    Kree's Note:

    I'm posting this for my mother. We recently returned from a trip to Cape Cod, where we were both very disappointed about not being able to eat the cream-filled clam chowder as a result of our IBS. This recipe is from my favorite cookbook, Eating for IBS by Heather van Vorous, and is completely dairy-free and delicious!

      Amazing! I used almond milk though and clam stock along with the juice from one of the clams. When it was done cooking I added a little flour to thicken and let it sit for 20 min. I put it in sourdough bread bowels and loved it!

      I had almost all the ingredients ready to go and realized I was out of clams. I substituted oysters and it was fabulous. I used small white potatoes so the time was increased to peel them all. Also I had brown rice flour on hand and used it.

      This turned out okayish. I used plain rice milk. It was much thicker and mushier than I expected. The flavors were also okay, a little boring. It was good the night we made it but didn't hold too well at all for left overs. I probably wouldn't make this again but it definitely seems like a good starting point. Thanks for sharing it!
