  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 large knob butter
  • ½ medium onion (diced)
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour (or rice flour to make it gluten-free)
  • 1 can sweet corn (drained and rinsed)(1 can = 15 oz)
  • ½ bell pepper, red (we recommend red)
  • 1 chili pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 shallots (or spring onions)


  • Heat milk and vegetable broth together in a separate pot on a low heat; make sure it doesn’t boil otherwise the fat will separate itself from the milk.
  • Dice up the onion, get a pot and let it simmer in the butter. Then add flour. Stir well.
  • Dice up the bell pepper and add it to the pot. Throw in the corn too.
  • Cut the chili pepper into small pieces and off into the pot with it.
  • Now add the milk and broth mix to the pot. Stir in the cumin and curry powder too.
  • Stir everything well and let it simmer for about 5 minutes on a low heat.
  • Finally throw in the cheddar and let it melt.
  • Cut up the shallots and add them for garnish.
  • That’s it, enjoy your corn chowder!
