I love soup.


Let me repeat: I LOVE SOUP!

I am horrible about posting recipes with amounts though.

I make wedding soup: Chicken broth/stock, with diced/shredded chicken, spinach, egg threads. Garnish with parm cheese.

Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscano knock off: Chicken broth/stock, browned itallian hot sausage, fork tender diced cauliflower. Garnish with parm cheese.

Tomato Soup: Hunts tomato sauce (lowest carb tomato base I have ever found. NOT spaghetti sauce, just 'sauce') add chicken stock, heavy cream, franks red hot, splenda to taste. Garnish with shredded cheddar and a big dollop of sour cream.

All meat chili with ground sirloin, spices (including cocoa powder!) cooked down in hunts thinned with a little stock.

Lazone cream of chicken soup: Leftover Lazone (from the recipe room) sauce with diced chicken, add chicken broth/stock, heavy cream and fork tender diced cauliflower.

OMG I LOVE SOUP!

I love soup too!

My favorite is chicken/cabbage soup. I usually boil a couple chicken breast in water, shred it, add rachel ray chicken stock, then add shredded cabbage, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and let simmer. Add some shiratake noodles for chicken noodle soup! Just made a pot yesterday.

Can you elaborate on this one? I know you said you don't really measure out ingredients, but can you give a general idea? This sounds really interesting!

Thanks guys. I'm having a hard time grasping "low carb" soup. I'm a fan of tortilla soup. I think I am going to play around with some recipes and see how low I can go. (low carb that is)

I just made this for the first time yesterday. I had two teeth pulled and was craving chicken noodle soup but wanted to stick to Induction.

Chicken 'Noodle' Soup (adjust amounts to suit yourself)

- canned chicken broth
- spaghetti squash 'noodles'
- some shredded chicken breast from a store bought rotisserie chicken
- salt, pepper, and onion powder

I warmed in a saucepan and sprinkled it with a little Parmasean cheese once it was in my bowl. Yum and easy to eat with sore teeth!

I've been sick this week, and I made a soup that I really love. Chicken thighs, skin on, and bones, simmered for 4 hrs with celery, onion, and some Garlic Plus! seasoning, and lots of salt. Then I shredded the chicken, skimmed out the bones, and added frozen baby brussell sprouts and gluccomannan to thicken. Also, in the bowl I added a tablespoon of sour cream sometimes for the extra richness. Best soup I've had in a long time.

Oh, and I thought about adding those shirataki noodles, but never did.

trishthedish, thanks! I was just out in the garden looking at all the spaghetti squash my father grew and was wondering about what I could do with some of it. That sounds so simple and yummy!

I'll second the knockoff Olive Garden Zuppa, though I am naughty and use potatoes - just limited. But I always add either kale or spinach, too. It's fantastic.

WOE: Low in carbs, high in yumminess.
Start Date: March 13th, 2010
I'm a huge ... HUUUUUGE ... fan of soups. A large percentage of my total meals revolve around soups or salads. There are all kind of things you can do, like veggie soups with some sausage or meat, even a little pasta, etc. There are all-meat chilis. Simple things like plain broth or consome. There are asian soups with ginger, scallions, lemongrass, coconut milk, etc. Soups are VERY easily made to be low carb. You don't need "bread" to hold it together or sop it up.

One kind of quickie method that I use that can get a lot of variety ... take some chicken broth (canned or powdered) and put it on the stove. Throw a small amount of "pick a vegetable" in the pot with a small amount of onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. It's really quite common for me to add some herbs, like rosemary. Bacon, too. Simmer it until the veggies are soft. Then, puree it in a blender, while adding whole cream to the blender. Make a great "Cream of Whatever" soup! I do this with tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, pumpkin, zucchini, etc. You can also garnish with some cheese. Grated parmeson on a cream of tomato soup is awesome!

Ultimately, look around for some recipes on the internet. They're everywhere and they're free. I personally try and stay below 10 net carbs per "whatever I make", but you may be pursuing a different way of eating. Good luck. Lots of good food out there!

I make creamy tomato bacon soup and french onion soup a few times a month. The french onion can be low carb depending on how many onions you put in.
The tomato comes out to about 14 carbs for 1/4 of the recipe give or take, last time I checked, depending on how you make it, sorry I usually just throw some stuff in, but this is pretty much the recipe:
28oz crushed tomatoes
2oz heavy cream (or more)
2 oz almond milk (however much for desired thickness)
2 tbls. tomato paste
1 med. onion
7-10 pieces of turkey bacon/or real bacon cut into tiny pieces
I usually put in lots of spices too, pepper, basil, garlic, etc.
I fry up the onions and turkey bacon in butter then add the rest. When done, I mix in shredded cheese

Every winter, every year we live on Pumpkin Sausage Soup that I got from this site about 10 years ago...I, too, am a HUGE soup fan and this is a family favorite...search the site for it, but it includes...

Canned pumpkin...not the pie filling
Ground sausage in those tubes..think Jimmy Dean
Onion
Mushrooms
Chicken broth
Whole whipping cream
Cilantro

I make mine a curried pumpkin sausage soup.....it was a huge hit on the boards years ago...you'll be very sorry if you don't double it!!!

Now I'm heading into the kitchen to make a curried cilantro cauliflower soup!

That one is super easy, b/c I follow Dana Carpenter's all meat chili recipe:

2 lbs ground sirlion
3 cloves garlic, crusheda
1 can constanina tomato sauce
1 cup beef stock
1 small can chopped green chilis
4 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon paprika

Brown you sirloin in a deep skillet and drain off the grease. Add everything else in and stir to combine. Cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes. Uncover and turn heat to medium and simmer another 20 minutes or so, until the chili cooks down to thicken. I've also added a pinch of xanthum gum at the end to thicken it up. Serve with sour cream and shredded cheese.

I put spinach in mine too...did I forget to mention that? Like I said, I'm horrible with telling people recipes. I just get in the kitchen and throw stuff together for the most part. I actually boil a bag of frozen cauli in my chicken broth, and then fork it into little chunks before adding everything else in. Never know the difference as far as missing the potatoes.

Just finished making a soup I made up! It's delicious! Curried Cauluflower Cilantro!

Hugh head of cauliflower cut into florets
One box of chicken stock...this was free range
2 large onions, used walla walla sweet onions
Cilantro
Chopped garlic to taste

I have a large wok like pan and I diced all the onions and garlic and sauteed them in butter and a little olive oil. After they were translucent, i added all the cauliflower and mixed it in with the onions. I covered for about 10 minutes and let the cauliflower cook down a bit. Added all the chicken stock, re-covered and lowered the heat to simmer for about 15 minutes. Used my immersion blender and pureed it all to a very creamy texture. I seasoned with salt, pepper, dash of cayenne, curry, ginger and added chopped cilantro. I also added a dash of cream, but if you are not eating dairy, it REALLY doesn't need it. I pureed everything together in the pot on the stove....gotta love an immersion blender!!

You could really make this soup into any flavor you want, but man, this combination of seasonings with the cilantro turned out great!!!

This is my version of Cleo's wonderful Pumpkin Sausage Soup. I am going to replace the half & half with coconut milk next time I make this.

Spicy Pumpkin Chicken Soup
  • 2 c mashed pumpkin (1 15 oz can)
  • 4 c. chicken broth
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup chopped/sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup half & half OR 1/2 cup half and half mixed with 1/2 cup water
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 t red pepper or to taste
  • light sprinkling of crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 pound chicken breast cubed

Brown chicken in pan, drain, and then add the onion, garlic and pepper. Stir in the pumpkin and mushrooms, then add the broth and mix well. Simmer 20-30 minutes. Stir in the half & half and simmer on low another 10-15 min.

Can I ask a probably stupid question? I was really interested in making the pumpkin shake but I cannot find any form of pumpkin that doesn't look high carb.
Am I missing something obvious?
