Day 18 — Something Different

By this time in the fast I am ready for something different to eat.  And just in the nick of time, a friend shared a new Daniel Fast approved recipe… Enjoy!

Corn Chowder

½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup diced onion
4 cups water
1 pound Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes, peeled and diced (about 3 cups)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 ½ cups fresh corn kernels
½ cup unsweetened almond, rice, or soy milk

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, and add onions. Cook until soft and translucent. Add water, potatoes, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add corn and almond milk. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat for another 10 minutes. Place 3 cups of soup in a food processor or blender, and process about 15 seconds. Return to saucepan. Stir well, and serve.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 cup)

Recipe Notes

  • Substitute 2 (14.5-ounce) cans of corn kernels (drained) for fresh corn.

  • Add ½ cup chopped carrots and celery (1/4 cup each).

  • For a southwestern flair, stir in 1 cup of Salsa.
