We always have a large quantity of broccoli and cauliflower stalks hanging around from other recipes. I slice off the outer fibrous side of the stems (all the green part for the broccoli) and chop the stalks into ¼-inch chunks. If you do not have leftover stems available, you can add more celery at the end of the cooking process, about 10 minutes before the chowder is done, or you can add chayote, kohlrabi, turnips, yellow beets, or fennel. I find the more vegetables in this soup, the better it tastes. If you’re caught with a bounty of fresh thyme and dill, this soup is also a great way of making use of them.
This is excellent! To make the soup quicker, I use a can of creamed corn and a can of regular corn.
Has anyone froze this yummy soup?
I freeze some every time I make it. Too much for 2 people. Freezes just fine.
easy (especially if you use a blender wand rather than the blender method) and delicious.
Most excellent ‘chowder’. I did not use corn cobs, I used frozen sweet corn. Dee-licious!
I love how creamy this chowder is. I used all cauliflower. I blended all of the soup until almost puréed. Very satisfying.
My family and I devoured this dish immediately! Added extra potatoes (on accident but ended up perfect) and blended four cups of the soup to make it extra thick! This is a nice, light, yet flavorful dish and am looking forward to making it again!
This chowder was delicious
