Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

I don’t know why I really fond of making soup all the time, maybe I’m lazy. I like to make few more portions in one go, so I can freeze them in separated containers with individual labels. Any time, if I have limited of time or feel exhausted , I know I still can have some home made soup to fill me up.

Vegetable Chowder is one of my family’s favourite soup . It is creamy, comporting and full of good vegetables that are good for us, Do you know that children can’t recognize that they’re eating vegetables, shhhhh :p
