Shrimp & Corn Chowder
Very Good 4.2/5

Cookbook creator says: Haven't tried this yet -- To make it fast-appropriate substitute margarine for the butter and vegetable broth or bouillon for the chicken broth. (Creamed corn is okay -- it has no dairy in it.)

Incredible! 5.0/5
(5 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: To use this recipe on a non-olive-oil day, use nonstick spray and a little water. I also tried green cabbage, kidney beans, barley instead of orzo, and simmered everything for an hour. Very good!
