Salmon Chowder

This is one of my favourite soups. It is easy to make, super filling and it is full of omega 3s.  It is not exactly under 30 min recipe but if you do a bigger portion you can freeze it well and have it served on your table in few min.

10 min prepation time

30-40 min cooking time

  3. Add the celery, turnips or cauliflower and chicken broth and simmer until the vegetables are almost tender, about 5–7 minutes.
