  • Dash of oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 inches fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced small
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup broth
  • 1 ten ounce bag frozen corn
  • 1 cup almond milk

In a large sauce pan, add the oil, onion, turmeric powder, garlic and ginger on medium-low and cook until the onion starts to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the sweet potato, water and broth. Cover and simmer on low until the sweet potato is just soft when pricked with the tip of a sharp knife, about 15 to 20 minutes. Add the corn and almond milk and cook until the chowder is heated through, about 5 minutes.
