Garlic and Herb Bread

  1. Rub the cut side of the garlic clove on each hamburger bun. Butter and sprinkle with the herbs.
  2. Pour the chowder into bowls. Garnish with thin strips of zucchini. Sprinkle with herbs.


Buttery and sweet hamburger buns make a delicious, lobster roll-inspired side for this soup. It can also be served with toasted baguette.
