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
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
- Put the carrot, chili and onion into a pot, season with salt and pepper, then saute until onion starts to turn translucent.
- Cut up the cod and add it to the pot for a few minutes to start the cooking.
- 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.
- 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!
