Chunky Chowder

Vegetable Chowder ~ Super Soups

This soup is soooo chunky and soooo hearty, warm and comforting.

You'll be tempted to use a fork.

But please, use a spoon because we know you'll want to get every last drop and every last morsel.

This chunky vegetable soup is thick with potatoes, pumpkin, and corn.

You won't miss the meat in this hearty stew-like meal.

We make this super-easy soup about every other week.

It's thick and hearty, almost like a stew.

Serve this chowder with a whole grain crusty roll.

And it's a hearty meal on any cold winter's eve.

Total comfort in a bowl.

That’s what this winter vegetable chowder is all about.

Corn, leeks and carrots give this hearty soup its fresh, summery flavor.

Make a large batch now and then freeze for up to six months.

If you do plan to freeze the soup.

Cook the corn for a few minutes less than called for.

As this will help them retain their crunch after the soup is reheated.
