I’m going to be talking about 3 of my favorite things in this post. Soup. Sweet potatoes. And slow cookers.
Make that 4 of my favorite things – how could I forget easy dinners! When Libby’s asked me to create an easy dinner recipe that cold be repurposed into lunch, I was in. Our lunches almost always consist of leftovers. Why cook twice, when you can do it once and have a second meal out of the deal?
This Veggie Chowder comes together really quick. The other thing I like about it, is that it’s a pantry meal. You can keep all of these things on hand, so you have the fixings for a fast dinner any time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Soup is an economical way to feed a crowd.
Hot bowls of Veggie Chowder make a satisfying dinner when you pair it with cornbread and salad. Don’t worry if you don’t have too many leftovers. You only need a ladle full to spoon over a baked sweet potato for lunch the next day.
Here’s the recipe, but keep reading to enter the giveaway!
