This Easy Sausage Soup Recipe Is A Quick Dinner

Leftovers warm up wonderfully and make an excellent work lunch.
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.
