After reading a particularly yummy looking recipe for crab chowder (and realizing I had those pesky few celery stalks expiring) I decided to give it a go.
This recipe grabbed me because of the simple ingredients, fairly quick time and low calorie content in a chowder (?!) Yes please! 🙂
Nutritional Information for 1.5 c. serving (makes 6) as directed.
I even made mine with skim milk rather than the 2% they instruct and did not add any salt so it was a bit healthier and still so delicious.
It was also really easy and cost-efficient by mixing few expensive ingredients like real crab with on-hand, cheap ingredients like celery, spices and canned creamed corn. My creamed corn (which I would never eat by the way but Jeremy loves, so this was a great way to use it) was faaancy, see?
It came together wonderfully and smelled fabulous. Look at this ladle full of goodness.
Including prep/chopping time, it took me around 45 minutes to get this into bowls.
Jeremy was anxiously awaiting the final product with saltines in-hand. We both really enjoyed it while watching Black Swan (which is another post altogether, wowza).
So what about you guys? What did you try today? Any new recipes you’ve made?
