Vegetable Chowder

There is nothing better on a rainy cold day then a nice hot bowl of soup.  I really am not a big fan of soups made of broth... I am much more a chowder person.  I saw a recipe going around for vegetable chowder and had to try it.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onions
  • 2 sticks of celery chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 large russet potatoes diced
  • 3 tablespoons of whole wheat flour (if using regular flour I would start with one tablespoon)
  •  1/2 cup of water
  • 2/3 cup of milk
  • 2 cups of broccoli cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups of shredded sharp  cheddar cheese
Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium high heat melt your butter.
  2. Once butter is melted add carrots, onions and celery.  Saute for about 3 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  3. Add your garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add your chicken broth and potatoes and bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling cook until your potatoes are tender (about 10 minutes)
  6. Once potatoes are cooked in a separate bowl mix your flour and water and add to your pot.
  7. Simmer on medium low heat for about 10 minutes.
  8. Add your broccoli and mile and let simmer for another 5 minutes (or until broccoli is tender)
  9. Add your cheese and stir till cheese is combined.
  10. Enjoy!
