The Warmth of a Great Soup

This time of year, nothing hits the spot quite as well as a steaming mug of hearty, nutritious soup. This recipe freezes and reheats very well, if you happen to have any leftovers — but don't count on it!

Truly Low Carb's Cream of Vegetable Soup

  • 4 cups chopped low carb vegetables of your choice
    (1 liter — I suggest cauliflower, broccoli, celery, asparagus, or mushrooms.)
  • 4 cups of chicken stock (1 liter)
  • 1 cup of heavy cream (240 ml)
  • 1/2 cup butter (120 ml)
  • 1 cup water (240 ml)
  • 3 Tb. ThickenThin NotStarchT (45 ml)
  • 1 Tb. garlic powder (15 ml)
  • 1 tsp. salt (5 ml)
  • 1 Tb. black pepper (5 ml)
  • 2 tsp. marjoram (10 ml)
  • 1 Tb. onion powder (15 ml)
  • Dash hot pepper sauce, optional, to taste
Truly Low Carb's Cream of Vegetable Soup Prepare vegetables as needed (Peel the broccoli stalks and slice thinly. Chop florets of broccoli or cauliflower roughly. Slice mushrooms or celery, etc.) Boil the vegetables in the chicken stock till tender.

Reserve 1/3 of the vegetables. Puree the remainder in batches in the blender and return to pan along with reserved vegetables, or use an immersion blender to puree the soup while still in the pan, to the desired consistency.

Melt butter in another pan. Mix the NotStarch with water till dissolved. Add to butter and heat till thickened. Stir in the heavy cream, and add the warm cream mixture to the pureed vegetable mixture. Heat through, but be careful not to boil!

6 generous servings, carbs will vary depending on vegetables used. Made with broccoli, mine had 11 carbs and 5 grams fiber per serving.

Cheese would make a lovely addition to this soup.
