Our creamy New England-style chowder offers a nourishing main with deep flavours and luscious textures—and whole cod fillets that infuse the soup with seafaring goodness! After popping the herbed butternut squash into the oven to roast, sauté mirepoix (diced onion, celery and carrot) in a buttery base. To this simmering pot, add Worcestershire sauce for tang and a hit of apple cider vinegar for that sweetly-tart edge, then the cod fillets, until they become tender and flaky. Serve up this no-fuss chowder with a salad of baby greens and julienned beets—crowning both soup and salad with the golden squash nuggets.

Roast the squash
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Pick ½ the thyme leaves off the stems, discarding the stems. On a lined sheet pan, toss the butternut squash with the thyme leaves and a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 15 to 18 minutes, stirring halfway through, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork.

Make the chowder
While the squash roasts, in a medium pot, heat 2 tbsp butter on medium (use a large pot and double the butter for 4 portions). Add the flour and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until a paste forms. Add the mirepoix. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until beginning to soften; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the milk, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar and 1 cup water (double the vinegar and water for 4 portions). Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer, 2 to 3 minutes (4 to 5 minutes for 4 portions), until slightly reduced. Season with S&P.

Make the salad
While the cod cooks, pick the remaining thyme leaves off the stems, discarding the stems. In a large bowl, combine the remaining apple cider vinegar with 5 tbsp oil (9 tbsp oil for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add the baby greens, beets and ⅓ of the roasted squash; toss to combine.
