Very Creamy Vegetable Chowder a la Moosewood

Very Creamy Vegetable Chowder a la Moosewood created by DeeDee

This soup is sweet and mild and filled with enough vegetables for one meal, so serve it with a peppery little salad for contrast. This is another Moosewood cookbook original!

directions

  • In a large soup pot on medium heat, sauté the onions in the butter and oil for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Stir in the celery, cover, and cook until just soft, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the carrots, potatoes, water or stock, thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil; then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes.
  • With a strainer or slotted spoon, remove about 1 1/2 cups of the cooked vegetables and set aside in a blender or food processor.
  • Add the green beans, bell peppers, and zucchini to the soup pot and cook until the green beans are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the peas and parsley, simmer for 2 more minutes, and then remove from the heat.
  • Discard the bay leaf.
  • Puree the reserved vegetables with the milk and cheeses to make a smooth sauce.
  • Stir the sauce into the soup and gently reheat.
  • Serve hot.

    Doubled the recipe. Made vegan with Miyokos butter, Trader Joe’s vegan cashew dip, used Arriabata tomato sauce, and Daiya shredded cheese. Separated 2 cups soup to blend with my immersion blender to thicken it and make the base even more flavorful. Let it simmer. Thank you so much! This was the favorite of our church’s soup supper—many rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I cut all into bite sized pieces. Making this again tonight. Yum!

    Has anyone tried making this in the crockpot?

    Very tasty, even the carnivore hubby loved it, and no processed cheese.

    This is delicious. Added a can of northern beans for some protein, skipped the cheddar to cut down on calories, skipped the parsley as I didn't have any, subbed 1/4 c cottage cheese for the cream cheese and used water instead of stock to cut down on salt. Very tasty and flavorful soup! Thanks!
