2 Cozy Clam Chowder Recipes

September 24, 2011

Clam chowder (chow-dah, for those who are wondering) is a classic comfort food. Originating in the Northeast, this simple, hearty soup is perfect for a cozy meal at home in front of the fire.  Rich, creamy broth, packed with potatoes, veggies and creamified with heavy cream, nothing can compare to fresh New England style chowder served in a fresh sour dough bowl. On the other hand, fresh clams and a spicy tomato broth are what make Manhattan style chowder famous fare. While those of us with Celiac disease (or another type of gluten sensitivity) know that thick, creamy soups are more often than not on the "no" list, but not always. here are 2 great recipes to get your through the winter.

Vineyard Clam Chowder
A classic recipe straight from the Cape, this rich and creamy soup is naturally gluten free.

Manhattan Clam Chowder
A rich and spicy broth are the foundation of this recipe, making for a lighter (but equally hearty!) alternative to it's thick and creamy New England cousin.
