Potato, Bacon and Corn Chowder

PREP TIME: 15 min


SERVES: 4 – 6


2 tablespoons olive oil
250g smoky bacon, chopped
2 large leeks, washed, trimmed and finely sliced
2 sticks celery, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
1 litre chicken stock
375ml tin evaporated milk
2 bay leaves
600g potato, peeled and chopped into 2cm cubes
3 cobs corn, kernals removed
¼ cup finely grated parmesan
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 spring onions, finely sliced


Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, over a medium heat. Add bacon, cook for 5 minutes or until golden. Remove a third of the bacon and set aside to garnish.

Add leeks, celery, garlic and paprika stirring to combine. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 10 minutes or until leek is soft.

Add stock, milk, bay leaves, potato and corn, bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook for 25 minutes or until potato is soft.

Using a stick blender, puree half the potato mixture until smooth, before returning to the remaining unblended soup. Add parmesan and season with salt and pepper, stirring to combine.

To serve, divide soup between bowls and garnish with reserved cooked bacon and spring onions.
