy element of this wonderful soup In with a little bit of plain flour and essentially this is going to help to thicken this soup and give you a really kinda creamy and rich chowder So stir that straight through. Now I’m using low fat milk… add that in. and the flour and the milk are going to act together and give you this wonderful rich and creamy finish to the soup Once that’s nicely combined, grab up your potatoes and just chuck them straight in You want to cook these potatoes for about 12 minutes, but you want them to be tender but not mushy they need to be holding their shape My potatoes are nearly cooked, so now it’s time to chop up some spring onions nice and fine Straight into the pot It adds brilliant colour in through white mixture and then for our lovely sweetness… a bit of sweetcorn Give that all a good stir through and it is time to taste So grab up a little bit of sweetcorn, a little potato, some spring onion in there and give it a taste.
