Slow Cooker Corn Chowder Warms The Soul

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder Warms The Soul

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder warms the soul as the weather turns cooler.

 

Soup is one of the dishes that make the world a better place. This slow cooker corn chowder is a good candidate for world harmony. It warms the soul as the weather starts to turn cooler. And as we busy ourselves with fall activities, the slow cooker recipe makes dinner healthy and easy for us. Corn chowder is a hearty vegetarian meal.

The recipe is easy and straightforward. Red potatoes, frozen corn, vegetable broth, spices, unsalted butter, and heavy cream. Most items are already in your pantry or freezer. I use red potatoes and heavy cream, but that is what I had on hand when I decided to make the recipe. Regular potatoes and any milk, but skim would work in this recipe. Key to the potatoes is to have them diced small so they will cook. Once you dice the potatoes (and perhaps your grocery store has diced potatoes), this is a dump and go slow cooker meal. A kind of slow cooker meal I like.

Fall makes you wanna cook (insert food here)…

Fall makes you wanna cook (insert food here)…


Fall makes me wanna cook soup. Yup, that’s the food I’d fill the blank with.

I have to admit it and without shame that I am a cold weather person. I relish in wearing sweaters, lighting fires, and cooking warm hearty food.

I love soup. It is one of the most perfect meals. Quick. Easy. And nourishes both the stomach and the soul. Nothing soothes better than a steaming hot bowl of soup. Soup forces you slow down and just enjoy the moment. Like having a cup of tea.

The largest section in my recipe binder is for soups (then comes desserts close behind it.) I’ve got many favorite soups. In fact, too many to mention: spicy sausage with ravioli (pictured above), potato leek, cheddar cauliflower, or spicy black bean. During the cold weather months, I try to keep ingredients handy such as broth, sausages, pastas, and beans.

So when the weather turns cool, what is your favorite food to cook?
