Light Seafood Chowder

250ml PUREHARVEST Rice Milk
150ml dry white wine (fish stock or water if preferred)
500g fresh mussels, cleaned and  de-beard (optional)
1tbsp Olive or coconut Oil
115g rindless, streaky bacon, chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
500ml vegetable stock
400g potatoes, peeled and cubed
350g boneless, skinless firm white fish fillets, cut into small chunks
150g frozen baby peas or corn.
350g cooked shrimps, pealed
115g Gouda cheese, cut into small cubes
3tbsp freshly chopped chives
  • Place the mussels in a large pan, pour over the wine (stock or water if preferred), cover and cook for approximately 4 minutes until all the mussels are open. Drain and reserve the liquid. When cool enough to handle remove the mussels from their shells.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan and cook the bacon and onion for 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute.
  • Pour in the stock and reserved mussel liquid and bring to the boil. Add the potatoes and simmer for 8 minutes. Stir in the cubed fish and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  • Pour in the PUREHARVEST Rice Milk, peas/corn, mussels, prawns and warm through. (I sometimes add 150g (6oz) of shredded smoked fish for additional flavour at this stage)
  • Stir in the cheese and chives and season to taste. Pour into warm serving bowls and serve.
