Nutritious Salmon Chowder with Wild Rice Cooked in Clay

Nutritious Salmon Chowder with Wild Rice Cooked in Clay

As the weather warms, I've been on the hunt for more soup, chowder and stew recipes. They're warming, nutrient-dense, filling, and downright delicious. What's not to love?

Soups and stews are a great snack or mini-meal, or a great side or appetizer for a full meal. Whether you're planning a holiday get-together, a family meal or just want to cook several dishes to heat-and-serve throughout the week, soups are a great go-to option.

I love this recipe not only because it is delicious, but it combines several very nutritious ingredients and it is a one-pot recipe; easy to prepare, cook, and clean up.I'm not sure it gets any better than that!

I love using VitaClay for this type of dish, because it's safe and easy to just throw everything in the pot. When I get home, a delicious meal is waiting for me!

  • 1┬áT thickener (corn starch, arrowroot powder)

Just made and will make again. I used the Vitaclay for the rice as well. Love my vita clay. The potatoes needed an extra 20 minutes to soften before I added the fish and rice back in.
