Reader Recipe: Corn and Kielbasa Chowder


I was captivated when I first saw this TeamSugar photo — the potato and meat in the soup look chunky and hearty, and I can just taste the dill on the tip of my tongue. I was too enthralled to even notice that this recipe, with its step-by-step photos, was actually Syako's first attempt at food photography! If you, too, are tempted by the dinner possibility, then read more.

Corn & Kielbasa Chowder - perfect for fall

Ingredients

8 ounces kielbasa, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
2 onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
One 14.5-ounce can chicken broth
1 large baking potato (about 12 ounces), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup half-and-half
One 1-pound bag frozen corn, thawed
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh dill, for garnish

Directions

Last night I took my first stab at food photography. I was in the middle of making one of my favorite stand by's for cooler weather - this corn and kielbasa chowder. It's not only easy to make, it's delicious and it's a soup that only takes 30 or so minutes to make. You can't beat that! I decided I'd do a little photographic journey while cooking my favorite homemade soup. Enjoy!

1. Heat a deep skillet or a wide 4- to 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add the kielbasa and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

2. Add the onions and butter to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes.

Add the broth and potato and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer until the potato is tender, about 10 minutes.

Add the half-and-half and corn and cook, stirring, until heated through.
3. Using a blender or food processor, puree 1 cup chowder until smooth. Stir the puree back into the chowder along with the browned kielbasa and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with the dill.
