  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, then 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.
Recipe Tips:
  1. Also good with corn chips or cornbread.
  2. To make Curried Squash and Corn Chowder, replace milk with coconut milk and spices with 2 teaspoons curry powder.
