Clam Chowder

I made up this recipe when we were trying to eat more iron in our diets.  I don't have any idea how much iron it actually contains, but it's a yummy clam chowder regardless!

Clam Chowder

32 oz box Trader Joe's Garden Veggie Patch Soup
1 can kidney beans
1 can chickpeas
3-4 potatoes, chopped
1 dozen large clams, deshelled
fresh thyme
bay leaf

Combine all ingredients except clams and simmer until potatoes are tender.  Add clams and simmer another 10 minutes.  Do not overcook!
