Salmon Sweet Potato Chowder
This recipe is another one that a client introduced me to, and then I altered it. I've been craving it and making it a lot this winter. So creamy and comforting, with lots of veggies and protein - its a one pot/one bowl dinner! Perfect for postpartum...
2T oil, ghee, or butter Salt and pepper to taste 1 chopped onion (leave this out if your baby is sensitive to alliums in your breastmilk) 1 chopped sweet potato (any type/color. Garnet Yams and White Japanese sweet potatoes work well) 2-3 chopped zucchini 1 qt bone broth 1 pound of salmon 1 bag of frozen corn kernels (optional) 1 can coconut milk optional- fresh cilantro
Melt oil in a soup pot.
Add chopped veggies, salt and pepper, and cook until soft.
Add broth and bring to a boil.
Add salmon on top of soup.
Cover and cook for a few minutes until the salmon is done.
Remove the salmon and purée the veggies and broth. I use an immersion blender or dump it all into a regular blender)
Shred the salmon and add it back into the soup.
Add corn and coconut milk.
Serve hot with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro
Savor and enjoy!
