I made this recipe as the first course for the Paleo Porn Family Dinner and it was a big hit!
It is filling too, so if you find yourself cooking for some vegetarian friends or family members, this is a great dish to serve. You don’t even have to tell them it’s Paleo.
Vegan Vs. Paleo
Many people would have you believe that the Paleo crowd and the vegetarian/vegan crowd are mortal enemies, but that is not true.
The animal product issue is a highly contentious one, but aside from that, we have a lot in common.
- We’re both health conscious.
- We tend to exercise, avoid smoking and avoid drinking alcohol in excess.
- We both tend to value organic over conventional produce.
- We also agree that lots of vegetables are good for you
…and that’s where this chowder comes in to play.
Kid Friendly Too
If you have kids that don’t want to eat their vegetables, or if you’re just sick of making salads, this vegetable chowder is a great way to get your veggies in (whether it’s served to you and/or your kids).
It’s full of flavor, it doesn’t look like vegetables, and small children can be easily fooled.
This soup is a much better option than any of those canned soup varieties that add unwanted ingredients and definitely won’t stock as many vegetables as I’ve included.
Stock Up On Soup This Winter
This Paleo Chowder is tasty enough to be kid-friendly, and with winter coming, it’ll keep you warm on those cold January days.
I’m a fan of salads all year round, but you can definitely change it up and keep warm at the same time with this veggie-filled soup. After all, part of living a Paleo lifestyle includes eating seasonally. And the root vegetables used in this recipe make great use of winter vegetables especially since they keep so well.
