Thai Corn Chowder

I held out about as long as I could, but it’s officially winter here. Maybe I’m jumping the gun a bit and it’s not really winter – but it might as well be. The weather is cold, the leaves are brown, my finger’s went numb on our bike ride yesterday and we’ve already had snow. As far as I’m concerned, that’s winter. So we’ll rejoice in the good things about winter – and our favorite part? The comfort food.

I never realized how much of a soup and stew addict I was until I started this blog. I have already wiped up 5 batches of soup this year and I haven’t even begun to show them on the blog yet. To be far, my soup cravings started back in August with that minestrone and I never looked back.

I can tell this season is going to be long rough one based on how many ‘comfort’ foods I am already prepared to indulge in. Maybe it’s because the sun sets so early now (did anyone else mess up because of the time change?) and I seem to get sleepy at noon, or maybe it’s just the cold weather settling into my bones. Whatever it is, soups on here at Pass the Sushi – now it’s just a matter of how many we can sneak in. 😉

Yep I cheated and that’s canned corn. There was no fresh corn at the market so that’s as good as it gets for this one.

    I love lemongrass so much, I feel like this corn chowder would beat “regular” corn chowder for me. :) Definitely will keep this recipe on my to-try pile!

    This looks great. I am totally with you- the time change really messed me up and yes, as far as I am concerned it’s also winter. This looks like a great way to warm up at the end of the day. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Mmm you have done well! It’s so chilly here this morning a bowl of this would keep me warm I just know it! I’ll pass on hot chocolate, give me Thai Corn Chowder in a big mug please. I love that you used lemongrass! :)

    This looks very good. The first thing that caught my eye were the sliced radishes. I’ve never cooked with radishes before. I’ll bet they add a nice flavor.

    That looks amazing! I love soups during winter time when it is colder. I cannot believe the time change already happened and that it is so chilly. We just had a ton of snow! But you saw that already when you visited my blog 😉

    I am bookmarking this one to try soon!

    I do love me a creamy corn chowder… it’s never occurred to me to use coconut milk in lieu of cream, but that sounds like a big bowl of awesome, especially with all those other tasty Thai flavours. Sounds like a great way to warm up after a cold bike ride! :)

    Wow – that looks absolutely stunning! I know that it sounds a lot like a generic post, but I am speechless. Absolutely delicious!

    I got the Fables books! Thanks SO much and I can’t wait to start reading them! (is there a particular order you recommend?)

      Oh yeas! You have to read them in order. They are numbered on the sides of the spine. Reading them out of order would just ruin the whole build up! Book one and book two just introduce the characters, book three is where the story starts to unfold.
