This is a vegetarian version of a clam chowder, but full of flavour and warming for a cold winter's day.

  • I will be tackling this one. Looks delicious. Thanks.


  • I’m looking forward to having this for dinner tonight!
    Thanks for sharing!


  • This corn chowder looks so healthy and filling it would be something I could definitely see myself cooking and enjoying, especially now in winter time.

    • Yes indeed, Mum,
      I had my first corn chowder in the wintertime when I visited my sister many moons ago in New Jersey, and I felt in love with it, plus New Jersey is a very exciting State of the USA (if you remember The Sopranos)
      Cheers, Missey

  • Chowder – whilst it’s a term I’ve heard on many American shows, it’s not something I associate with here. However, having read this recipe and its ingredients, I’m loving the thought of making this one.

    • Chowder is traditionally with a thicker consistency, and mainly potatoes in it.
      I was told it never has tomato in a Chowder, and in the olden days people used milk, cream or crackers to thicken the soup too.
      I haven’t seen it in Oz but it’s a pretty common soup in the USA and I had quite a bit over there when I visited my family.
      Hope you enjoy it, Missey


  • I’d definitely add fish into this and serve with chunky slices of bread covered in butter. Thanks for sharing.


  • A great one for lazy nights , could just add some fish easily to this.


  • Wow! Looks yummy! This looks like a great recipe!


  • Sounds like a real comfort soup that is easy to throw together. Thanks!
