2 tablespoon ex vir oil
1 med onion, finely choped
1 clove garic, crushed,
2 stick celery, fine chopped
1 large carrot, very fine chopped
225g (8oz) potato (1/2 rough chop, 1/2 fine chop)
1 340g (12 oz) tin sweetcorn, drained
1/2 teaspoon powder chilli
725ml (1 1/4 pints water)
1 small red pepper, seeded and fine chopped
1/2 med green pepper, seeded fine chopped
1 level teaspoon bottle jalapeno pepper (pos tobasco would work, my guess it would)
75ml (3 fl oz double cream

*note* reading this recipie, my guess is fine chopping is key to sucess,

you do not want hard veg in it, nor do you want to over cook, get chopping wink

heat oil, cook onion till golden

add garlic, 1 min

add celery, add 1/2 the carrott, add the rough half of the chop pot, 1/2 the tin sweetcorn and the chilli powder,

cook 2/3 mins

add water, cover and bring to boil,

simmer for 15 mins till veg tender

cool a little and puree till very smooth

return soup to a clean pan

stir in the red and green peppers, the hot sauce, the remaining carrott, fine chop pots and the remain corn,

cover and bring to the boil then simmer for 10/15 till tender

add double cream and season

serve with fresh chopped corriander

OOOOOOH!!!! The spicy corn chowder and the asparagus, leek and potato sound lovely. If you wouldnt mind??
Are they both low fat? I'm assuming they would be?
