The recipe as is, is quite bland, but a good base to season as you would like. There are several good suggestions as to how to perk this recipe up (tsp onion and/or garlic powder, etc.). Clam juice itself is not overly tasteful. Instead of water or additional clam juice, I'd cover the cooking vegetables with a quart of chicken broth. Also, a good roux takes takes a few minutes and patience (the flour & butter step). Alternatively, I would definitely go with the bacon suggestion: Dice up 4 strips of bacon and fry until golden brown, add 1/2 cup flour. and mix together, browning slightly - then add gradually add the cream, etc. Good luck!
