Cauliflower Clam Chowder Cauliflower Clam Chowder Fab Food For Life
I know, cauliflower in clam chowder…sounds kind of weird. However, the cauliflower is how this recipe becomes creamy. It is so delicious. This recipe is great for those who are dairy intolerant. It’s also great for those who are looking for lower calorie recipes without losing any of the flavor.

  • Ingredients:
    6 6.5 ounce cans chopped clams packed in juice
    2 medium-large onions, chopped
    1 head cauliflower, organic
    12 ounce package bacon, nitrate free
    1 cup vegetable broth organic is best
    2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, minced
    sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Instructions:
  • In a large heavy bottom pot, cook bacon over medium-low heat until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set on a plate with paper towels. Leave the bacon fat in the pan. Once cooled, chop the bacon and reserve for later.

  • Add onions and increase heat to medium. Saute onions for a few minutes, until soft.

  • Add cauliflower and vegetable broth.

  • Place a strainer over the pot and pour the clams so that the juice runs through into the pot. Place the strainer with the clams aside.

  • Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to low and simmer, covered until cauliflower is soft. When you push into the cauliflower with a fork and it slides in with no effort, it is ready.

  • Use an immersion blender and puree the soup until smooth. If you do not have an immersion blender, place the ingredients into a blender in small batches.

  • Add clams, bacon, and parsley. Simmer for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
