Corn Chowder

This recipe comes to you courtesy of my friend, Camille. She is one excellent cook and has shared so many good recipes with me. She’s the kind of friend who would bring me “good luck” or “congratulations” cakes in high school. Yes, whole cakes. Just for me. Isn’t that sweet? I love this recipe because it is soothing. Warm. Cheesy. Flavorful. Perfect for a cold winter day.

 

2 c water
2 c chopped potatoes
1/2 c sliced carrots
1/2 c chopped celery (sometimes this flavor can overpower, so I omit it or add very little)
1/4 c chopped onion
1 1/2 t salt
1 can baby corn Niblets
pepper to taste
1 c grated parmesan cheese

 

White Sauce:
1/4 c margarine
1/4 c flour
2 c milk or half n half cream

 

Simmer vegetables in water for 10-15 min. Meanwhile make white sauce by melting margarine, whisking in flour, and adding milk or cream. Stir on medium heat until boiling. Boil 1 minute. Turn vegetables to low heat. Add white sauce, salt and pepper. Stir in parmesan cheese. Keep on low heat until cheese is melted (do not boil). Serve warm.
