Growing up on the east coast, seafood chowder is THE chowder you can find at restaurants. I never really liked it, and preferred potato or corn chowder to any sort of clam/lobster variety. I have an amazing classic east coast potato chowder recipe in my cookbook, but since it is almost fall I decided to infuse some pumpkin into this one!
A cozy, pumpkin-infused potato chowder that feels like a warm belly hug.
1/2 white onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp oil
8 medium potatoes, chopped (I like red skin potatoes)
3 cups veggie broth
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried sage
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup pumpkin puree (I use canned)
1 cup coconut milk
In a large pot on medium heat, add the oil, onions and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are translucent. This takes about 5 minutes.
Add the potatoes, veggie broth, thyme, sage, salt and pepper. If you are using low sodium broth, start with about 1/2 tsp salt. If your broth already has a lot of salt, wait and add salt at the end. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium/low and cover. Simmer about 8 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender.
Once potatoes are cooked, add the pumpkin and coconut milk and stir to combine. Simmer a few more minutes, add any extra salt and pepper you want, then serve.
