End of Summer Corn Chowder

End of Summer Corn Chowder

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cups red potatoes, diced
5 cups vegetable broth(I used 1 box of Organic+ a little water)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
5 ears fresh corn
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
pepper, to taste
2 scallions, chopped

In a large sauce, pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onions, and cook 10 minutes, until beginning to brown.

 Stir in cayenne and potatoes, and cook 3 minutes, stirring often.

 Add vegetable broth, sour cream and salt, stirring well. Cook 30 minutes.

With a potato masher, lightly mash about half the potatoes, to create a thicker broth. Cook an additional 10 minutes, until potatoes are tender.

Stir in corn and cheddar, and cook 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with scallions and additional sour cream, if desired.

Yum Yum, perfect transition to Fall! :-)

*I found the original recipe at fresh365online
