    Cajun Spiced Corn Chowder

    2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 small celery stalk, finely chopped
    1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun Blackened Seasoning
    5 cups vegetable stock
    1 cup evaporated milk or light cream
    1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
    1/8 teaspoon Fine White Pepper

    Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, add the onion and saute for 5 minutes. Add the celery and saute for another 3 minutes until well softened. Add the corn and Cajun blackened seasoning and mix well.

    Add the vegetable stock and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30-35 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add the sea salt and white pepper to taste. Add the evaporated milk/light cream and simmer until thickened, 3-5 minutes. You can serve immediately or for a thicker chowder, put a ladle, or so, of soup into a bowl, and using an immersion blender puree until smooth. Pour the blended chowder back into the saucepan and mix well.

    Ladle chowder into bowls and top with a light dusting of Cajun blackened seasoning.
