Say it, say chowdah!

We've been making nothing but soup lately.

I wanted to make vegan corn chowder, but we were out of some of the ingredients. Instead, this is Zach's favorite corn chowder. Apparently it is a recipe from a book published in 1940 called "The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedia of Cooking and Homemaking". I don't have a cookbook nearly that cool, but I do have the internet (this was #32142 on Recipezaar).

It isn't vegan, but it is vegetarian, and it is delicious!

Corn Chowdah (adapted from Recipezaar.com, #32142)
1 1/2 cup water
2 large potatoes (diced)
1 small onion (diced - mine ended up in the blender, I hate onion chunks)
2 cups frozen corn
1 tablespoon margarine
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon water
salt & pepper (to taste)

Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil, then add everything except for the last three ingredients (milk, flour, tablespoon of water). Boil until the veggies are tender. Mix the flour and water together until there are no lumps, and add it to the soup. Add the milk. We added a little kale, too. Bring back to a boil, and cook it for 10 more minutes. Serve, and enjoy!
