Creamy Potato Chowder with Shrimp and Bacon (dairy-free) - Lexi's Clean Kitchen

This one-pot Creamy Potato Chowder with Shrimp and Bacon is the ultimate comfort food on a chilly evening! Paleo-friendly, loaded with veggies, and dairy-free (if you use the cashew cream option) for a completely guilt-free chowder option!

Creamy Potato Chowder with Shrimp and Bacon

Creamy Potato Chowder with Shrimp and Bacon

Here in New England, Chowder’s are our go-to bowl of comfort during chilly Summer and early Fall evenings! I wanted to create a chowder that was rich, creamy, guilt-free and great for any time of year, and am so excited to share this soup with you! If you love bacon as much as I do, this soup is a must-make! Creamy potatoes, perfectly cooked shrimp, and bits of bacon in every bite… soup perfection.

Potato Chowder Ingredients

Creamy Potato Chowder with Shrimp and BaconHow to Make Potato Chowder

I wanted to make this soup as easy as possible, to make this a perfect weeknight dinner option on this chilly fall days when you need to be warmed up a bit! To make it simple:

  1. Cook bacon and then drain the fat, and set aside. Next cook the shrimp, then set that aside, too.
  2. Cook the onion, garlic, potato celery and carrots until starting to soften.
  3. Next pour in chicken stock and make sure to scrape up all of the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  4. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once at a boil, add corn and turn down heat and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Whisk in cream of choice and taste and adjust seasoning.
  6. Serve in desired serving bowls. Top with roughly chopped shrimp, bacon pieces, parsley, thyme, scallions, and corn if using.

How to Make it Dairy Free

Cashew cream is a great way to make this creamy soup dairy-free. If you haven’t heard of cashew cream before, it is simply soaked cashews that are blended until they are smooth and creamy. It’s a great replacement for heavy cream It can be used for both savory or sweet recipes but also it’s just kind of delicious! To check out these easy directions for how to make this, check out this post.

Mulled Cider with Caramel Pecan Rim [no refined sugar] | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

Slow Cooker Mulled Cider with a Caramel Pecan Rim will be the hit of your parties or dinner parties all Fall and Winter long! The combination of the caramel and nutty pecans with the warming cider is perfection, and made with no added sugar.. Have it without any alcohol, or spike it as desired with your favorite liquor! Made in partnership with the American Pecan Council!

Mulled Cider with Caramel Pecan Rim | Lexi's Clean KitchenSlow Cooker Mulled Cider with Caramel Pecan Rim

No sugar added, simple to make, and definitely a new go-to drink when entertaining for the holidays! I put this out and let everyone add in their favorite alcohol: caramel vodka, brandy, bourbon, or wine!

Mulled Cider with Caramel Pecan Rim | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

If you love the combination of cinnamon + warm apple cider + a touch of cranberries, this is definitely a must-try! The best part? All you have to do is toss everything in a slow cooker and BOOM. Mulled cider perfection.

Mulled Cider with Caramel Pecan Rim | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

Get creative with this recipe for holiday entertaining by creating an individual spiked cider bar! Simply place liquor such as bourbon, red wine, or rum next to the slow cooker and let friends or family create their own spiked mulled cider beverage!

Mulled Cider with Caramel Pecan Rim | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

I’m back with another fabulous recipe in partnership with my friends at the American Pecan Council! Pecans are my favorite nut! They are lower in carbs and higher in fiber compared to many other nuts, and they’re a “good” source of monounsaturated fat, including the beneficial oleic acid that’s found in olive oil! A handful of pecans (about 19 halves) is a good source of fiber, thiamin, and zinc, and an excellent source of copper and manganese – a mineral that’s essential for metabolism and bone health. Plus, they have that yummy, buttery flavor! I love using pecan pieces to make my life easier during the chopping of them!

Scale This Recipe

Ingredients

    Mulled Cider Ingredients

    • 1.5 liters of fresh apple cider
    • 4 star anise
    • 3 cinnamon sticks, or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 orange thinly sliced, used half of the slices on serving glasses and 1/2 of the slices for the mulled cider
    • 1/2 lime, thinly sliced
    • 1-inch knob of ginger, skin removed
    • 1 cup fresh cranberries

    Pecan Caramel Rim

    Add-In Alcohol Options

    • Bourbon, 2 ounces per glass
    • Dark rum, 2 ounces per glass
    • White wine, to taste
    • Caramel Vodka or Regular Vodka, 2 ounces per glass

    Directions

    1. Place all mulled cider ingredients into a slow cooker. Set on low for 4 hours.

    2. While cider cooks, make a batch of caramel. Place coconut milk, vanilla, butter and sea salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Turn down heat to low and let simmer, whisking often, for about 30 minutes or until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Take off heat and let cool. Store in the refrigerator until the mulled cider is ready.

    3. Pour caramel onto a small, shallow plate.

    4. On a separate shallow plate, place crushed pecans.

    5. Dip your glass of choice in the caramel until the entire rim is well covered. Dip the caramel rim into the pecan mixture. Pour mulled cider into glasses and spike your drink with the desired alcohol if using, then stir and enjoy!

    Recipe Notes

    1. Storage: Leftover cider can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days.
    2. Make It On The Stovetop: Simmer the mulled cider ingredients in a large saucepan over low heat. Cover and let simmer for about 1 hour. Make sure that the cider stays at a low simmer, if it comes to a boil, the cider can separate!

    Finding a great on-the-go lunch that is both adult and kid-friendly is a hard task, but these DIY Lunch Pinwheels are just that! One-hundred percent customizable, easy to make-ahead, and a way to bring everyone around the table to make a meal together!

    DIY Lunch Pinwheels | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

    Although these pinwheels are perfect for school or work lunches, I cannot wait to make this DIY Pinwheel Spread for Football entertaining! I am excited to partner with Dietz & Watson for their Choose The Table campaign because I truly love the concept of more social and less media! Though my job has me on, almost all that time, I treasure the moments where I can shut off! Gathering around the table for a meal, to make lunch, to make a snack, and just chat and have some Face-time is truly so important!

    Lay out all of the ingredients and have your family members and/or friends create their own pinwheels! The perfect party pleaser for those picky eaters out there!

    I love how creative you can get with these pinwheels. Make a BLT pinwheel with turkey, or a Caprese BLT with pesto, or even an ultimate roasted veggie wrap pinwheel with all of your favorite Summer fixings… the options are endless!

    DIY Lunch Pinwheels | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

    Ingredients

      Wraps

      • 1 package gluten-free tortillas
      • 4 leaves romaine lettuce or collard greens, stemmed shaved
      • Flour tortillas
      • Homemade Tortillas

      Spread Ideas

      • 1/2 cup hummus
      • 1/2 cup pesto
      • 1/2 cup Dietz & Watson whole-grain mustard

      Meat Ideas

      • 1 pound organic turkey breast 
      • 1 pound sliced pepperoni
      • 1 pound sliced salami
      • 1 pound shredded rotisserie chicken
      • Sliced chicken breasts

      Veggie Ideas

      • Shredded lettuce
      • Tomatoes, sliced thin
      • Cucumbers, sliced thin
      • Alfalfa sprouts
      • Spinach, more as needed
      • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
      • 1 red onion, sliced thin
      • 1 eggplant, sliced into rounds and grilled
      • 1 zucchini or yellow squash, sliced into rounds and grilled

      Other Add-Ins

      • Bacon, cooked
      • Cheese, sliced or shredded
      • Pickled jalapeños
      • Sliced pickled pepperocini
      • Black beans, drained and rinsed
      • Roasted red peppers, sliced
      • Sundried Tomatoes, sliced

      Directions

      1. Place lettuce leaves, collard leaves, or tortillas of choice on a flat surface.
      2. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of your spread of choice onto the middle of your wrap.
      3. Add a few slices of meat and/or veggies on top of the spread in a straight line along the stem of the lettuce wrap or the long side of the tortilla.
      4. Lift the side of the tortilla closest to you and roll, using your fingers to make sure none of the filling falls out. If making a lettuce wrap, the stem should span the length of the whole roll. Before closing the roll, place a teaspoon of spread on the edge of the wrap. This will help the wrap stay together. Roll as tightly as possible for best results.
      5. Using a sharp knife, cut the wrap into 1-inch pieces.
      6. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve!

      Recipe Notes

      *You can use a toothpick to help the pinwheels stay together if they start to fall apart!

      This Four Ingredient Lightened Up Piña Colada is the perfect simple and refreshing Summer drink! Simply toss all of the ingredients into a blender, buzz, and sip!

      4 Ingredient Lightened Up Pina Colada | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

      I am so excited to partner with my friends at Pacific Foods to bring you today’s recipe. I love to lighten up dishes with their coconut milk instead of using canned coconut milk! It makes the dish, or cocktail, lighter, while still being super creamy!

      4 Ingredient Lightened Up Piña Colada

      We had so much fun testing this recipe. We could not get over how fun and customizable this drink was! Want to turn it into popsicles? Pour it into a popsicle mold, freeze overnight and devour! Want to spice it up a bit? Add some lemon or lime juice for an extra zing!

      4 Ingredient Lightened Up Pina Colada {Dairy-free, no added sugar} | Lexi's Clean KitchenNo added sugar, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly! A cocktail WIN in my book!

      This drink is GREAT without the rum as well for a cooling and flavorful Virgin Piña Colada! Simply ditch the rum to make these mocktails for the non-drinkers in your life!

      4 Ingredient Lightened Up Pina Colada | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

      Definitely, a new go-to Summer cocktail to make for weekend entertaining!

      Recipe Notes

      • *How to harboil eggs in an Instant Pot: Place 1 cup of water in your pressure cooker and add in a steamer insert. Place one layer of eggs onto the insert. Cover the Instant Pot. Click manual and set for 7 minutes on high pressure. After 7 minutes, release the quick release valve. Open the lid and using tongs place the eggs in a large bowl filled with ice-water. Gently peel off shell and store in the fridge until ready to use.
      • **How to steam hardboil eggs on the stovetop: Place 1-inch of water into a pot lined with a steamer insert. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add eggs and cook for 11 minutes. Remove eggs and place in a large bowl filled with ice-water. Gently peel off shell and store in the fridge until ready to use.
      • ***Caramelized onions: In a skillet heat 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter with onions. Sauté on medium-low heat until onions begin to caramelize and brown, but not burn. Yields about 1 cup of caramelized onions.

      And if you don’t have an Instant Pot, here’s my other favorite method! 

      Want to know something cool?  Genova has started a program called Digital Traceability and it’s pretty awesome. Genova customers simply enter the 10- to 15-digit number located on the bottom of their Yellowfin and Albacore tuna to receive answers to six specific questions:

      1. What is My Tuna? Visitors are given an initial description of their tuna or other seafood species.
      2. Where Was My Tuna Caught? These results include a world map showing the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Area where the tuna or other seafood was caught, and a link to a species-specific stock status report from the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF)
      3. What Fishing Method Was Used? This section includes both the fishing method and vessel size.
      4. What Fishing Vessel Caught My Tuna? This information includes fishing vessel name, nation of registry and fishing trip start and end dates.
      5. Where was My Tuna Processed and Canned? The can code indicates where the seafood was processed and canned, which may not necessarily be where it was caught. The processing method is subject to Genova’s strict compliance requirements andstringent Business Ethics and Labor Code of Conduct.
      6. How Does Genova Support Sustainability?

      I love working with companies who are doing their part to show us where our food is coming from!

      One Skillet Chicken Marsala (Gluten-Free) - Lexi's Clean Kitchen

      Growing up, Chicken Marsala was a staple in our house. My Mom made it often, and I never ever got sick of it! I am so excited finally share this cleaner and healthier version with you made with no white flour and made in ONE PAN. Serve it over gluten-free pasta or completely on its own!

      Chicken Marsala

      I am so excited to partner with my friends at Pacific Foods to bring you today’s recipe. The Organic Chicken Broth is a staple in my pantry! It adds such a great flavor to sauces, soups, and even when cooking rice. I even use it in the slurry used to thicken this dish instead of water!

       

      Chicken Marsala

      The flavors from the ‘breaded’ chicken, caramelized mushrooms, and Marsala reduction sauce make for a delicious take on this Italian-American classic! Paleo-friendly, gluten-free, and you only need ONE-PAN!

      Ingredients

      • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
      • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour
      • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt, more to taste
      • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
      • 2 tablespoons butter, more if needed
      • 2 shallots, minced
      • 2 garlic cloves, minced
      • 1 8 ounce container mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (1 1/2 cups)
      • 1 cup dry marsala wine
      • 1 cup Pacific Foods Chicken Broth
      • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
      • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, or 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
      • 1 teaspoon salt, more to taste
      • 1 teaspoon pepper, more to taste
      • Pinch red pepper flakes, more to taste
      • Fresh parsley, for garnish

      Slurry

      Directions

      1. Place arrowroot flour in a wide shallow bowl and set aside. Place chicken in a plastic bag, and using the flat side of a meat pounder or a rolling pin, gently pound chicken to 1/4 inch thick.
      2. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in the arrowroot flour, shaking off the excess flour. Transfer to a plate. Make sure there is a good amount of space between each piece of chicken on the plate.
      3. In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons butter and add chicken to the skillet. Working in batches, cook until brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside. Add more butter between batches if necessary.
      4. In the skillet, add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms have released their juices and browned. Should take about 8-12 minutes. Add shallots and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add more butter to the pan if needed.
      5. Add the masala wine and bring to a boil for 1-2 minutes, letting the alcohol burn out. Pour in the chicken broth, lemon juice, thyme, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and the slurry. Let cook down for 2-3 minutes.
      6. Place chicken back in the sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot over rice, pasta, or on its own!

        Ingredients

        • 1 batch paleo tart crust (also on page 70 of the Lexi’s Clean Kitchen Cookbook)
        • 1/2 bunch asparagus, sliced thinly. Slice a few lengthwise to top the quiche before baking for an added beautiful touch!
        • 1 cup fingerling potatoes, thinly sliced
        • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
        • 1 onion, diced, cooked until translucent
        • 1/2 cup leeks, diced, cooked until translucent
        • 1 cup red Swiss chard, both the leafy green and the stem, sliced thin and cooked until wilted.
        • 1 garlic clove, minced
        • 1/2 bunch Chives, sliced thin
        • 8 eggs
        • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
        • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
        • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
        • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

        Directions

        1. Prepare one batch of tart curst and place in the refrigerator to chill.
        2. Pre-heat the oven to 400 °F. Roast asparagus and potatoes for 30-40 minutes, or until fork tender. Broil for 1 minute at the end to add extra color to the vegetables.
        3. While vegetables are roasting, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add in onion, leek, swiss chard, and garlic. Cook until onions turn translucent and swiss chard begins to soften, about 3-5 minutes. Take off heat and set aside.
        4. In a medium mixing bowl, add roasted veggies, cooked onion mixture, eggs, paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir well.
        5. Bring the oven down to 350 °F. Grease desired tart pan, and gently press the chilled dough into the center, filling up the sides and the bottom. Par-bake for 5 minutes, just until the dough starts to rise. The dough should still be raw.
        6. Pour quiche mixture into tart pan. Garnish with chives and nicely cut asparagus. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the eggs have set.
        7. Garnish with additional chives, sea salt, and avocado. Serve warm!
