New England Clam Chowder (Lactose Free

Submitted by: ZIONESSS

Introduction

I have loved clam chowder since childhood, but the traditional high fat, cream-based recipe just kills me. Here, with the easy substitution of soy or rice milk for dairy, a traditional classic becomes perfectly safe, not to mention simply delicious. Soups and chowders are also a great way to safely add plenty of insoluble fiber from fresh veggies, so don't skimp on the carrots and celery. Their fiber will be much easier to digest after the long, slow cooking time. I have loved clam chowder since childhood, but the traditional high fat, cream-based recipe just kills me.

In a large stockpot heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and carrots and saute until softened. Gradually sift in the flour, stirring thoroughly and scraping bottom of pan. Very gradually stir in the clam broth, scraping sides and bottom of pan to make sure flour is thoroughly incorporated without clumping. Stir in rice milk until mixture is smooth.
