Vegetable cheese chowder, from Salad in a Jar
According to Paula of Salad in a Jar, this vegetable cheese chowder tastes best when you crumble fresh cornbread into it with both hands. Cheese and cornbread: how comforting does that sound? With a base of carrots and potatoes, I think you could add any vegetables to this soup. The recipe calls for American cheese; if you have grated Cheddar in your freezer, or a nice block of fontina, or any good melting cheese, you can substitute with confidence. Just don't forget the cornbread.
