Hearty “Thai Corn Chowder”


(Serves 2-3)


  1. Separate corn and excess liquid from the can into 2 bowls. Do not throw out the liquid.
  2. In a non-stick pot, saute corn for about 4 minutes
  3. Depending on how chunky you prefer your chowder, follow one of these steps
    Very chunky: roughly blend half the corn, then add it back together with the unblended half in the pot
    Chunky: blend ¾ of the corn, then add back together with the unblended corn
    Smooth: blend all the corn until smooth
  4. Add the coconut cream into mixture (optional)
  5. Add Mekhala’s Organic Lemongrass Turmeric Paste (for a stronger taste, add another tbsp)
  6. Slowly add the saved liquid from the corn can into mixture until desired thickness
  7. Season with salt and pepper
  8. Garnish with cilantro and chillies (optional: leave out the latter if making this dish for kids)
