First post here on Cheftalk, I've heard a lot of good things. So been stalking different posters from the side line, ASMITH one of my favorites. Anyway, I posted today to see if anyone had any advice on creating a Health Conscious version of oyster stew. My recipe is pretty standard but I like potatoes 1 yellow onion medium or large (Love Onions) 1 cup of celery 2 cups of cubed potatoes 1 and 1/4 sticks of butter (sometimes just two sticks for personal meals) 3 cups of steamed oysters with their liquor/stock about a tablespoon salt and pepper 1/3 gallon of 2% half cup of half and half finishing touch chopped Parsley and Paprika for that look(sometimes for personal meals ill skip that too.) So what I'm really looking for is a very health conscious version of this, maybe skip the butter or something, if anyone has any advice just let me know. I'm really eager to see all those responses! thanks a bunch!
