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!
Pin this for later!
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. Pictured above it a bowl of thawed Low Carb Hamburger Soup with a Keto Bagel sanwich loaded with black forest ham and Dubliner cheese – get the Keto Bagel recipe from Wholesum Yum!
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.
