  • 6 pieces bacon
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoon almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 lb russet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 3 cans clams with juices


  • Heat a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and save for later.
  • Using the bacon fat, add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot and cook until the onion is translucent (a few minutes).
  • Add the almond flour and spices to the pot and stir well to combine.
  • Add the chopped potatoes, coconut milk and vegetable stock to the pot and turn down the heat to low. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
  • Add the clams, along with juice from the cans to the pot and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. When it's done, chop the cooked bacon and top the soup with it.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  1. Store this soup in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
  2. Feel free to add more or less bacon.
  3. If you can't have coconut milk use cashew milk instead.
