  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add Pompeian Smooth Extra Virgin Olive Oil. When hot, add onion. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring. Add carrots, celery, and bell pepper; cook for 8-10 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute.
  2. To the pot, add chopped potatoes, 3 cups corn, bay leaf, and broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer and cover. Cook for 20-25 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
  3. Meanwhile, drain cashews. In a blender or food processor, add cashews, remaining 1 cup corn, and 1 cup water. Blend until smooth.
  4. When the chowder is done cooking, add cashew/corn mixture, green chiles, salt, pepper, paprika, turmeric, and liquid smoke; stir. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove bay leaf before serving. Garnish with green onions.


*If you need soaked cashews in a hurry, boil raw cashews in a pot of water for 10 minutes.
