A deliciously fresh Vegetarian Summer Corn and Vegetable Chowder with lots of corn, zucchini, chilies, white beans, goat cheese and saffron topped with Crunchy Honey Lime Corn Nuggets, radishes and fresh cilantro.
Heat oil over medium heat in a large stockpot. Add onions and cook until soft.
Toss corn, zucchini, green chilies, potato, and fresno chili to the pan and saute for 4 to 5 minutes before adding saffron, cinnamon and coriander. Continue to cook until you smell the spices, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour water into the stockpot and add the Better than Bouillon Chicken Stock Base or Veggie base. Bring up to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until veggies are soft.
Add the white beans to the pot. Using a stick blender, or a food processor, puree the mixture until smooth.
Melt the goat cheese into the chowder and simmer until you reach your desired thickness.
