Delicious healthy fish chowder

Standard

Fish chowder is one of those things that I LOVE. It’s totally a guilty pleasure, full of dairy and potatoes and fish and other deliciousness. If I see it on a menu, I feel almost compelled to order it, but the madness had to end. I set out to make a version I could enjoy and feel a little less guilty about.

This version… this version is delicious, creamy, and so guilt free it could be eaten every day with a clean conscious. It has a slight hit of heat, but certainly not enough to overpower the delicate flavor of the fish. Roasted garlic lends an earthy flavor without the overpowering flavor of onion, and by roasting the cauliflower it brings out some subtle nuttiness.

I forgot an ingredients picture (whoops!) but I DID get a new lens for the old camera for my birthday. (Thanks Dad!!!) There is still a learning curve, but I think the pictures have improved!

Thai-esque chicken stew

Standard

This recipe has a somewhat similar flavor profile to the Asian style chicken soup I made when this blog was fresh and new and shiny. However, it has quite a bit more kick, and is more of a stew than anything. In other words, it’s super stinkin’ tasty, and really filling and satisfying and soul warming. Just what the doctor ordered when feeling cruddy or in need of some comfort. Plus, it’s made in the slow cooker, so it’s mostly wicked easy.

Mushroom soup with beef, bacon, and spinach meatballs

Standard

This soup may not be pretty… (Okay, it’s TOTALLY not pretty, but that’s okay.) but HOLY MOLY it is delicious. The soup itself is delicious and creamy and rich, and AMAZINGLY healthy. It tastes decadent and rich, but there isn’t so much as a drop of cream in there. The little meatballs add some protein to make it a delicious AND filling meal, perfect for a winter day.

Asian style chicken soup

Standard

This sure isn’t Papa’s chicken soup, but it’s tasty! I promise, I’ll have some recipes that aren’t Asian flavored soon. The broth of this soup isn’t aggressive. The aromatics make it subtly floral, spicy, salty, and creamy. The basic recipe can be dolled up, like most of my recipes. It actually can be whipped up pretty quickly, and is perfect for lunches. (Coconut substitutions are provided.)
