Non-Dairy Clam Chowder

It's been raining the last four days, so I have been seriously craving clam chowder- trouble is dairy has been really upsetting my stomach lately.  Hence this tasty creation!  If I'm gonna go without cream in my clam chowder a little bacon grease is allowed, no?  If that's too much work feel free to sub in margarine, but you'll be missing out on some delicious flavor!

  • 3 Tbs bacon grease
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups potatoes, diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 6 oz cans minced clams
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • green onion

  1. In a large sauce pot heat bacon grease over medium heat.  Add onions and garlic, and cook 3-5 minutes or until soft.  Sift in flour, stirring to incorporate.
  2. Add water, almond milk, thyme, parsley, clams and juice, and potatoes, cover and bring to a boil for 25-30 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender.
  3. Add corn, and cook another 5 minutes uncovered.
  4. Garnish with green onions, and serve.

Yields 4 servings.
