I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a creamy bowl of Clam Chowder! I’ve been making this chowder for several years and I am really excited to share this recipe with you! Not only is this excellent made with dairy milk, but if you prefer to avoid dairy – I promise it’s equally excellent with coconut milk instead! (I have a casein allergy and tested the coconut milk version on a group of 4 hungry hunters – they LOVED it! Couldn’t even tell it was dairy free!) How do you like your soup?? I like LOTS of stuff in my soup, almost stew — So although I started out this recipe using just one can of each minced and chopped clams – I now use 2 of each – I LOVE a clam chowder thats FULL OF CLAMS, don’t you!?!? Oh – and in this pretty picture (below) I did add some steamed clams to make it pretty, but you don’t have to.. if you WANT to just steam them until they pop open then add them to your chowder as garnish!! … know what’s funny??? this pic is on a ratty old bench on my back porch and I LOVE the texture! If you’re currently doing a 21DSD, leave out the potatoes and use arrowroot powder – it will still be super yummy!
