"This chowder was wonderful! I did add a little marjoram and nutmeg, which my husband and I really enjoyed. A nice "meatless" meal and something I'll definitely make again!"

"With a few changes this is a 5 star recipe. I used half and half, added 2 tbs. butter with the olive oil when sauteing the onions, replaced canned corn with frozen, and upped the salt. Delicious soup that the whole family enjoyed."

"Great, easy to follow recipe. I did doctor it a bit to my liking by adding chopped cooked bacon and extra seasoning like paprika and garlic powder, and I definitely upped the salt and pepper ratios. I also decreased the amount of flour and just pureed half the soup to give it a thicker texture. I will definitely be making it again and love that it is a great base to add whatever you may lie. I may try it with some ham mixed in next time as well."

"Good taste, but way too much flour for me; it made it much too heavy. Will make it again but will use less flour or leave it out altogether."
