Your family will love this dairy free salmon chowder recipe! When I grew up, there was meat on the table at every dinner. I don’t mean little bits of meat buried in a casserole or a stew, my family was purely a meat, potatoes and vegetable type of family. When I moved out on my own, it was only natural that I made the same types of meals that I grew up with.

As I grew up, I realized that my country’s meat and potato lifestyle took a huge toll on our planet. It takes a lot of land and a lot of resources to grow, feed, and slaughter all of the animals that we rely on to put meat on the table every night. Making a few meatless or less meat meals each week can certainly help especially if more people adopt a Meatless Monday tradition in their home.

For those that cannot entirely give up some sort of traditional protein, fish that is sustainably caught can be a good option. This Dairy Free Salmon Chowder Recipe is made with coconut milk but if your family prefers, you can use traditional dairy milk instead. To make this Paleo, remove the corn and substitute broccoli instead.

Looking for gluten free crackers to go along with this soup? These are our favorite. They’re vegan too.

  1. This looks delicious! My son is currently on a dairy free diet, so I am looking for meals that make substitutions for the dairy. I have never tried vegetarian bacon, but it sounds like a great alternative.
