Chilis, chowders, and low-carb soup recipes that prove you don’t have to sacrifice flavor to stay in ketosis.
As the leaves turn and it starts getting cold out, there’s nothing more satisfying than a nice bowl of something hot to get the chill out of your bones. I’ve come up with quite a few recipes over the years so I thought I’d put my favorite chilis, chowders, and low carb soup recipes all in one place. I have even included my recipe for Tuscan Soup, inspired by the ever-popular Zuppa Tuscana from the Olive Garden.
Ten Wicked Good Low Carb Soup, Chili & Chowder Recipes
What is more classic than a good bowl of chicken soup? Not much! It’s the perfect way to warm up or help you get over the common cold. The parmesan and chopped fresh rosemary really add that extra special something. Slurp it out of a big mug or bowl, but no matter what your vessel, it’s sure to become one of your favorites.
Most beef stew recipes you’ll find require potatoes – which of course, is far from keto-friendly – but this recipe is different. Instead of a bowl of mushy carbohydrates, you’re left with a serving of slow-cooked beefy perfection that just melts in your mouth. It also has a little bit of a kick. And don’t worry if you’re not a fan of spicy foods – This recipe is totally customizable.
This rendition of a classic New England favorite is creamy, peppery, and enjoyable at any time of the year. Little langostinos give a nice boost of protein and taste just like little bites of lobster but can be omitted if you’re on a budget. You’ll still be left with a really satisfying soup that even carb lovers will enjoy.
You may be doubting the addition of pumpkin, but it’s my secret ingredient to a slurp-able and satisfying beanless chili. Don’t worry, it doesn’t make this recipe sweet. It helps create a thick and velvety texture without adding unnecessary carbs. It embraces the flavors of fall without being too overpowering. It’s even kid-tested, and approved!
Inspired by the Olive Garden’s famous Zuppa Tuscana, this hearty, savory, and a little spicy keto soup embraces the power of antioxidant-rich superfood kale while spicing it up with some freshly made, spiced pork meatballs. If you’re pressed for time, you can also use cooked, crumbled sausage and it’s just as delicious. If you want to add an extra kick, just add a generous sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes.
Chicken, bacon, and ranch is an iconic flavor combo that isn’t just for salads anymore. It all starts off by making my keto bechamel recipe, then it all comes together by adding freshly cooked bacon, shredded chicken, and a secret ingredient – your favorite keto-friendly ranch dressing. This recipe makes 4 deliciously filling servings, but you can double it and enjoy comforting grab and go lunches all week long.
Ditch the 99 cent ramen you get at the store and make a flavorful, low carb version instead! It all starts off with a delicious bone broth made from leftover roast turkey. Finish it off with some freshly made zoodles, sliced turkey, and a soft-boiled egg and you have one slurpable bowl of soup.
If you’re sick of fried, scrambled, and hard-boiled eggs, this recipe is for you. It tastes just as good, if not better than authentic Chinese takeout, but it only takes 10 minutes to prepare. Made with clean ingredients like nutritious bone broth, eggs, and scallions, it’s the perfect option for anyone trying to keep their carb consumption in check.
Silky, smooth, and packed with flavor, this one is sure to become one of your favorite low-carb soups. The curry balances out the sweetness of the pumpkin and coconut – There’s even a surprise ingredient that I think you’ll enjoy. Just add a little swirl of fresh cream and garnish with some freshly ground black and crushed red pepper to finish it off, and you’ve got the perfect dish to impress your guests.
This keto-friendly bone broth is packed with healthy vitamins and minerals from bone marrow, collagen, and gelatin. Its also an excellent source of magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. The best part is that you can just throw all the ingredients in a slow cooker and forget about it. It will cook slowly, but when it’s done you’ll be left with 10 cups of goodness to use in your favorite soup recipe or enjoy on its own.
