Cajun Corn Chowder
One of my favorites. Wild rice gives this creamy soup added texture
 and a nutty taste to go along with lip-smacking spices.

Corn chowder
A little sausage goes a long way
 in this delicious soup

Soup ingredients:
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. package frozen corn, thawed
1 medium-large onion, coarsely chopped
3-4 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
3/4 cup wild rice
1/4 lb. kielbasa sausage (or andoiulle), quartered lenthwise, then sliced to make little wedges
8 cups chicken stock or broth
1 tsp. each oregano, thyme, basil & cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 12-oz. can fat-free evaporated milk
Salt & pepper to taste

-Bring 2 1/2 cups chicken stock to boil, add wild rice. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 40 minutes, until rice is almost tender, stirring occasionally.
-Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat, add onions, carrots and garlic. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add sausage, oregano, thyme, basil, cumin and cayenne. Cook 5 minutes longer.
-Add four cups chicken broth, bring to boil, then reduce heat, cover (not too tightly) and simmer 20 minutes.
-While that is cooking, put 3/4 lb. corn in blender, add enough chicken stock to nearly cover corn and blend. Result should be  about as thick as a good milkshake.
-Add wild rice and corn mixture to soup along with remaining 1/4 lb. corn. Continue simmering 15 minutes, then reduce heat to low, add 8-12 oz. evaporated milk and let flavors blend for 15-30 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe makes about 8 pints. Enjoy!

    I started cooking healthy soups to eat for lunch about the same time I began using Isagenix supplements. Both were attempts to improve my health and help me to age youthfully. And it works! Now in my 60s, I feel like a kid and am still playing rugby with guys half my age.
    Exercising regularly and eating right are a good start, but to really optimize your health you probably need more. Isagenix products are designed to give your body the building blocks it needs to remove toxins and develop lean muscle mass. And the side effect is weight loss.
    Besides improving health, Isagenix is also the fastest growing network marketing company in the nation, so there’s a great home-based business opportunity, too.
