Cheesy vegetable chowder

I ate chowder for the first time in San Francisco....The way it was served at many stalls along the pier caught my attention...Most of the stalls sold clam chowder in a cute bread bowl...There were a few selling tomato chowder as well....I liked the soup as it was very fulfilling and hearty...When I searched for the recipe,this one from http://luluthebaker.blogspot.com looked almost close....I am not a very big fan of sea food, so this veggie option was the obvious choice...So here is the recipe...


All you need is

Butter- 2 tbsp
Onion-1  (chopped )
Carrot-1 ( sliced )
Garlic-3 cloves (crushed )
Potatoes-2 (cubed)
Chicken stock-4 cups (You can use vegetable stock as well, or plain water if you have no stock....)
All purpose flour-1 tbsp
Milk-1 cup
Broccoli-2 cups
Water-1cup
Parmesan cheese- 2cups
Red chili flakes-1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Method of preparation

Heat butter in a big saucepan and saute onions and carrots for 2-3 minutes
Add crushed garlic and chicken stock
Let it boil
Add the potato cubes
Cover and cook till potatoes are done
Dissolve all purpose flour in milk and add it to the pan
Add the water and broccoli florets and cook till broccoli are tender
Add the cheese and let it melt
Add chili flakes and mix well
Serve hot with bread


The chowder turned out very cheesy and yummy...It was perfect for a comforting dinner....We had it with slices of  french loaf...Try it out..

  2. Perfect chowder to be dipped with the toasted bread. Maybe I thought I can do away with the chicken stock and goes in veg stock to make it more of a vegetarian dish.
