Sweetcorn Chowder

It’s still wet and miserable and feels more like October than July, so soup seemed more appropriate than salads and picnics. My girls love sweetcorn so this chowder recipe ticks a lot of boxes, and requires little preparation and shopping – perfect for busy days. This soup is smooth, silky and comforting with no dairy-produce in sight.
