What Is Corn Chowder?

Corn chowder is a thick soup that is perfect for a chilly fall or winter day. Corn is used as a replacement in the common form of chowder usually containing clams or other forms of seafood. It is usually made from a clear stock, with added thickeners such as cornstarch or tomato paste or sauce. A variety of vegetables are also added in addition to the corn, including potatoes, onions, peas, carrots, and a variety of spices and herbs. Low calorie corn chowder can be made by adding just the variety of vegetables, which makes for a healthy dish on its own, but for added substance (and some fat!) pork, chicken, or meat can also be added.

What to Eat With Corn Chowder?

Corn chowder by itself has a thick texture that doesn’t require it to be eaten with anything else. If you do want to add a little something, however, pouring some over a slice of whole-wheat bread is an option. Grated cheddar and other forms of cheese are also common additions over a steaming bowl of this dish, as well as sour cream. Consider swapping sour cream for yogurt for a healthier option, or just enjoy the dish on its own!
