Garden Chowder

This is a recipe I got from Passionate Homemaking. It’s really great, easy to make and simple to make substitutions… which I did of course. Click the link above for the original recipe.

Use whatever vegetables you have on hand that sound good. Spinach, kale, beans, potatoes, etc.

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup each diced potato, celery, cauliflower, carrot and broccoli (bag of frozen veggies also works great!)
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup flour or arrowroot powder
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp of each the following spices: paprika, coriander, ground mustard (increase as desired)
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or other cheese)
  1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, saute onion and butter until tender.
  2. Add vegetables, water, chicken broth, salt and pepper; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  4. Combine flour and coconut milk until smooth; stir into pan. Allow to thicken at a low temperature.
  5. Add the parsley and other spices.
  6. Just before serving, stir in the cheese until melted.
