Heart-Healthy Potato and Corn Chowder | Recipe Treasure

Make the most of spring produce with potato and corn chowder and satisfy your soul with its sweet, rustic flavors. It is thick and creamy just like any other chowder but features a pleasant crunch of the veggies which adds a character to this soup. Being careful about my health, I opted for skimmed milk to keep it low in calories and hence heart-friendly. However, you may also use fat-free yogurt for a healthier version. Next time, I’m planning to grate reduced-fat cheese on top for added flavors and serve it in a bread bowl to add a touch of extravagance in dinner.
