Low Carb Cabbage soup

What’s A winter Vegetable Soup?

A low-carb winter soup contains many fulfilling but keto-friendly vegetables, celery, pumpkin plus some cabbage.

Since cabbage is packed with many beneficial vitamins, nutrients, and fiber this soup will bring you all the necessary vitamins this winter.

Plus, one bowl only contains 7.4 grams of net carbs, perfect for a light low carb dinner.

How To Make Pumpkin And Cabbage Soup

This low-carb cabbage soup on its own is very light and runny.

The trick to making a thick, creamy low-carb cabbage soup is to combine cabbage with pumpkin, and heavy cream.

In fact, pumpkin is a very low-carb vegetable with only 9 grams of net carbs per 100 grams – very similar to broccoli.

Pumpkin and heavy cream add a lovely creamy texture to this low-carb winter soup without adding many carbs.


Let’s see what you need to make this delicious low-carb soup:

  • Cabbage – white, roughly chopped.
  • Pumpkin – peeled and cut into cubes so it’s easier to fit them in the pan.
  • Celery – diced
  • Heavy Cream – or coconut cream. Both are keto-friendly creams. 
  • Vegetable stock or chicken stock if not vegetarian
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil or butter
  • Salt

Pumpkin And Cabbage Soup Toppings

The best low-carb soup toppings are toasted nuts and seeds. Simply put your nuts and seeds in a frying pan and toast them with salt and garlic powder.

The best low-carb seeds and nuts are:

  • Macadamia
  • Sliced almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sunflower seeds

Other delicious keto soup toppings are grated cheese like parmesan or cheddar, fresh herbs like Italian parsley or cubed soft cream cheese, or a drizzle of olive oil.

For kids, you can add some popcorn (not keto but a healthy option to make them love soup!)
