Creamy Keto Sausage Soup Recipe Ingredients

  • Sausage – I used Jimmy Dean hot. If you like Italian sausage, you could use that and make this an Italian Keto Sausage Soup.
  • Small onion – This is optional and adds carbs. If you want the lowest carb soup then omit the onion.
  • Garlic – One clove of minced garlic contains only 1 carb. When you consider the volume of keto sausage soup this recipe makes, the garlic addition is so worth the flavor payoff.
  • Water + Chicken bullion – My favorite is Better Than Boullion – Roasted Chicken Base
  • Cream cheese – Cream cheese is what makes this low carb soup creamy.
  • Canned diced tomatoes with the juices
  • Fresh zucchini – chopped
  • Fresh mushrooms – sliced
  • Fresh spinach or cabbage – Use whatever you have on hand. Spinach looks prettier but both tastes great.
  • Dried parsley – Adds color
  • Cayenne pepper powder – Adds a little zing.
  • Garlic powder – Deepens the flavor of the soup.
