H ere’s a super low calorie, low carb thick and creamy soup perfect for hiding chicken or other protein in when you need a low carb disguise! Also, it’s just a super yummy comfort soup in cold weather.
4 tbsp (or so) chopped fresh ginger
4 cups each chopped kobacha squash & rutabaga
1/2 chopped onion & 3 stalks celery
4 cloves fresh garlic
about a tbsp dried rosemart, 2 bay leaves, and a tsp. dried thyme
Chili powder and black pepper to taste
Boil in a pot with just enough water to cover all ingredients, until fully cooked and soft. Let cool and then blend everything together in Vitamix. Saute the other half of onion and a few stalks of celery in the pot you just used with a tad of coconut or olive oil (I do this because I like to have a few chunks in my otherwise blended soup), and then add to soup back into pot.
Add diced chicken, ground turkey to make it a high protein, low carb hearty meal 🙂
