If you love chowder as much as I do but don’t want all the cream, then here is a great recipe. It’s what I’m making for dinner (with a few omissions based on what I had in the fridge):
1 medium onion, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 red/yellow or orange pepper, chopped
2 cups corn, frozen kernels ok
1 cup chicken or veggie stock
2 large potatoes, cut up into equal sizes
2 cups milk
1. heat large pot with some nonstick cooking spray to medium heat. Add in the onion, celery, peppers – stir every once and a while until tender. About 5 mins
2. Add in corn, stock, potatoes. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender
3. Ladle about half of it all into the blender/food processor. Add milk. Blend until smooth. All of this will make the soup nice and thick.
4. Return it all to the pot. Mix together. Reheat. Add spices.
