Seafood Chowder Nummy for the Tummy on Cold Days

With the winter coming, soups become standard fare at our table. There is nothing more satisfying than a bowl of seafood chowder to warm your tummy.

I grew up on the east coast with an abundance of fish. Mom used to make seafood chowder on a regular basis during the cold winter days. There was nothing more welcoming after a cold school bus ride home than the smell of seafood chowder on the stove.

Mom used to add lard and make the base with flour. So I adapted this recipe to make it gluten free and meat free.


  • 1/2 sweet onion cut finely
  • 2 cloves garlic cut finely
  • 1 cup celery cut in small bite size pieces
  • 2 cups of potatoes cut in small bite size pieces
  • 1 cup raw shelled raw shrimp cut in half
  • 4 fillets of sole cut in bite size pieces
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1/2 cup milk

Melt butter in 8 liter pot. Fry the onions, garlic and celery til cooked. Add 4 liters of water. Add potatoes, shrimp, sole and bouillon cube. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer until potatoes are cooked.

Dissolve cornstarch with 1/4 cup of cold water. Add 1/4 cup of broth and mix with cornstarch. Dump into the pot and stir the soup. Take the 1/2 cup of milk and mix with 1/2 cup of broth. Add to the soup and stir.

Let the soup burgle away and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve when ready… just nummy to the tummy.
