I was going to suggest arrowroot or cornstarch as the thickener... I would also think that you could take instant mashed potatoes and use some of that to thicken it but it wouldn't be as smooth and creamy as if you made the roux with flour or cornstarch...

Gluten-Free Clam Chowder Recipe

4 slices bacon
1/2 large onion, chopped (about 1 Cup)
4 Cups diced potatoes
1 (8 oz.) bottle of clam juice
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 (6 oz.) cans of clams (one can minced clams, one can whole clams)
3 TBSP brown rice flour* (or 1 1/2 TBSP cornstarch or 2 TBSP arrowroot starch)
2 Cups half-and-half
1 Cup milk
* Since this is just used to thicken the soup, you can use a variety of flours or starches. We used superfinely ground brown rice flour, but cornstarch works very well, as does arrowroot starch.


In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium-low heat until crispy. Remove bacon and allow to drain on paper towels and cool.
Add onion to the saucepan and cook in the bacon fat. Cook the onion on medium heat until tender and translucent.
Add potatoes, clam juice, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender — about 15 minutes.
Then add the clams (with liquid) and half-and-half to the saucepan.
In a small bowl, whisk the flour (or starch) into the milk, and add to the saucepan.
Stirring frequently, cook over medium heat until the chowder thickens — about 5 minutes.
Crumble the cooked bacon and sprinkle on top of individual servings. Makes 4 – 6 servings, depending on your appetite.
