  • 1/4 tsp.  ground black pepper
  • 2 (6.5 oz.) cans minced clams
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream or use half and half, 1% milk, or any type of dairy free milk you like.  If you use rice milk it will make the soup a bit sweet.

Chef Notes:

*You can also use russet potatoes.  I prefer red potatoes because they have a lower glycemic index.
