A hot creamy chowder with kabocha squash, using leftover ingredients from the fridge. Make the croutons with bread crusts!

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Bacon
100 to 150 g
Kabocha squash
1/8 (approx. 150 g)
Potato
1
Onion
1
Carrot
1/2
Butter

Milk

Steps

1. Cut the vegetables and bacon into 1 cm cubes.
2. Heat butter in a pot, and stir in the vegetables and bacon thoroughly.
3. Sift in the flour and stir, being careful not to let it burn.
4. Pour in the water, milk, and chicken powder... bring to a boil, and once the vegetables soften, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
5. Cut the bread into 1 cm cubes and spread out on a heat-resistant container so that they don't overlap. Heat for 1 to 3 minutes in the microwave (600W) uncovered and the croutons are done.
