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!

How to Make Corn, Potato & Leek Chowder


  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.
