Corn, Potato & Leek Chowder

This is my favorite soup to make on that first really chilly day of fall. It's called a chowder, but it's not a super heavy, creamy soup. Plus, it's a hearty healthy meal!

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
butter
2
leeks (about 3/4 lbs), cleaned and sliced
2
carrots, diced
1
celery stalk, chopped
1/2 lb
baking potatoes, peeled and diced
4 c
chicken broth, low-fat
1 c
water
1/2 tsp
dried thyme
1/2 tsp
salt
pepper, to taste
10 oz
frozen corn kernels, thawed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt butter in a nonstick Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add leeks, carrots and celery. Cook until leeks soften, about 5 minutes.
2
Add potatoes, broth, water, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes.
3
Add corn and simmer about 2 minutes more. Mash lightly to break up potatoes to make a more creamy soup, if desired.
