Standard

We are in the middle of an ice storm so I thought a good hearty chowder & grilled cheese would be perfect for dinner! Not only was this easy to make & healthy, but it was also delicious!

Original recipe from http://www.damndelicious.net

Recipe makes 4 large servings
1 serving = 4 weight watchers points+ (only 3 if you don’t use the bacon garnish!)

Ingredients –
2 tbsp butter
1 yellow onion diced
2 carrots chopped
2 ribs celery chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 head cauliflower chopped
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup flour
4 cups fat free chicken broth
1 cup 2% milk
Salt & pepper to taste (I used about 2 tsp salt & 1 tsp pepper)
4 slices turkey bacon fried & chopped up for garnish
