Its got a little colder this past week so I decided it was time to venture into the world of soups. I found this Edamame and Corn Chowder recipe over at Martha Stewart’s site. I loved that it had some cream but was also broth based. Also it has two of my favorite ingredients, corn and edamame!
It was super delicious and super easy for a weekend lunch.
Cook your bacon, set aside.
Pour all but about 1Tbs grease from pan.
Add onion, cook until soft.
Add broth, potato, and seasoning. Simmer until potato is tender.
Stir in edamame, creamed corn, and half and half or cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve topped with crumbled bacon.
I’m on a mission to try at least one new food a week!
I love trying new things and there are just way too many things I’ve never tried. I think this is one of those goals that will be easy to stick to, because it will be delicious.
Fun facts about Bok Choy, it contains glucosinolates. These compounds have been reported to prevent cancer in small doses, but are toxic to humans in large doses. It’s also super high in vitamin A and C. (thanks wikipedia!)
I found this recipe for baby bok choy and shiitake mushrooms, I was helpless against its potential delicious factor. I LOVE an excuse to use mushrooms. I’m such a mushroom junkie I adapted this and made it with a mix of mushrooms including shiitake, oyster, portabello and enoki. (yes they sell these at the local grocery store!).
