Reduced Sodium Clam & Bean Chowder

Submitted by: 60SIXTY

Introduction

By making this recipe with dried Great Northern Beans, I was able to decrease the sodium content considerably. I cooked a 16 oz bag of beans per directions. I used 1/3 of the cooked beans for this recipe. The other beans can be stored in the refrigerator and used on salads, or frozen for the next time this recipe is made.

Directions

Bag of great Northern Beans: label says 1/4 cup of dry beans = 1 serving. 13 servings per bag. I cooked according to bag directions, early in the morning. After cooked, I had 6 cups of cooked beans. I used 2 cups of the cooked beans for this recipe.

Warm the dutch oven to medium and spray interior with PAM spray. Cook the onion & celery until soft; do not brown. Measure 4 oz of the Turkey sausage and slice into bite-sized pieces.Brown in the dutch oven. Add PAM as needed.

Put half of the beans in blender & puree. Add the milk, & blend. Add this to the dutch oven with the sausage. Add the rest of the Beans & veggies if not already in pan. Add the I can't Believe it's Not Butter for richness & flavor. Add a whole Bay Leaf

Stir well & simmer until warm. Then add the clams with the juice in the can. Stir well & serve when warm.

Do not add salt if you want this to be low sodium.
