It’s cold season, and FH and I are both under the weather. So Monday, I made an enormous pot of Mom’s Corn Chowder, which I swear has actual magic in it or something. Anyway, in case anyone else is ill (or just in the mood for tasty soup) I thought I would share.
1 tbsp. oil
1 c. chopped onion
2 c. diced potatoes (skin on or off, your choice)
1 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. chopped carrots
3 c. chicken stock or veg stock (I actually use turkey stock most often)
2 c. frozen corn
1 can creamed corn
1 c. milk (I am dairy-free, so I use almond milk. Use whatever.)
In a large saucepan heat oil, and cook onion for 1 minute. Add potatoes, celery, and carrots. Cook for two minutes. Pour in chicken stock, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 5-8 mins or until the vegetables are tender. Add corn, creamed corn, and milk. Heat through and serve.
This recipe I think makes about 6-8 servings, depending on how big your bowls are. Truthfully, I don’t really measure anything anyway, and you can use whatever other veg you want – go nuts and enjoy it. I love this with a hot scone or cornbread.

Printing this out! do you think this would work in a crockpot/slow cooker?

@lina010: I don’t see why not, on a low setting. I’ve never done it that way, but I think it would work out. Let me know how it goes if you try it!
@housebee: Oh that’s an awesome idea! If it works, maybe post the bread bowl recipe on the thread!
I forgot to add – When I served this last night, I added some green onion to the top as well, which gave it a bit more colour, and a sprinkle of rosemary, because rosemary is delicious.

This sounds awesome. I woke up feeling like poo this morning. I’m probably leaving work early so I can sleep.. but I’m for sure going to stop at the store on the way to pick up the stuff for this to make for dinner later on.
