Squash, corn, and sweet potato combine to make a hearty chowder that’s perfect for this time of year. Do try to use fresh corn if it’s still available where you live.
With a sharp knife, cut the squash across the center of the rounded part. Remove the seeds and fibers. Slice the squash into 1/2-inch rings, then peel each ring and cut into small dice. If you don’t have a knife (or patience) up to this task, partially prebake the squash to make the cutting and peeling easier.
Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the onion and celery and sauté over medium heat until the onion is golden. Add the squash and sweet potato dice and enough stock or water to cover all but about an inch of the vegetables. Bring to a simmer, then add the bay leaves and other seasonings. Simmer gently, covered, until the squash and potatoes are tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, scoop out 2 heaping cups of the solid ingredients, mash them well, and stir back into the soup. Or simply insert an immersion blender into the soup pot and puree a small portion of the ingredients—enough to give the base of the soup some thickness.
Add the cooked corn kernels and enough rice milk to give the soup a slightly thick consistency. Season with salt and pepper, then simmer over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes longer.
Serve at once, or let the soup stand for an hour or so before serving, then heat through as needed. Stir in the parsley just before serving.This may also be cooked a day ahead and refrigerated, since its flavor develops nicely overnight.
