How do I make this clam chowder recipe?
In a deep pot, cook the bacon on medium heat until crispy.
Once it’s crispy, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel and set aside until the end.
Drizzle olive oil into the pot to add to the bacon fat.
Add the onion, chopped radishes or celery root, or potatoes, and saute for a few minutes until they start getting soft.
Add in the garlic and celery.
Saute until softened.
Add in the chicken broth and clam juice. Stir to combine.
Simmer with the lid cracked for about 20 minutes or until the radishes, potatoes, or celery root are the desired doneness.
Stir in the heavy cream.
Add the clams with the juice. Stir.
Add in the mascarpone cheese or creme fresh. Stir until it melts.
Simmer a few more minutes until heated through.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Remove from the heat and stir in the butter to finish the soup.
Ladle into a bowl and garnish with the crispy bacon and chopped parsley if desired.
Since this recipe is keto, there is no flour to make a roux so it is not as thick as traditional chowder. However, it checks all the boxes for flavor and craving satisfaction!
