Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup oil, onion, celery, and bacon. Cook and stir until bacon fat renders and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes and clam juice. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Add clams and cook for 10 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup oil and flour in a separate saucepan over medium heat. Stir until paste-like and light golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in almond milk; cook and stir until mixture becomes a thick slurry, 6 to 7 minutes more.

  • Stir slurry into the chowder to thicken it. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Cook's Note:

Use 1 cup water in place of clam juice if preferred.

Dairy-Free Chowder, Fodmap Style Made this chowder without onions or celery to accommodate the low fodmap diet for IBS sufferers. It turned out much better than I expected. My non-IBS mate liked it fine, he noticed the lack of the vegs. Will make it again. Substituted or added: Hemp for almond milk (some can tolerate almond milk) Garlic infused olive oil and butter rather than just oil King Arthur All Purpose Flour (Gluten Free) Asafetida, almost like onion flavor, ? teaspoon MSG* Juice from canned clams rather than bottled clam juice Had Schär Gluten Free Table Crackers to put in chowder. Yumm *MSG is in just about everything; soups, fast foods (KFC), Doritos. It is not a health issue unless you suffer from an allergy. Read More
