New England Clam Chowder
OK, it's easy to make a delicious New England clam chowder using heavy cream, because all that fat gives it great taste and texture. This soup achieves all that with just a fraction of the saturated fat.

New England Clam Chowder
This is a healthy alternative to heavy cream-laden clam chowder.
Enjoy it -- guilt free!

Soup ingredients:
1-2 Tbs. olive oil
4-5 strips cooked 'n' crumbled bacon
2-3 onions, chopped
4  medium red potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 stalks celery chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 6-oz. cans chopped clams
8 oz. clam broth
1 pint fat-free half & half
1 Tbs. flour
8 oz. milk
2 bay leaves
sea salt, pepper and a touch of cayenne (or 1/2 cap liquid crab boil) if you want a little kick
1/2-1 lb. fresh or thawed frozen clam meat or:
1 lb. live mussels, steamed

-In a large soup pot, combine olive oil, onions, celery and garlic and cook on medium 5 minutes or so.
-Add potatoes, stir fry till potatoes start to brown. Add clam broth, fluid from canned clams, crumbled bacon, bay leaves, sea salt, pepper and cayenne (crab boil).
-Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer at least 20 minutes.
-Whisk together half and half, milk and flour. Add to pot and cook at medium-high for a couple of minutes, until it thickens.
-Add canned clams plus clam meat or mussels and cook on  medium for a couple of minutes while stirring - not too long or else the clams will get overcooked and rubbery.
-Add water or clam broth if needed to get good consistency.

Recipe makes 5-6 pints. Enjoy!
