No one in my family could get enough of this soup tonight for dinner. It was quick to make, used up all sorts of little bits left in the fridge, and was deliciously warming after a cold day of errands. This recipe is exclusive to The Meals Maven.
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 c. chopped uncooked bacon
2 carrots, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
5 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 medium potato, diced
1 c. corn
1 c. leftover mashed potatoes
1 can whole baby clams, drained
1 can chopped clams, drained
3 c. chicken or turkey stock, heated, plus additional 2-3 c. additional stock or water (desired consistency)
1/3 c. half and half cream
1 tsp savoury
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
4 green onions, sliced, for garnish
Combine onion and bacon until bacon is cooked and onions are browning. Add carrots, celery, garlic, potato, and spices. Stir to combine and brown for a few minutes, then add chicken stock. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked. Add corn, mashed potatoes, and clams, and simmer just until heated, a few minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the cream. Garnish each bowl with chopped green onions.
Edited to Add: additional stock
