I'm in a real seafood mood at the moment. Did you see my recent lobster tail recipe? Sooo good! I'm eating lots of shrimp, too – see all my low carb shrimp recipes!

I found a can of chopped clams in the cupboard the other day and decided to make a low carb version of a clam chowder. It's naturally thickened with pureed cauliflower, and loaded with buttery mushrooms!

How to Make Low Carb Clam Chowder with Mushrooms

Roughly chop some raw cauliflower and add it to a large saucepan together with some chicken broth (I love Kettle & Fire bone broth – SO good!) and unsweetened almond milk.

Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt some butter in a large skillet and add some sliced white mushrooms. Cook until tender.

Carefully  transfer the cauliflower and liquid to a blender and blend until smooth. Return it to the saucepan, and add the mushrooms, a can of chopped clams INCLUDING THE LIQUID (sorry, had to write that in capitals in case you thought of draining it!), and some heavy cream. Warm through, then test for seasoning, adding salt and pepper as necessary.

This is a wonderful filling lunch for two people – but carb count may be a little high for some at 9g net per serving of half the recipe. I recommend making it into three portions – it reheats very well if necessary!

Thanks so much for this recipe! My grandpa always made clam chowder growing up, it has a special place in my heart and I haven't been able to eat it for years. I'm so excited to try this!
