Zucchini Corn Chowder

Zucchini Corn Chowder with Radishes. Crocktober Day 2!

The second post that I posted on my Instagram was a zucchini corn chowder recipe. This was in 2016! I want to revisit this recipe because I remember it being delicious + I haven’t made it since then, yikes!. Here in Dallas, it’s finally staying below 90 degrees. What better way to celebrate Crocktober Fest day 2 than with a Zucchini Corn Chowder. Day 1 was a  Festive Potato Soup recipe!

It seems wildly appropriate. If you happen scroll way back on my Instagram feed you’ll see the original recipe called for a few different ingredients. I made some adjustments, but I promise this one is just as tasty.



My mom sent me a message the other day about putting radishes in soups. She said the radishes ended up looking and tasting similar to potatoes. If you know me you know I love potatoes. I went to Aldi and got the small bag of radishes to try out. I didn’t buy them with Zucchini Corn Chowder in mind, but I felt like it needed more color. After I closed the lid I decided to take it back off and throw radishes in. I’m so glad I did because they are such beautiful, tasty vegetables. 


Zucchini Corn Chowder with Radishes


  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 cup baby carrots cut horizontally
  • 10-15 radishes one bag from Aldi
  • 3 cups veggie broth
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 1/2 zucchini diced
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • salt + pepper


  1. Set InstantPot to saute mode. Once hot saute carrots and onion until aromatic and onions are soft. 

  2. Once soft add vegetable broth, corn, zucchini, and radishes. Change Instant Pot setting from sauteing to manual, close and cook for 10 minutes (make sure the valve is closed)

  3. After the 10 minutes pass, releases value carefully allowing steam to escape. Open lid once steaming is done. 

  4. Take 1/4-1/2 of freshly cooked soup and add to Vitamix or food processor. Briefly blend about 15-30 seconds just until no longer chunky. 

  5. Pour blended mix back into Instant Pot and stir together adding nutritional yeast, thyme and salt, and pepper.
