Ingredients For Your Cheesy Vegetable Chowder
1. 2 Tablespoons butter.
2. 1/2 cup chopped onion.
3. 1 cup finely chopped carrot
4. 1 celery stick, finely chopped.
5. 1 Tablespoon minced garlic.
6. 4 cups chicken broth.
7. 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped.
8. 1 Tablespoon flour.
9. 1/2 cup water.
10. 2/3 cup milk.
11. 2 cups chopped broccoli.
12. 2 heaping cups shredded cheddar cheese.
Crisp cooked crumbled bacon for garnish.
Melt the butter in a large soup pot. Add onions, carrots, and celery and saute over medium heat until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 or 2 additional minutes. Add chicken broth and potatoes, bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender. Mix flour with water, add, and simmer until soup is slightly thickened. Add milk and broccoli and cook until broccoli is just tender and soup is heated through. Stir in cheese, allow to melt, and serve.
Instructions For The Crock Pot Or Slow Cooker
You can make this soup up through adding the flour and then after finishing that step pour the soup into a large crock pot or slow cooker. If you make it in the crock pot or slow cooker set the temperature setting to high and cook about three hours on high. In the last hour of cooking time add the milk, broccoli, and in the last 20 minutes add in the cheese. I like to serve this chowder in big soup bowls and I almost always serve hot French Bread that I have cut into hunks and brushed with garlic butter. It is so delicious with big hunks of toasted brown garlic bread.
This is truly some of the best soup or chowder that your ever going to eat in your life. I don't think your going to find a more delicious or easier recipe for Cheesy Vegetable Chowder any where. I hope you get to make this chowder real soon.
Tip About Broccoli
When your in a hurry stand a bunch of fresh broccoli upside down, and use a chef's knife to trim the florets into bite size pieces. These tender crowns will cook quickly though.
Crock Pot, Crock Pot is the brand name of an electrical appliance known a a slow cooker that simmers food slowly for several hours. It generally takes about twice as long to cook food in a slow cooker on the low heat setting as on the high setting. Also, resist lifting the lid, each time the lid is removed it can add 30 minutes to the cooking time. So resist the urge to raise the lid and peek.
A slow cooker is an electrical appliance that allows a meal to be cooked while you're away from home. Most slow cookers are made of thick stoneware, and the slow cooker bowl or crock is surrounded by an enclosed heating system. The low temperature gently simmers food for hours unattended. Slow cookers range in size from 1 - 6 quarts, and some models have a removable liner that is dishwasher safe. These are the best models.
