  • 1 cup chopped carrot

    1 cup chopped leek

    2 teaspoons olive oil

    1 cup Frontier Co-op No-Chicken Broth Powder

    3 cups water

    3 cups cooked butternut squash

    2 cups milk

    2 cups corn kernels

    1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Coriander Seed 

    1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Cumin Seed 

    1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Chipotle Pepper

    1 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Smoked Sea Salt 

    Juice of half of a lime


    FOR THE GARNISH (optional):

    Avocado slices

    Fresh cilantro or parsley 

    Grated cheddar cheese or sour cream





    1. In a soup pot, sauté carrots and leeks in olive oil until almost tender.
    2. Add broth powder, water and squash. Stir together and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and process to desired consistency.
    3. Return mixture to pot; stir in milk and corn. Cook on low heat, stirring often to prevent burning. Add more milk or broth if a thinner soup is desired. Once hot, simmer for 10 minutes to meld flavors.
    4. Add coriander seed, cumin seed, chipotle and smoked salt. Simmer for another 5 minutes, then stir in lime juice. Season with more chipotle or salt if desired.
    5. Garnish with cilantro or parsley. Serve immediately as is or with grated cheddar or yogurt on the side.



    Also good with corn chips or cornbread.
