Gluten-free, dairy-free New England clam chowder, from GFE Gluten Free Easily

Gluten-free, dairy-free New England clam chowder, from GFE Gluten Free Easily.

As a New England girl, I'm partial to traditional chowders made in the traditional way, but for those who eat gluten-free, chowders thickened with flour can pose a real danger to their health. Shirley, who writes GFE Gluten Free Easily, takes the worry out of this classic soup with her recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free New England clam chowder. It's got all of the classic ingredients, including plenty of clams and potatoes, with a rich base thickened with gluten-free flour. In my part of the world, clam chowder is a year-round treat, but I love it most in summer, with some farm-fresh ears of corn on the side.

Chicken and kale soup, from House of Annie

Chicken and kale soup, from House of Annie (on Soup Chick).

When it comes to chili, I'm no purist. Chili can have beans, or not. It can have beef, or not. As long as it's spicy, I'm okay with it. "White" chili, made without red meat or red beans, really appeals to me; the milder flavor of the turkey really lets the sultry, musky chili flavors shine through. This quick-and-easy white chili with turkey and cannellini beans, from Andrea Meyers, gets a bit of smoke from chipotle chili powder and cumin. Use leftover turkey or rotisserie turkey breast from the market. Like all chilis, you can make this white chili ahead and freeze it.
