I love a nice creamy chowder but the problem is they all tend to be high in fat as well as calories. My mission last week was to make a healthier Corn Chowder version.
As you may know I’m not a big fan of milk anyway, cream on the other hand is a no brainer. Come on, who doesn’t love cream. I didn’t have cream or cows milk, only almond and soy in the fridge so I am cutting out the majority of the fat already. I was off to a great start with creating a healthy version of Corn Chowder
This corn chowder also eliminated the traditional thickening base of potato and flour. Another big hit on the calorie intake. I blended the corn with the soy to make the creamy milky chowder. Accessing my ingredients in the pantry, quinoa and beans stood out too. Out with the quinoa and white beans as well.
Now if you are trying to eat health for less this corn chowder recipe will do the trick. It will also give you the cozy sensation of the warm creamy comfort food that I was craving that day.
Here is the low fat and and inexpensive healthy Corn Chowder recipe:
