Shrimp and Veggie Lovers' Chowder

Contributed by: NAPSA

Cooked Shrimp, Vegetables Make A "Soup-er" Supper (NAPSA) - "Soup of the evening, beautiful soup!" exclaimed the Mock Turtle in Lewis Carol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The Mock Turtle might have been referring to Shrimp and Veggie Lovers' Chowder, a rich and colorful medley of shrimp, corn, broccoli, carrots and cheese.

Chowders are known for being meals-in-themselves, needing few accompaniments. Refrigerated cornbread twists or crusty bakery rolls and bagged salad greens with bottled dressing round out the menu. Some fresh fruit for dessert, and presto-you've got a warm, satisfying, low-fat dinner.

Pre-cooked shrimp and frozen broccoli (or broccoli florets from the salad bar or bag) keep prep time to a minimum. While the chowder simmers and the bread warms, help the kids with their homework or return a phone call while you occasionally monitor the meal. You don't need to stand over the stove continuously to make this special seafood soup.


  • 2 1/2 cups cubed, peeled potato
  • 2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn, divided
  • 1 cup chopped, peeled carrot
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen broccoli cuts
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1 (10 oz.) package frozen cooked shrimp
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese


Combine potato, 1 cup corn, carrot, garlic and chicken broth in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until potato is tender, stirring frequently. Transfer to a food processor; process until smooth. Return puree to Dutch oven; add remaining corn and broccoli.

Cover and cook 10 minutes.

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a small bowl; gradually add milk, stirring constantly until smooth. Stir into chowder. Add frozen shrimp. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat; Add cheddar cheese and stir until cheese is melted.


One 8-oz. package of surimi seafood OR 8 oz. fresh or pasteurized crabmeat, or a mixture of both.
