Homemade Corn Chowder

My husband is obsessed with corn chowder, cornbread, and I love corn on the cobb.  So I decided to try my hand at some homemade corn chowder. It turned out delicious. Let me know what you think in the comments.


  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or butter
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup small diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup small diced celery
  • 3 cups corn kernels
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups milk, (any kind)
  • 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and large (1-inch diced ~3 cups)
  • 3 teaspoons of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves


  • Place butter or oil into a large, heavy-bottomed soup pot. 
  • Add your onions, bell pepper, carrot, celery and cook on medium heat until vegetables soften. (about 5 minutes)
  • Add milk, bay leaf to pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a bare simmer. Cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, add your potatoes, salt, and thyme to the pot. Simmer and cook for another 10 minutes.
