Clam chowder for two

I've spent the last 3 weeks with my mother helping her prepare for surgery.  We've had some wonderful quality time together.  With slightly cooler weather and only the two of us to prepare meals for most days, I adapted this recipe for us. It's delicious and heart healthy.  Then I sat back and enjoyed watching her cheer and holler for the Dallas Mavericks...without much luck.

Clam Chowder for 2

  • 2 slices turkey bacon, diced.  Cook 3 minutes in a skillet sprayed with cooking oil until translucent
  • add 1/4 medium onion finely diced and browned
  • add 1 medium russet potato, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn kernels
  • add 1 can (10 oz) chopped clams with juice
  • add 1 cup water
Increase heat to high and bring to boil 20 minutes, until potato is soft.
Reduce heat to low, add:
  • 1/2 cup fat free milk
  • 1/2 cup fat free half and half
  • a big pinch of black pepper and  sea salt to taste.

Allow soup to simmer until slightly thickened.  Makes about 2 1/2 cups.


  1. This looks yummy! Perfect for the cold snowy day we have today.

    So nice of you to spend time with your mother preparing for her surgery. I'm sure she really appreciated it and enjoyed the quality time you got to spend together.

  2. Mmmmm your clam chowder sounds wonderful! It's one of my favorites, but I've never tried making it at home, I'll have to give it a try sometime! This looks amazing! Happy New Year!
