Anyone else feeling the Autumn/Fall bug yet? I am! I went to Target the other day and fully embraced the pumpkin craze. Even though we live in Florida, I can still feel the shift in weather as the end of the year approaches. Darker mornings, less humidity, cooler mid-day temps… I just love it!
With Fall comes soups! The last of the fresh corn is what I’m making today’s soup with. I added in some broccoli, onions and a few other goodies and had a meal worth writing home about! It’s super creamy and super yummy. It warms you inside and out and makes my tummy so happy! Yes, I’m a mom… I write ‘tummy’ and I don’t care. 🙂
This soup is perfect for little ones learning to eat, bigger ones who don’t always love veggies, biggest ones who need more veggies and the biggest ones ever who just want to eat something good. I personally love it with some cheddar cheese shredded on top and some crusty bread to dip into it.

Creamy Corn & Broccoli Chowder
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 fresh head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 2 cups fresh (uncooked) or frozen sweet corn
- 1 cup whole milk
- In 4-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in butter for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute.
- Stir in broth, broccoli and corn (if using fresh corn, remove kernels from cob and put both the kernels and cob into the pot). Heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.
- Remove from heat (remove and discard corn cobs, if used). Using an immersion blender or regular blender, blend soup until soup is mostly smooth with just a few chunks.
- Stir in milk. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
