Veggie Chowder

Packed with potatoes, carrots and corn, this soup is a great healthy dinner choice. It's not too heavy, so it also makes a nice light partner for a sandwich. —Vicki Kerr, Portland, Maine

    Oh my, was looking for a veggie recipe for the stupid kids that think they are vegetarian. GO figure, you think BACON is a vegetable! Please change your post. You wasted my time and many others with this fake post.

    Made this evening for dinner. Had to add salt and used whole kernel corn rather than creamed but it was pretty good and I’d make again. Thanks!

    I just made this soup for the second time. It really benefits from a couple dashes of Frank’s red hot. It is the perfect accompaniment to sandwiches.

    This is a good, easy to make chowder. You can use any veggies in place of the potatoes and carrots. Always good with any veggies. Nice chowder to make for a weeknight dish.
