If you haven’t read the bone broth post you may want to check that out first..
Now are you ready for a soup so flavorful that it’ll blow your mind?
No need to go any further..Piggy Tummy has got your back!
I decided I wanted a creamy soup that did not taste like coconut. I am new to Paleo and sometimes it starts to make me a little coco-nutty…see? it’s kicking in again..
I decided to make another chicken bone broth and try to make a creamy soup using cauliflower to cream it up instead of coconut milk. I was a little bit nervous about the texture being a little gritty from the cauliflower. It was far from it! It was super creamy and had the perfect mouth feel and flavor of a sinful cream soup.
Paleo Clam Chowder
- About 6 cups of bone broth – depending on the thickness you want your soup
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 2 cans of clams
- 1 bottle clam juice
- 1 cup onion
- 1 cup carrot
- 1 cup celery
- 1 cup mushroom
- 1/2 lb bacon
- salt, pepper & hot sauce to taste
Fry up the bacon, chop it up and set aside (save that bacon fat! its GOLD!) Chop up 1 head of cauliflower and add just enough bone broth to cover the top of the cauliflower. Once the cauliflower is fork tender use a stick blender to puree to desired texture. I mixed mine extra long to make sure it wasnt gritty. I added the clam juice at this point to thin out the mixture and added more bone broth to desired texture. Transfer bone broth/cauliflower mixture to another bowl and add enough bacon fat to the pot to saute vegetables. Saute until tender and add creamed mixture back to the pot on low (otherwise it bubbles up on you). Add bacon and clams and season to taste.
This soup was so good it made me weep tears of joy.
