30-min Corn Chowder

If you need a quick and nourishing meal made from basic ingredients - try this veggie-packed 30-min Corn Chowder


This is an uncertain time for everyone, but one way to help calm your nerves and take care of your physical body is to feed it nourishing food. Cooking is a great way to de-stress, connect with and share with family members. You can get the kids involved in adding ingredients to the pot or stirring the soup.


Made from shelf-stable ingredients like beans and coconut milk, frozen corn, and easy-to-swap veggies like sweet potatoes, kale, carrots, and bell peppers, this 30-min Corn Chowder comes together easily and saves well for meal prep or in the freezer. You can swap out the sweet potatoes for regular potatoes, use frozen vegetable instead of fresh, or swap out the carrots/bell pepper/kale for whatever you have. I used an organic three bean blend but any type of beans works.
