Looking for a low-carb, keto-friendly bowl of something, that you can eat with wild abandon? Here you go, baby. Low Carb, Vegetarian, Keto-approved Veggie Soup. Just 9g of total carbs, so you can enjoy this soup whenever you need a hearty meal. Cauliflower, romanesco, carrots, spinach and tomatoes, this soup is great for keeping in the fridge for noshing when you're trying to keep cravings at bay.
We tried a DIY version of the "fasting mimicking" diet this month. And other than basically dying because FIVE HUNDRED CALORIES A DAY tends to make a tummy hangry, all I kept thinking was: if only I took all of the lowest carb veggies, and made them in a soup--maybe I could get through.
And so, I did.
Cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, spinach. This simple soup has got all the good stuff. It's easy to make a big pot and keep in the fridge, so that's a helluva bonus. And it tastes crazy delish. Also a bonus.
So basically, what we've got here a 100% vegetarian, veggie-packed soup with 2 bonus points. Which makes it basically the only soup you need when you're trying to cut calories or carbs.
If you're not feeling maniacally carb-cutty, and just want a good bowl of soup, pair with crusty french bread or rolls. You can never go wrong serving such alongside soup. A sprinkling of parmesan is also a welcome addition.
But all of that is just extras. As is, this soup is a glad and happy homemade vegetable soup. The mellow miso, the veggies cooked to perfection, the inviting colors and irresistible aroma that it'll spread about your kitchen.
Yep. A good one. Try it and tell me how your fam liked it. I'd love to hear!
FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY GEEK-OUT MOMENT
These images were shot with a Canon 5D Mk III paired with a SigmaArt 35mm f/1.4 lens. I love that lens. A lifestyle photog friend mentioned it was her go-to lens for family and portrait shoots, so I figured I'd give it a try. It's gorgeous. As with all the SigmaArt lenses. They are just a dream to have in your arsenal.
That said, I prefer shooting with my 35mm on overhead shots, since side and 3/4 shots can sometimes have a bit more edge distortion than I typically like. So while I love this lens and use it often, I'd recommend starting with the SigmaArt 50mm f/1.4 lens.
