1. Prepare vegetable stock (optional)
  2. Make soup
  3. Chop cilantro and chives
Corn chowder
This soup is so filling you don’t need much else for dinner! Fish chowder might intimidate people and is usually very heavy and fattening. This is my lighter and healthier version and I promise if you buy fresh fish, there is nothing fishy about this soup.

Notes & Tips:

Making your own vegetable stock is SO easy. Here is what you do: Save all your vegetable peels and scraps; onion peels, carrots peels, sweet potato peels (anything except peppers) and add water to them. Let it boil for 1 - 2 hours, strain it and use it! If you don’t have peels and still want to make your own, just add onions, celery, carrots, sweet potatoes, ginger and anything else you want to throw in and boil it for an hour or so and you will have stock! And if you still don’t want to do any of that you can just use water, it will just be a bit less flavorful.

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

This soup is amazing the next day, but beware it thickens! If you like thicker soups, feel free to even put it over rice and have a whole new dish. If you like it thinner, just add a bit more vegetable stock or water and salt to taste.
