Friends! I’m excited to share a new recipe with you all today courtesy of my partnership with ALDI: a healthy seafood chowder recipe with sweet potato.
It’s cold out there, so I figured a cozy, nourishing soup recipe would be welcomed.
This easy and healthy seafood chowder recipe is rich and creamy, but not super heavy like traditional chowder in that you won’t be left feeling like you need a nap 5 minutes later.
I know I’ve been sharing a lot of Instant Pot recipes lately, so for my readers who don’t have one, don’t worry – here’s a one pot meal that you don’t need an Instant Pot to make. 🙂
To make this cozy healthy seafood chowder recipe, first get yourself to an ALDI!
All the high-quality ingredients for this feast can be found in store. I especially love how many affordable organic options ALDI offers nowadays.
Once your fridge is stocked, step 1 of this recipe is to melt the ghee (clarified butter) in a large pot over medium heat.
Then, add the onion, peppers, garlic (hot tip: save time with the Simply Nature Organic Garlic Stir in Paste), thyme, and cayenne and cook until the vegetables are softened – about 5 minutes.
Then, toss in your diced sweet potatoes and corn and cook for another minute or so.
Next up: add the milk, then bring the mixture to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
Once the sweet potatoes are soft, you’ll want to puree a bit of the mixture to add some body/mouthfeel to the soup.
If you have an immersion blender, simply blend briefly/partially.
If you’re working with a regular blender, remove about 1/3 of the soup, blend it, and then pour it back in.
Now it’s time for the stars of the show: the Fremont Fish Market Bay Scallops and the Fresh Tilapia Fillets!
Now all there is left to do is enjoy!
I recommend savoring this healthy seafood chowder with a side of toast for dipping, like my fave Simply Nature Sprouted 7 Grain Bread, but you do you.
Feel free to toss some scallions on there for a little color, too.
Either way – I hope you enjoy this cozy chowder!
