Corn Chowder -  ©Deborah Barr

5-6 ears of corn

¼ cp. parsley finely chopped

2/3 cp. millet or quinoa

3-4 tsp. sweet white miso or chickpea miso**

1 diced onion

1/2 cp. diced celery

1 tsp. each: tarragon, thyme, sage

6-8 cp. water

1 small finely diced red pepper

Remove corn from cobs.  For a savory stock, simmer the cobs 15 minutes and discard, Wash grain.  If using millet roast in a dry skillet over low to medium flame, stirring constantly, until the millet turns golden and smells aromatic.  Add grain to stock, cover and simmer 15 minutes.  Sauté onion in a small amount of olive oil for a few minutes.  Add the herbs and celery, sautéing 3-5 minutes.   Add the corn and sautéed vegetables to the stock and simmer 10-15 minutes more. Add red pepper and simmer 5 minutes. Add miso and simmer 3-5 minutes.  Turn off the flame and stir in parsley and garnish with scallions.

 **if you do not have miso, use a liquid vegetable bouillon in place of the water.  I like the ones by Pacific and Imagine in a soup box, or Rapunzel bouillon cubes. 

 Therapeutic Properties:  Corn is sweet in flavor, nourishing for the heart and stomach; helps regulate digestion; is diuretic; promotes healthy teeth and gums. 

 The flavor of Millet is sweet and salty.  It is beneficial to the stomach, spleen and pancreas; moistens dryness; is diuretic; alkalizing; high is protein and rich in silicon; useful for diarrhea, vomiting, indigestion, morning sickness and diabetes.  One of the best grains for Candida albicans overgrowth.

 Miso comes in many varieties from meaty and savory to sweet and delicate.  Lighter miso (as recommended in this recipe) are more sweet.  Miso is high in protein with a trace of vitamin B12; a live food containing lactobacillus that aids digestion and assimilation; creates an alkaline condition which promotes resistance to disease; treats and prevents radiation sickness; treats some types of heart disease and cancer; neutralizes some of the effects of smoking and air pollution.
