This is the classic New England Clam Chowder. To keep this soup low calorie, it is thickened with puréed vegetables. The bacon is optional but it sure adds a great flavour.
taste nothing like clam chowder...just soup! i don't reccomend making this recipe. good clam chowder is hard to come by. - 31 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
