Ingredients

  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 2 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped into small pieces
  3. 1 pound red or white russet potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
  4. 1 large Vidalia or yellow onion, diced
  5. 2 celery ribs, diced
  6. 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  7. 1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
  8. 1 tablespoon celery seeds
  9. 1/4 cup rice flour
  10. 2 8-ounce cans minced clams
  11. 1/2 cup dry white wine
  12. 2 cups bottled clam juice
  13. 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  14. 1 cup almond milk
  15. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  16. 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  17. 2 dozen littleneck clams, scrubbed
  18. 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  19. Salt
  20. Pepper, freshly ground

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the bacon, and cook until the fat is rendered and the bacon begins to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the potatoes, onion, celery, garlic, Old Bay seasoning, and celery seeds. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion and celery are translucent, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle the rice flour over the vegetables, and stir for 1 minute to make a roux. Add the canned minced clams and wine, stirring well to combine. Pour in the clam juice, broth, milk, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Bring the soup to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 45 minutes.
  3. Add the whole clams and the dill, cover the pot, and cook until the clams open, 8 to 10 minutes. Discard any unopened shells. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
