In light of today’s primary and because we love potatoes and the satisfaction from a days’ good work, we chose to have Garlic & Leek Chowder in Sourdough bowls. Wow!
Basic Recipe, Chowder: Yields 12cups
- Garlic to taste
- 1 hefty yellow onion
- 1 good sized leek
- 1 Italian green pepper (the long skinny kind)
- 6 small-medium potatoes
- 1tbs butter
- 1tbs olive oil
- 3-5c water
- 1/4c half & half
- 1/4c milk
- Seasonings: I used paprika, salt, pepper & Cavender’s Greek Seasoning
Stir fry all vegetables according to firmness in heated olive oil. Add water to cover. Add potatoes. Boil until potatoes are soft then blend 3/4 of the stew and return to pot. Add cream, butter, milk & spices.
We like to have a big salad with dinner. This one has my favorite flavor combination of sweet, crisp apples and red onion. Also it has some chopped tomato and paper-thin slices of aged artisan cheese and Justin’s special home made vinaigrette.
