  • 3 large potatoes, or more to taste, diced

  • 3 carrots, or more to taste, diced

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 small red onion, diced

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 6 cups milk

  • 2 cups frozen corn

  • 1 cup skinned and boned cooked salmon, or more to taste

  • 1 cup frozen green beans

  • ½ cup frozen peas

  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dill

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.

  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add carrots, cover, and steam until softened, 4 to 6 minutes.

  3. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in flour until a smooth paste forms. Return to heat and pour in milk slowly, stirring constantly.

  4. Stir potatoes, carrots, corn, salmon, green beans, peas, salt, dill, and black pepper into the pot. Cook and stir until chowder thickens, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until green beans are tender, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose if preferred.

Use whatever vegetables you are in the mood for to create some variety. Use fresh vegetables instead of frozen if desired.
