We loved this chowder! Very quick, easy and delicious- - you don't have to be a diabetic to enjoy! I added a splash of extra virgin olive oil and a splash of local chardonnay, and got a big thumbs up from DH! Will make again, but won't add the clams until the last few minutes of cooking next time. Thanks Moirianne! Made for the January Lite & Low-Fat (Healthy) photos forum event.
This was positively YUMMY! Will definitely make it again and again! Thanks!
