Healthy Corn Chowder | #10HealthyMeals | Donal Skehan

Hi Guys, Donal here. I have a brilliant quick, simple and healthy little recipe to keep you warm during these colder winter months It’s a corn chowder, it’s very, very easy to make and best of all It is luscious, creamy and sweet It starts off with cutting up, some celery and some onion If you’re looking for the recipe, it is on, so head over and check it out Once you have that celery and onion chopped up. Get a little drop of Olive Oil into a large pot. Little drop goes in and once that’s nice and warm, get your celery and your onion straight in there. You want to fry this off until it’s nice, soft and tender but the extra dimension of flavour I’m going to add in here, is a little drop bit of Pine Leaves. and this will give you the most beautiful, aromatic flavour and just really build the base flavours of this soup It only takes a few ingredients to make something very, very simple, very healthy and totally declious While that’s frying off, I’m going to chop up my potato, now you can use a waxy or floury potato here It depends how you like the finish on your soup. But I’m using one that has a nice combination of the two. So i’m going to peel that up and give it a quick peel on the outside and then just chop into cubes In terms of size of the little cubes you’re going to make, you just want small enough bite size pieces, that make this a very hearty chowder, very nice. I’ve checked on my onion and my celery and it is looking and smelling very good So at this point it’s time to make the creamy element of this wonderful soup In with a little bit of plain flour and essentially this is going to help to thicken this soup and give you a really kinda creamy and rich chowder So stir that straight through. Now I’m using low fat milk… add that in. and the flour and the milk are going to act together and give you this wonderful rich and creamy finish to the soup Once that’s nicely combined, grab up your potatoes and just chuck them straight in You want to cook these potatoes for about 12 minutes, but you want them to be tender but not mushy they need to be holding their shape My potatoes are nearly cooked, so now it’s time to chop up some spring onions nice and fine Straight into the pot It adds brilliant colour in through white mixture and then for our lovely sweetness… a bit of sweetcorn Give that all a good stir through and it is time to taste So grab up a little bit of sweetcorn, a little potato, some spring onion in there and give it a taste. What is absolutely brilliant about this recipe is, that you’re taking just a few key little ingredients that are Full of flavour, making something that is really healthy and it results in the most delicious Hearty chowder that is sweet and luscious and creamy. All the things you want it to be It is very, very easy to make So now I’m going to serve it up into a bowl Finish it off with some chopped chive and little parmesan crisps for a bit of bite It is a really simple and healthy recipe and if you want to check it out in the box below Head over to You’ll find lots of delicious healthy recipes.

    Brilliant! It's 34º Celsius here and Im still considering cooking that for dinner tomorrow! Cheers from Brazil matte!

  2. Sarahjane Baxter says:

    This recipe is brilliant ill substitute the unsweetened almond milk and give it a go its been -13 at night here in the states this would make a great dinner

    Throw in some crawfish and cayenne for a twist.  I'm from Louisiana, so I love a little spice.  I've been making a less than healthy crawfish and corn chowder for years.  I really must try this lighter version.   

  4. ros02 says:

    Has anyone tried freezing this? Just wondering if it's the sort of dish that could be bulk cooked and frozen in portions…….

  5. machinegun20 says:

    I'm sorry, but this is not a healthy recipe. 

    Potato: high in carbs
    Corn: high in carbs
    Milk: a lot of things, do a search for yourself. 

    Besides that, a lack of proteins and good fats makes this recipe not only non-nutritiional but also unhealthy. 

  6. JD5789 says:

    I don't eat celery outside of this type of recipe; however, you can't buy just a few stalks (at least here) – I always end up throwing away half to 3/4ths of what I buy. Any tips for  extending the shelf life of celery?

  7. Leo Watkins says:

    looks lovely! but where's the seasoning eh 😉

  8. Lisa S says:

    Great recipe, Donal!!! I'll give it a go for sure!!! I'll try it adding a bit of chili pepper. Thx!!!

  19. porcusuxor says:

    Finally tried this one out, and substituted all purpose gluten-free flour for the plain flour and coconut milk for the semi-skimmed milk. Still came out okay but was on the sweet side. Will keep tweaking it until I get the right combinations!

  20. SanjaI88 says:

    This is not healthy.

  21. Terchio says:

  23. Faisal Usman says:

    Dear Food Tube….how would you make this vegan or gluten free?  What would you substitute?

  24. Tranquil789 says:

    I love that a lot of the ingredients I already have in my fridge most of the time, can't wait to give this one a go!

  25. Yuchao Huang says:

  27. Maria L says:

    You are Awesome!!

  28. Liam Q says:

    How the hell did you thicken it up?

  29. stdonutz says:

    can I use heavy cream instead of milk? I know it isn't as healthy but I have some heavy cream that is about to expire soon


    Dude you are killing it. Your channel helps a lot for student / bachelor cooking. Big Thank you 🙂

  31. Idellolrence says:

    what does it taste like? is it sweet? were going to cook this in school for a cooking contest,but my classmate said that this soup might be too sweet…

  32. Nancy Vargas says:

    hi I love love all these type of creamy types of foods they are my favorite but I just recently found out my husband has become lactose intolerant. what can I do? when all these yummy recipes call for milk or whole milk. would it be the same with any other animal milk we are both new to this whole lactose intolerance thing.

  33. Peter Smith says:

    Jamie Oliver, shite! can only do salads.

  34. KR says:

    how was quarter a bootle of oil a little drop?

  35. oddooddood says:

    "Just a little drop of olive oil." Glug Glug Glug

  36. Владимир Михайлов says:

    Выглядит аппетитно, надо будет попробовать.

  37. trash says:

    Little drop? XD

  38. Ai Di says:

    So funny to have KFC add before this video ))))

  39. Blinded says:

    I don't care much about healthy but simple and delicious? Can't say no to that.

  40. Rita A says:

    Looks great! will try with prawns

  41. Aspiring Cat Lady says:

    I just tried out this recipe! However, I used lactose-free milk which is a little sweeter than normal milk so it turned out a bit different. I also added a VERY generous amount of salt and pepper, and I used fresh corn off the cob which I tossed in at the same time as the potatoes. Thank you, Donal!

  42. kommentator says:

    Who still uses milk in the year 2018? By now everyone should know how unhealthy milk is and that it makes cancer cells grow rapidly. shakes head Now I remember why I have never cooked any Jamie Oliver recipes in my life.

  43. JoeDobz95 says:

    Potatoes aren't healthy tho

  44. Tuna1989 says:


  45. Valen Sinclair says:

    The recipe calls for no salt or pepper? O_o

  46. Andre Newcomb says:

    Boil what takes longest. Then add what takes the next longest. And on and on until everything is safe to eat. Pour off the water. Immediately add milk and cook only until it comes to a boil. Add stick of margarine or butter until melted. Atom heart mother. Loving life and grateful dead.

  47. amphibious midget says:

    It's funny how they never add some salt…..

  48. George Mason says:

    With all the free oil and dairy I wouldn’t call it a healthy recipe.

  49. Ace Portgas says:

    Is he your son, the way he said beautifu🤣
