My addition of Parmesan cheese to this chowder added a great depth of flavor! Add shrimp, clams or crab if you choose, but is delish as is! A wonderful bowl of comfort! Enjoy!

How To Make

  • 1
    In a Dutch oven, bring water to a boil. To this add potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and celery. Simmer until vegetables are tender.
  • 2
    While veggies are cooking, make the white sauce. In a medium saucepan, add butter, melt over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, leaving no lumps, stirring constantly for a few minutes.
  • 3
    Slowly add in the milk and stir often until thickened. Stir in parsley. Set aside.
  • 4
    Once veggies are tender, add corn. Next stir in Parmesan cheese until melted.
  • 5
    Pour in the white sauce, stir until thoroughly combined. Taste for seasoning, add if needed. I added a little Cajun spice to ours. Can add clams, shrimp or even crab for a nice chowder. Yum! Glad I decided to try this with Parmesan...delish! Note: this will thicken quite a bit when cool, just reheat by adding some milk or water.
