Corn Chowder

I got this recipe on the Spark People site. I had to alter the flour to be gluten free. I used Domata Living Flour for the two table spoons. I also added my own extra spices. I added more salt and pepper than the recipe called for, I  did it based on the taste of the soup. I also added crushed red pepper (about three good shakes - nice measuring, eh?), a couple shakes of garlic powder, and oregano leaves. I added a few sprinkles of Monterrey Jack cheese. It was fantastic! It was was 186 calories before I added the cheese,so I'm guess its right at 200 calories per serving, which is one cup. It was very easy to make. My husband liked it too and added chicken to his, he said it was really good that way too.

  • 2 tablespoons finely diced celery
