In the heat of summer, when corn is 10 ears for two bucks and you don’t want anything to do with your oven, this is just the ticket.

recipe: raw corn chowder
  • 6 ears corn, husked and kernels cut off
  • ½ c raw cashews, powdered
  • 2 c water
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice from 1 lime
  • ¼ t onion powder
  • ⅛ t cayenne
  • ½ t salt (or more to taste)
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  1. Mix powdered cashews and water in your blender until creamy, throw in everything else and process until desired consistency.
  2. I like to leave some of the corn kernels out and add them in for a little rustic chunkiness in the finished product.
  3. Garnish ideas: chopped scallion, cilantro, corn kernels, paprika, cayenne
