Well it looks like I’m back on a low carb kick again! I’m trying to loose a few of those extra baby pounds that seem to stick like glue to my hips… I suppose eating cheesecake every night doesn’t help! Besides the cheesecake.. the garlic breads and biscuits.. roasted potatoes and rice noodles.. eating low carb is actually fantastic! Until I cave and eat a giant plate of Cheesy Focaccia Bread… *hangs head in shame*

How to make hamburger soup

So I was super craving a yummy hamburger soup and wanted to make it delicious and low carb. The problem is my Hearty Hamburger Soup is loaded with potatoes, beans, corn and pasta! To make up for those yummy carbs I replaced them with cauliflower.. So good! It soaked up the flavour of the soup and worked perfectly in this Low Carb Hamburger Soup. I didn’t for a second miss the carbs.

To make this soup, fry up some onion, celery, garlic and ground beef until cooked through. Add carrots, cauliflower, peas, tomatoes, beef broth and simmer for half an hour! Easy!

Can you freeze homemade soup?

You sure can! A huge bonus is this soup freezes great! I like to make an extra big batch just so my freezer can indulge as well.

Can you make soup in a slow cooker?

Oh definitely! Mix all your ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on low for at least 5-6 hours or high for 3-4! This soup would be great if left in the slow cooker all day on low while you were at work!

What Beef Broth to use

Bone Stock is incredibly good for you, especially when on a low carb diet, and is actually super easy to make! I like to make a big pot of bone stock to keep in my freezer for when I make this soup.

  • Heat a soup pot on the stove to medium and add the olive oil. Dice the onion and celery and add when the oil is hot. Cook until the onion is transparent, add the garlic and cook for one minute, then add the ground beef, salt, pepper and spices. Cook until the beef is cooked through.

Notes

If your macros are tight, you can try skipping the carrots and green peas. Each bowl would have 7g net carbs instead of 10, or you could separate them into smaller portions.

  1. I made this tonight. I tweaked it a bit. Made a double batch, added canned peas instead of frozen ( don’t like the taste or texture of frozen peas ) and added red bell pepper. It is amazing!

    Do you not drain the grease off of the hamburger meat before adding the rest of the ingredients? (Low Carb Hamburger Soup recipe)

    • Hey Monica! It totally depends on how much grease is produced from the beef.. if there is lots of grease, go ahead and dump the grease before adding the rest of the ingredients 🙂


  3. I have been making homemade soup weekly. With all the snow that is in the forecast, this is just the kind of dinner we need. Always a welcome way to warm up from the cold.

    • It doesn’t usually snow much where I live, but it has been snowing all week and looks to continue for a while… I’m also making soup once a week to fight the chill!


  4. It is so hard to loose that baby weight so I really sympathise. I’m still trying 4 years after my last baby was born! This low carb hamburger soup sounds like a great meal choice though.


  5. I love soups especially during colder months in the year. This looks like a very cozy and satisfying bowl, perfect for lunch or dinner!


  6. Soup is my favorite food. This recipe is definitely being added to my soup list! I also like all the healthy nutritious ingredients. Thanks for posting!

    Don’t worry about carrying around the baby weight — I’ve been doing it for 43 years. But I haven’t given up. That should count for something shouldn’t it? We love soups and have a pot made at least once a week. The hamburger soup looks great — it would be very satisfying during these long cold days. I’m pinning.


  8. I’m with the other ladies here, still trying to lose that baby weight after almost 13 years >.< So be easy on yourself, there is plenty of time x I love the idea of this soup, it sounds so tasty, in fact, I can almost taste it right now!


  9. This looks so yummy! Definitely comfort food — but way more unique than the typical chicken noodle soup! I know what I’ll be cooking up next time I’m feeling sick! 🙂

  10. A plate of this soup would be good about now. We are still in the deep freeze in the northweSt. Cold cold temp and lots of snow. I just want to curl up to a heaping bowl of you hamburger soup. Way better than fast food! Yum!

  11. This looks so hearty and comforting! Perfect for the dead of winter when you want a piping hot dinner.

  12. Whoa what a combo! Had never heard of hamburger soup… nice idea! Thanks so much for sharing :).

  13. Winter comfort foods are often so heavy and carb loaded; what a great way to still enjoy a warm, hearty dinner during all this cold weather, without all the carbs!


  14. Soup looks so hearty and comforting. I’d help myself with BIG bowl of this soup and some crusty bread on the side. haha! Perfect way to spend cold days.

  15. i have a question before making the soup… do you really add 1/2 cup tomato paste. That sounded like a lot but I’ll do it if you say to. 🙂 Thanks for answering.

    • Hey Donna! Yes, I really do use 1/2 cup tomato paste. You can absolutely use less if you like, but I like mine to be very tomato-y 😛
