Creamy Chicken and Rice Chowder (Dairy Free)

Let me first say that I didn't know you could have a chowder that didn't have seafood. I did not know this. My father used to always get clam chowder when we ate at restaurants so I just assumed that chowder = creamy seafood soup. Apparently there are other chowders! Hence, this recipe here.

Originally I wanted to make a creamy soup, but in the end it turned out differently. This is what I love about experimenting in the kitchen. Mistakes can create greatness (this is what I keep telling myself anyways). And this time greatness it was: a tummy warming, satisfying and delicious chowder that my whole family loved. Everyone, including my husband raved about this meal... and no, that doesn't always happen. But when it does, I share the recipe with all of you.


  • 7 cups bone broth: recipe here
  • 2 cups cooked or leftover chicken
  • 2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 cans full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup brown rice/quinoa mix or just brown rice
  • 2 tsp sea salt


  1. In a large pot, heat bone broth over medium heat. Add chicken, cabbage, cauliflower and garlic. Cover and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk tapioca starch with one can of coconut milk. Add to pot with other can of coconut milk and rice/quinoa.
  3. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes - 1 hour until rice is cooked. Add sea salt and stir in.
  4. Enjoy!
