Keto soup isn’t the first thing you’d think of making when going low carb, most soups we make tend to be using starchy vegetables like potato, carrot etc. The trick is to find low carb, but flavorful vegetables as a base, then complement them with suitable fats to give the soup richness and texture.
This soup does just that, taking meaty, umami mushrooms for a delicious, warming, autumnal flavor, and using cream to give body to the dish as well as to up the fat quantity to make this a keto soup.
