This simple chowder combines everyday winter ingredients. You can use about 8 cups (2 L) torn Swiss chard leaves instead of spinach.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 carrots
  • 3 leeks (white and light green parts only)
  • 1 thick slice ham (6 oz/175 g)
  • 2 lbs small red-skinned potatoes scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cup wide egg noodles
  • 1 pkg (10 oz/284 g) fresh spinach
  • 1 cup finely shredded Gruyere or extra-old Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Method

Cut carrots into 1-1/2 inch (4 cm) lengths. Cut leeks lengthwise almost but not all the way to root end; spreading leaves, flush out grit under water. Cut crosswise into 1 1/2 inch (4 cm) lengths. Cut ham into 3/4 inch (2 cm) chunks. Halve or quarter potatoes; set aside.

In large Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat; sauté carrots, leeks, ham and onion until leeks and onion are softened, about 8 minutes.

Add potatoes, 4 cups (1 L) water and salt; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are just tender, about 20 minutes.

Add milk; bring to simmer. Stir in noodles and spinach; simmer, uncovered, until noodles are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in cheese and pepper.
