Curried Corn and Pepper Chowder
When fresh corn is available, use about 3 cobs in place of frozen corn; cook and then cut the kernels from the cobs. Roasted corn is especially tasty. For a spicier soup, stir in a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes along with the black pepper. The neutral taste of canola oil allows the vibrant flavors in this main course soup to shine.
