I am going to say this out loud and proud, this clam chowder is one of the best clam chowders out there and one of the best parts, it’s lightened up with oat milk! It is also chunky, being made with fresh vegetables and canned chopped clams.
Making this soup is easier than you might think. It requires pantry staples, even when it comes to the clams. I prefer to use canned clams because it’s much easier, plus it’s great because it does not compromise the quality or taste. But, you can definitely use fresh clams if you prefer! Oh, and did I mention this is a 30 minute soup? You can easily have lunch, dinner or game day fuel on the table in less than an hour.
If you are looking to elevate your soup experience and you are carb obsessed like me, serve the soup in sourdough bread bowls. The combination of being able to tear, scoop or dunk the bread with the soup makes eating this that much more enjoyable.
Now, I will let you in on my secret on where I sourced the bread bowls: hello panera! I’ve found that grocery stores do not sell these in my area and I choose to not bake the bread myself. With that being said, I took a nice little drive over to the Panera drive thru and got 3 of them for $5! You’re welcome. No bread bowls though, no problem. The clam chowder is great on it’s own.
When it comes to the time of year, I would eat this all day everyday. Whether the sun is shining, it’s cloudy with a fall breeze or there is snow on the ground, this is perfect at any time of the year. As we settle more and more into the cold weather season, that just means more of this Pretty Plate Clam Chowder on repeat.

Get in loser, we're going to enjoy some carbs. Preferably sourdough bread that is made into a soup bowl. This New England Clam Chowder Bread Bowl is so good for the soul. It’s creamy, heartwarming and filled with luscious clams, vegetables & potatoes
