You better grab some of these healthy Clams in Spanish Cider and Sofrito Broth before my little one eats them all. You can see her trying to grab one in the photo below. This child loves clams. It amazes me how many she can gobble up. She was so happy to help me take the picture, because she knew I would let her eat the one she was holding. I also love clams for dinner, because they are so easy. I put the broth together earlier in the day. Then I poured the clean clams in and covered the pot. A few minutes later, the clams are done. They really are so easy even though they can seem daunting. Once you make them, you will be a clam lover for life. No longer will you fear cooking these delicious mollusks.
I developed this broth after eating clams at a local restaurant known for Spanish tapas. I quizzed our server about the ingredients then came home and made it myself. The key is to get some Spanish hard cider. Hard cider means that it has alcohol in it. Yes, you can use a low sugar regular apple cider if you do not want alcohol in it. You can also use a good quality American hard cider, if you cannot find a Spanish one. Hard cider has become quite popular so it should be fairly easy to find. I’ve been making these throughout the year and finally got a picture to share with you.
Feel like you are taking a trip to Spain with these delicious clams. Clams are naturally low fat, low carb and high protein. This recipe is also gluten-free and low calorie. It will taste sumptuous and leave you satiated. Put on a pot of clams and watch them disappear in minutes.
