How to make low carb cabbage soup?

Low carb cabbage soup on its own is very light and runny. The trick to make a thick, creamy low-carb cabbage soup is to combine cabbage with pumpkin, heavy cream. In fact, pumpkin is a very low carb vegetable with only 9g net carb per 100g – very similar to broccoli. Pumpkin and heavy cream add lovely creamy texture to this low carb winter soup without adding much carbs. Let’s see what you need to make this delicious low carb soup:

  • Cabbage – white, roughly chopped
  • Pumpkin – peeled, fine cubes are easier to fit in the pan
  • Celery, diced
  • Heavy cream or coconut cream 
  • Vegetable stock or chicken stock if not vegetarian
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Olive oil or butter
  • Salt

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 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!)
