These soups are all low carb and many of them have a good amount of protein as well! If you add extra veggies, make sure to watch the carb count, or add in some fiber to offset.
Noodle Substitutes – My favorite noodle substitutes for soups vary based on each recipe. To name a few options:
- Shredded cabbage
- Zucchini noodles
- Shirataki noodles
Rice Substitutes – Again, this will vary based on each recipe. I most frequently use:
- Cauliflower rice
- Broccoli rice
- Miracle rice
Vegetarian – Many of these recipes can be made vegetarian by removing the protein and/or swapping out the broths for vegetable broth.
Paleo / Dairy-free – Full fat coconut milk is an awesome substitute for heavy cream in most low carb soups. Keep in mind, it’ll add a hint of coconut flavor.
Low Carb Vegetables – Don’t be afraid to make some swaps with veggies you have on hand, or add in some texture with noodles made from zucchini, sweet potato or eggplant.
Most of these soups can be made ahead of time, and often taste even better that way. There are some nifty soup freezer trays that let you freeze portions of soup to thaw one at a time, so don’t be afraid to use these recipes for meal prepping.
Especially in the chillier months, these dishes can be great for a meal any time of day. Maybe experiment with starting your day off with a warm bowl of low carb soup and see how you like it!
