Sooo good! And lower fat for sure! Try this recipe, you won't be disappointed!!
First time we made this. I would do it again and add a bit of pepper but that is me. Used 3 cups of whole milk instead of the low fat and heavy cream
This is a regular cold night dinner in our house. So easy and delicious. Easy enough for a week night meal.
Yum! I just finished eating this chowder. So, so, so good! Only change I made was to add carrots and 2 tsp. of minced garlic with the onions and celery. Oh, and I also forgot to pick up bacon when I was at the grocery store, so I obviously left that out. Just a note for those who may not think of it: if you use canned clams, you won't need to buy the bottled clam juice. You get enough from the cans. Next time, I may add a bit more clam juice -- I think I would prefer the base to have just slightly more clam flavor to it.
Excellent - made as written but toward the end I added a little extra salt and some garlic powder to bring out the flavors. This was a big hit in my house and perfect for a chilly night. The creaminess was just right for New England clam chowder. They didn't have any fresh clam strips at my grocery store but the guy at the seafood counter found me a 12-oz. container of frozen, chopped clams that worked perfectly when thawed. I served with a crusty whole-grain bread and oyster crackers. Definitely going to make again!
This recipe is fantastic. The comments I got on it were nothing but praise. I made a few edits. I added more thyme than what was marked as well as some basil (to add more flavor). I used two large cans of baby clams (for more protein, I think you could add more clams), which seemed to be the right size for the soup. I left out the bacon (and subsequent oil) and used half & half instead of heavy cream (to reduce the calories further). I'm not sure if anyone else noticed, but it looks like the calories are off. This recipes yields well over six heaping cups of soup, and one cup of soup is closer to 150 calories instead of 250 (according to the online recipe calories counter I used).
This was my first time making clam chowder. It was easy to make and it was so good. My husband said, "It tastes like more!" I added a small can of corn (rinsed) and some garlic. I will definitely make this again, and I will probably double it so we have lots of leftovers!!! Yummy!!!
