Morehart's Clam Chowder
I highly recommend utilizing a food processor for the chopping/mincing of the vegetables. Also, please note that this soup comes in very handy with sneaking vegetables into picky eaters! I know that my own mother would sneak in pureed carrots aka 'orange powder' more often than not. Just know that this recipe is highly customizable and very filling. It also freezes well.
If the soup becomes too thick, you can thin it with milk and readjust the seasonings.
