Homemade Corn Broth

Sweet Corn Chowder
Summer calls for lighter meals, and this chowder delivers with a healthier take on a classic. The soup is thickened by pureeing part of it in a blender, eliminating the need for flour or cream. Fresh sage and a hint of chile pepper flakes give it a subtle, smoky flavor. We suggest using grilled or roasted corn, but thawed frozen kernels will work well in a pinch.
