It was my pleasure today to find some creative inspiration at my local grocery store in the form of a half of a pound of cod. I’d been recently wondering about my avoidance of the kitchen and was a little bit concerned that I’d lost my kitchen mojo, thankfully those worries were for naught and I’m pleased to share the result of my inspiration.

Cod & Kale Chowder

Ingredients

1 small carrot chopped
1/4 Anaheim chili chopped
1/4 sweet onion chopped
2 big leaves of kale chopped
1/2 lb. cod filet cut into 1.5 inch cubes
1 small gold potato diced
salt & pepper to taste along with the following: garlic salt, onion powder, parsley, bay seasoning
1 1/2c. water
1/3 c. low-fat milk

Directions

  1. Put the carrot, chili and onion into a pot, season with salt and pepper, then saute until onion starts to turn translucent.
  2. Cut up the cod and add it to the pot for a few minutes to start the cooking.
  3. Add potato and kale and seasonings to taste, then cover with hot water. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the potato’s are fork tender.
  4. Add the milk, taste to see if there’s enough seasoning, then turn off the heat and enjoy.

I ate mine with a serving of Special K snack crips in sea salt flavor. Mmmmm!
