Chowder of Fresh Corn, Amaranth and Quinoa
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Feel free to add other veggies, more or less water or broth, etc. to get the soup/chowder consistency desired.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
In a heavy bottomed Dutch oven or saute pan, heat the oil and then add the chopped onion, garlic, celery, bell pepper, salt and dried herbs. Saute, stirring frequently, for about 4-5 minutes to soften the veggies. Add the amaranth and the water or broth and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa and return to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. While it is simmering, cut the corn from the cobs and measure out about 3 cups or so. With steel chopping blade in place in food processor, whirl the corn to puree it a bit, adding a few tablespoons of milk or water if necessary. It does not have to be perfectly smooth, texture is fine! Stir the corn into the soup pan and cook about 5 minutes, until the quinoa and amaranth are tender. Stir in the milk. Taste, adding more salt if necessary. Serve in soup bowls with lots of fresh snipped parsley on the top.
