How To Make creamy roasted winter vegetable soup or chowder

  • 1
    1. Put all vegetables in a large roasting pan and toss with olive oil, herbs and spices.
  • 2
    Pour in 1 cup veg. broth and 1/2 cup wine
  • 3
    Roast at 400 degrees stirring occasionally until vegetables are fork tender and slightly brown. (40 minutes to 1 hour)
  • 4
    In a large dutch oven or soup pot heat 2 tbls butter. Add roasted vegetables making sure to get all of the good juices and scrapings from the bottom of the roasting pan. Next add the remainder of 1 qt of vegetable broth bring to a simmer, then puree with an immersion blender or in small batches in a blender. If it seems too thick thin down with more broth.
  • 5
    Add one cup milk and one cup of defrosted corn and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. At this point if you like hot sauce ( we use tabasco) add to taste. Sometimes I add a little curry powder at this point instead of tabasco. Either hot sauce or curry could be added to the bowls of those eating the soup.
