This Carrot Ginger Soup is the perfect cool weather soup, and would make a delightful accompaniment to your Thanksgiving dinner. You can serve with salad before the big feast or as an appetizer - in small bowls or cups. It's made with farm fresh carrots, ginger, and vegetable broth. The soup is then blended until smooth. I serve with my homemade sauce, and a swirl of heavy cream or coconut milk (to keep vegan). A great soup for everyone! It's totally vegan and dairy free (if you omit heavy cream swirl).


This loaded with flavor, vitamins & minerals, and it's only 3.3g net carbs - making it lowcarb / keto-friendly, paleo, healthy and delicious - your family and guests will love it!

Needing a bread for Thanksgiving? Try my Easy Keto Low-Carb Cornbread. This recipe is for a double batch so it's perfect to serve for to your family or a larger crowd on Thanksgiving. It's the perfect substitute for traditional cornbread, as it has no corn or cornmeal in the recipe. It's made with almond flour, sweetener, eggs, and to mimic that cornmeal texture I added in a bit of hemp hearts (shelled hemp heart seeds). It's so delicious, your family and friends will have no idea it's keto-friendly. I baked the cornbread in my Great Jones 10-inch Sweetie Pie Pie Plate - it turned out beautiful. I was a bit nervous baking a larger batch, this ceramic stoneware is fabulous in making a nice evenly baked bread with a golden crust. It's nonstick, so no extra oil or butter was needed in the baking dish.


I served with butter and SunnyBo Hunny - this honey alternative is new me - it's made from apple juice, no sugar-added. It has a very slight taste of apple, perfect sweetness, and makes a great accompaniment to cornbread - making this a perfect Thanksgiving / Fall Harvest bread to serve to all your guests. Both are keto-friendly, gluten-free, and sugar-free. In addition, this "Hunny" is vegan & delicious!

It's a soup kind of day here!! It's rainy, dark and dreary here today .. so Wedding Soup is on!! It's super easy, comforting and delicious! It's my mom's recipe which means there's no recipe. But I will tell you how I make best I can. Growing we called it "Escarole Soup". Most of you probably know it is Wedding Soup. Wedding soup or Italian wedding soup is an Italian soup consisting of green vegetables and meat - the perfect marriage. I make it with fresh escarole and mini low carb meatballs. I like it just like this, however you could add in a low carb pasta or rice alternative. This Wedding Soup is a delicious and hearty soup that is easy to make. Make for Sunday supper or for a quick weeknight meal. Enjoy with your your favorite bread and salad.

Wedding Soup (Escarole Soup) | Low Carb Ingredients:

Meatballs:

1 lb. meatloaf mix (or ground beef)

1 Tablespoon dried parsley

1 large egg

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup Italian style bread crumbs*

1 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

*If you're following a keto diet you can omit the breadcrumbs or replace finely ground pork rinds. The breadcrumbs add 16g net carbs to the entire meatball recipe, which is about 0.5g (or less) per meatball. Soup:

64 ounces chicken broth (College Inn broth is my favorite)

1 pound escarole, coarsely chopped

Freshly grated Parmesan for garnish

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

1. In a large soup pot, heat chicken broth to a simmer/low boil.

2. In the meantime, in a separate med/large pot you want to pre- cook the escarole a bit. This cuts down on any bitterness. Place the chopped escarole in a med/large pot with about 1/4-1/2 cup of water. Cook until it just starts to wilt. It should still be bright green. Drain and set aside.

3. To make the meatballs: In a large bowl mix all meatball ingredients together, by hand, until just blended. Do not over mix as the meatballs will get tough in texture. Using 1 1/2 teaspoons for each, shape the meat mixture into 1-inch-diameter meatballs.

4. To make the soup: drop meatballs in simmering/low boil broth. Simmer until meatballs start to float to the top (this is how you know the meatballs are cooked) - this takes only a few minutes. Add escarole and simmer about 10 minutes. Serve and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional). I like to make earlier in the day and keep it warm on low setting. This allows the flavors to marry and taste delicious!

Note: if when cooking you don't seem to have enough broth I just add 1 cup of water and a chicken bullion.

Enjoy! Print Recipe:
