Your favorite Low Carb soup recipe

Hey, everybody. I'm going to a hayride Saturday evening and each family is supposed to bring a pot of homemade soup. I'd love to hear your recommendations. What's your favorite, most deee-licious soup recipe? Thanks for your help!

Hamburger Soup can be tailored to suit your tastes and is great for a crowd

The basics are (no amounts, make it with the quantities that suit you) :

ground beef (leaner is better for this one), browned with onions, garlic(if you like), dried italian seasoning then add:
beef broth;
canned or frozen green beans;
celery, sliced;
zucchini, diced or sliced (add near the end of cooking so it doesn't get mushy) ;
turnips (peel and dice, these replace potatoes) ;
chopped cabbage(optional) ;
frozen broccoli and cauliflower (optional) ;
canned diced tomatoes;
tomato sauce (jarred pasta sauce works well here, too, find a lower carb one)
salt and pepper to taste along with whatever seasonings you like. I like to add marjoram and thyme along with some dried parsley.
Simmer.

The carb count will depend on brands and amounts

Oh, if you're using a slow-cooker/crockpot, make sure to brown the beef first anyway - it has an odd texture if you don't.

Mine is pretty simple. Cheddar broccoli soup. In a pot, sweat out onions and garlic in olive oil, add chicken or beef broth, add cut up broccoli and cook until soft. Using an immersion blender, blender soup until smooth. Add shredded cheddar cheese and mix until totally blended. A great variation is using smoked cheddar, or adding liquid smoke to the soup. I realize I'm being really general here, but the recipe is so very forgiving that you can't mess it up unless you burn the vegetables.

Not sure who originated this, so I don't know who to give credit to but I got it from this site. One of hubby's favorites.

PUMPKIN AND SAUSAGE SOUP

2 c mashed pumpkin (1 15 oz can)
4 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. minced onion
1 c. finely chopped mushrooms
1/2 c half and half mixed with 1/2 c water
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T Italian Seasoning
1/2 pound spicy sausage
Brown sausage, drain, and then add the onion, garlic and herbs. When the sausage is browned, stir in the pumpkin. Stir in the broth and mix well. Simmer 20-30 minutes. Stir in the milk and simmer on low another 10-15 min. Taste and add salt/pepper as needed.

It tastes nothing like you would expect it to! I use Bob Evans hot breakfast sausage, and it is nice and spicy. Really hits the spot

Made this today for the first time. Pretty good. The only change, I added a pound of Italian sausage to the hamburger. Next time, I'll double the sauerkraut.

Curried cream of chicken soup

1 teaspoon butter •
1 tbsp curry powder •
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)•
1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened (or water)
1/2 cup cream
3 tbsp carbquik
2 cups chicken broth •
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon concentrate
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1/2 cup chopped spinach (or broccoli or asparagus)
1/2 cup diced celery

Konjac powder if needed

In a saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the curry powder and sauté for a minute or two. Add the garlic, spinach, onion and celery. Cook until veggies begin to soften.

Mix the Carbquik and bouillon concentrate into the chicken broth and add to the pan. Stir until it begins to thicken.

Let the whole thing simmer for five minutes, then serve. (If it is not quite thick enough, add a little konjac.) Makes 4 1-cup servings or 2 2-cup servings.

I make a beef vegetable with beef stock, diced leftover roast or steak, diced turnip, diced carrots, diced onion, diced celery, & mushrooms.

Melt a tbsp of butter in a sauce pan and add the veggies and saute them a bit. Add the beef broth and simmer until the veggies are tender, about ten minutes.

Mix three tbsp carbquik in 1/4 cup water or beef broth and stir into the soup. Simmer about five minutes until it thickens a bit. Add the beef and simmer until the meat is heated through. Salt and pepper to taste. (I don't cook the meat with the veggies because the already cooked meat gets kind of dry and tough if you cook it too long.)

Sometimes I put some frozen spinach, or zoodles or shiratake blend noodles in the soup.

On the Food Network's Farmhouse Rules, the host, Nancy Hill made a broccoli cheese soup. She sauteed onions and garlic in olive oil and added broccoli. After adding chicken broth and a little cream, she added Montery Jack cheese and a package of Boursin cheese with all the tiny chives and other herbs. Sounds like a really good idea. I'm going to try it.

Her food always looks delicious, but there are not many recipes that are low carb friendly. This one sounds great.

This is a favorite of this household and was my Dad's favorite as well!

Creamy Green Chile Soup

7 oz. can chopped Ortega or similar brand mild green chiles (I use two cans)
1 carton (2 cups) sour cream
2 cups water
2 tsp. chicken stock base paste (or sub 2 cups chicken broth for the water and stock base)
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of onion powder
4 shakes Chipotle Tabasco OR a pinch of chipotle chile powder
1 cup of shredded Mexican blend cheeses (I used Tillamook blend, shredded cheddar works fine too)

Whir all this together in a VitaMix or blender.

Heat over low flame or in the microwave til hot. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves or additional shredded cheese if desired.

To make a main meal, add shredded chicken or beef to the bowl, then ladle soup over it.

Yum Charski, sounds wonderful, hubby loves that type of thing. I saw your Butternut squash and thought, shoot, I'm gonna try a sweet potatoe soup and then saw Linda's recipe here for pumpkin. I've always tht of pumpkin and sw. potatoe as sweets but as some of you have said, adding sausage, yum. Of course sw. potatoe isn't lc but I'm so well behaved, heck, sw. potatoe every now and then won't break the bank. And if it does, tough turkey, lol.

I love pumpkin soup but I am NOT a fan of that sausage/pumpkin recipe - I'm in the minority though! The combination of flavors just was to me.
