"Sex is good, but not as good as fresh sweet corn." -Garrison Keillor, Humorist
Most people think of corn as a vegetable, but it's actually a whole grain. Like wheat or rice, corn has a lot of fiber, good quality fats, and carbohydrates.
I like to make my corn chowder with russet potatoes. The waxy red potatoes will not thicken a soup as well as the more fragile russets, which will break down slowly to make the soup creamy.

This recipe can easily be multiplied. This soup is better if it cools and sits in the fridge overnight. Keeps well for about 48 to 72 hours. Serve with a 2 ounce whole wheat or gluten-free roll and a salad.
Place the olive oil in a medium stock pot over medium heat.
Add the minced garlic and onion and cook for five minutes.
Stir frequently and do not allow to brown.
After about ten minutes the onions will be translucent and slightly soft.
Add the potatoes, corn and vegetable.
Simmer over very low heat for 45 minutes. Do not allow the soup to boil.
Add the milk, fresh thyme, salt and pepper and cook for fifteen minutes longer.
Remove and allow to cool and then chill at least overnight.
Reheat soup very gently for about 20 minutes before serving.
