March 4, 2021Teresa

A friend and former neighbor and I get together every week or two for lunch. We alternate each time who provides the food. Back in early January I made this delicious chowder and served it in bread bowls. Her husband was there at the time and though he’s a “meat and potatoes” man, even he enjoyed this tasty soup.

The nice thing about Creamy Vegetable Chowder is it doesn’t take forever to prepare. I had it ready in about 30 minutes. It does thicken up the longer it’s left out, so you may need to thin it down a little. We, however, prefer a thick chowder over a thin one so I didn’t thin in down after it thickened up.

We were packing up our house in January in preparation for a move. I was doing my best to get rid of a lot of excess stuff in my pantry and refrigerator. When my husband’s cholesterol levels came back too high, I had to get rid of several quarts of half-and-half in my refrigerator and put him on 2% milk. I used a lot of that cream in this recipe. I also cleaned out our freezers of a lot of frozen veggies. It was a win-win for me. 🙂

This vegetable soup is certainly not low calorie since it’s made with half-and-half and cheese. But if you want a comforting soup that sticks to the ribs, Creamy Vegetable Chowder is just what the doctor ordered. Even your kids will enjoy it. 🙂
