Crab Chowder with Snow Peas Recipe

4 servings

This aromatic chowder gets its flavor essence from jasmine rice, gingerroot, and sorrel.



2 cups clam juice

2 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup jasmine or basmati rice

2 green onions, sliced

1 tablespoon minced gingerroot

2 cans lump crabmeat

2 cups each: snow peas, halved crosswise, torn sorrel or kale leaves

1 tablespoon dry sherry (optional)

1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk

Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat clam juice and water to boiling in large saucepan. Stir in rice, green onions, and gingerroot; reduced heat and simmer, covered, until rice is tender about 25 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients, except salt and pepper, simmer until snow peas are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
