Lindsay’s Garden Chowder

January 15, 2009 at 4:05 am 6 comments

I saw this recipe on Lindsay’s blog, Passionate Homemaking…and I knew I had to try it! I did tweak her original recipe a bit for our tastes … and it was soooooo yummy (the recipe below is the way we made it).  We all LOVED it. I made the agave vegan cornbread muffins to go with it…a perfect pairing. This will definitely be going into our regular rotation. It made enough for the three of us to have it for supper and lunch the next day.

Lindsay’s Garden Chowder
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup butter or Earth Balance
1 1/2 cups potato, diced
2 cups cau­li­flower, chopped
1-2 carrots, sliced
2 cups broc­coli, chopped
6 cups vegetable broth
1 tea­spoon salt (more to taste)
3 garlic cloves
1/4 tea­spoon pepper
1/2 cup flour or arrow­root powder (optional)
1 – 1 1/2 cups unsweetened soy or almond milk
1 T minced fresh pars­ley (optional)
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t corian­der
1/4 t ground mus­tard (increase as desired)
1 cup shred­ded cheese (stir in 1/2 cup just before serving, and top with the remainder)

In a Dutch oven or large pot, saute green pepper, onion and butter until tender. Add veg­eta­bles, water, bouil­lon, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 min­utes or until the veg­eta­bles are tender. Com­bine flour and milk until smooth; stir into pan. Allow to thicken at a low tem­per­a­ture. Add the pars­ley and other spices and allow to simmer for 5 more minutes. Just before serv­ing, stir in the cheese until melted. Yield: 6-8 servings.

    This looks so yummy! I’m just curious – are you still eating a semi raw foods diet? And if not, is is because you’re pregnant and your body is just wanting different things, or because you’re no longer on the road, or because it’s winter? Just curious. Sorry to sound nosy! And I’m not judging whatsoever. I’m not vegan myself, at all, but I found myself super inspired to eat that way when you were posting lots of yummy raw vegan recipes. Now I’m super inspired to make yummy and warming soups! 🙂 I do try to eat at least one huge raw salad every day, but it’s hard to find fresh, local produce this time of year.

    Ha – I just looked back at some of your earlier posts and see that you’ve already answered my question about raw vegan diet and pregnancy! I’m finally getting time to catch up on blogs! Ok – off to get stuff to make a TLT sandwich now! I’m seriously craving one!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
