  • Was very yummy. I doubled it for my family of 5. I didn’t have fennel.

  • How can it be ready in 2 minutes if you simmer for 10?

  • Just made a variation of this tonight. No Fennel, and used a sweet potato instead of a red potato. Didn’t use Chili powder, but cumin and cayenne in it’s place. Turned out fantastic!

  • On my browser is says "ready in 22 minutes"

  • Yes, put them in with the carrots after the blend.

  • The ingredient list calls for 2 cups of corn, but the instructions only call for adding in 1 cup of corn? I assume you put the second cup of corn in at the end after the blend. That is what I am going to do, here is to hoping I am right.

  • Added the potatoes after returning the pot. We like to add shredded chicken for some protein. Very delicious and easy dish!

  • Instead of cooking it in a pot has anyone just used the blendtec

  • It says 22 minutes but I’m going to increase the garlic to 6-8 cloves, and instead of 2 cup broth do 1 cup broth and 1 cup coconut milk (used in place of 2 cup heavy cream or half and half cream), I’m adding 1 cup of minced clams (3 cups total with 2 more after the blending process), I’m adding 1/4 cup of bacon bits I’m adding 1 teaspoon of coarse ground black pepper, I’m adding 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, I’m adding 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped, 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, I’m also removing the chili powder and replacing it with Cheyenne pepper, all of this in the step to be done during the first cooking process so it can go in during the blending process then during the return to the pot I’m then adding 2 cup of minced clams so it’s La Vonne’s Healthy Vegetable Clam Chowder.

  • Was delicious (didn’t have fennel)

    Louise on

  • Very good, I substituted fresh Red Pepper for the carrots and used a combination of purified water and coconut milk for the broth. I also added some turmeric for kicks.

    Brian on

  • You didn’t make this recipe at all! XD
