Corn and Tuna Chowder

"Throw this chowder together and let it simmer away while you get the rest of dinner ready and its nearly done. Not only that but this is a light and tasty soup! This is not a thick chowder - when I want to thicken it up a little I mix 2T cold water and 1T cornstarch together, add to simmering soup until thickened (don't bring soup to boil with milk in it though!)."

  1. I loved this super easy recipe and so did my family. I did make some minor changes - I used regular corn, not creamed, and soya milk instead of dairy milk. I added a good amount of paprika, some parsley, and green onions. I served it with grated cheese on top. It was yum! Thanks Brooke!
  2. Excellent recipe - I also add the juice of an orange and a little orange zest - it deepens the flavour. If you sprinkle a little mature cheddar on the top when serving it it gives the wow factor


<img src=> <br> <br>I have been a member of Zaar for awhile now and found that I love it! I have tried so many recipes and many new foods that I never would have without Zaar. <br> <br>I work full-time at a university in Wisconsin, it allows me to travel a bit and see the rest of the state, I work with a lot a great people and am really happy in my job. <br> <br>When I'm not working, I spend time with my hubby and 12 year old son. My son has picked up my love for cooking, a few of the things he makes are - naan bread, cookies, and quick breads, I'm so proud of him! In our family we also have two cocker spaniels, our puppy Laci (above) and Peanut, that we adore like they were our children. <br> <br>We live in an old farm house that we are remodeling (did the library and the kitchen so far....) on the outskirts of town. Close enough where my hubby can bike to work in the summer, but far enough away from campus that we don't have to lock down our lawn ornaments in fear of college pranks! <br><img src=> <br> <img src=> <img src=> <br><img src=> <br><img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src=> <img src= alt= Cilantro-May 2008> <img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=>
