When There’s This Much Snow, Create Soup

I live in Attleboro, MA and we have gotten several blizzards in a row. Although we have a lot of snow here and if you want some, I’ll gladly ship it to you, but I have friends on the South Shore (Weymouth, Hingham, Holbrook, etc..) and they have far more than me….up to 28″ in some areas. No thanks. Well, with snow comes freezing cold temps. Today I decided to warm up the house by creating a soup. My husband and oldest daughter are lactose intollerant but one of their favorite soups is corn chowder, so a few years ago I created a milk free corn chowder. Today I made it even better. How???

So here’s a list of ingredients…btw I’m not very good at writing recipes.

Celery, Cabbage, Potatoes, Onions, Garlic, Corn, Chicken Stock, Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes, Thyme, Chicken Apple Sausage

So I started heating up the chicken stock and at the same time I diced the sausage and sauted it. I cut up all the veggies and added them to the broth once the sausage was done I added them to the soup. Then I added the spices. I did this in my Le Creuset (knockoff), best thing ever! I put it on low and let it sit there for about an 1 1/2-2 hours. One last thing, I added a ploop of organic soy free milk free butter. Then I had my husband taste test it. He LOVED it! Of course he said it tasted just like corn chowder, just no milk.

So if you are stuck inside because of the snow or if you just love soup, try my recipe out or create your own and then share it here.

Enjoy and stay warm!
