This healthy Summer Corn Chowder is easy to make, delicious and full of flavor!
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the shallots, bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until onion has softened, about 6-8 minutes.
Add in the flour, thyme and garlic and cook 1 1/2 minutes.
Bring to a boil, then stir in corn kernels, potatoes, turmeric and bay leaf.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove bay leaf then transfer half of the chowder to a blender. Blend until smooth, then stir the mixture back into the pot.
Serve into bowls, garnish with more corn, chives and enjoy!
