Healthy Meals Monday: Chunky Potato Crab Chowder

There is nothing better than warming up with a hot bowl of soup, on a cold winter day. This Chunky Potato Crab Chowder is so easy to make and full of amazing flavor. It comes together quickly and will soon be a family favorite, it your home too.

Last week was our FIRST SNOW here in Missouri.
My girls were so excited. It brought back a little reminder of home, in Utah. Nothing goes better with a first snow than a bowl of nice warm soup.
I grew up loving clam chowder but my mother in law introduced me to Crab Chowder and we LOVE it (even more than the Clam Chowder). The flavor is better, and I love the texture.
This recipe is low in calories and fat and still has that creamy texture.
I love eating it in a bread bowl, but here in Missouri, they don’t know what bread bowls are. So we used a normal bowl and dipped our bread in it – which was still delicious.
This is a simple recipe your family is sure to love, and it hardly takes any time to throw together. It’s healthy, fast, simple, and delicious.

what is a good bread recipe I could use for dipping, in my soup?

Bread and soup are my love language. You can’t have one without the other. They just pair so perfectly together. If you need a delicious bread recipe to dip in your soup, here are a few of my favorite:

Easy Garlic Breadsticks
30 Minute Dinner Rolls
Whole Wheat Bread
Cheesy Jalapeno Garlic Bread
Zesty Cheese Bread

could i replace the flour with a substitute flour?

You could easily replace the flour, with an alternative flour.

For this recipe, we do not recommend using coconut flour. Whole Wheat flour would be best for this recipe. You may also want to only add a little at a time, because whole wheat flour is thicker and you won’t need as much.
