11. Easy Thai Shrimp Soup
Creamy coconut blended with the spicy curry gives this soup the taste you’d expect from a Thai restaurant in a soup you make from home. This is easy to throw together when you’re looking for a healthy lunch in a hurry. The red curry paste is the most difficult ingredient to find, but most grocery stores these days have at least a small Asian food section that will have this product. To make it a truly low-carb soup, omit the Basmati rice.
12. Spicy Sriracha Lime Chicken Zoodle Soup
If you don’t have a spiralizer yet, it’s time to get yourself one. It will make it easy to follow a low-carb diet when you can make pasta substitutes from healthy vegetables. This twist on the classic chicken noodle soup will certainly spice up your taste buds. You add the Sriracha hot sauce at the end, which makes it easy to customize the bowl depending on how hot you want it.
13. Healthy Chicken Minestrone Soup
Traditional minestrone soup is full of noodles and beans, which don’t exactly make it a carb-free soup. However, this version gives you the taste of minestrone soup without those carbohydrates. Rather than adding the noodles and beans, you simply add shredded chicken pieces. The recipe makes use of a lot of summer vegetables, so it’s a fantastic way to use up the abundance of vegetables you’re getting from your garden.
14. Crock Pot Mexican Chicken Soup
A jar of salsa gives this easy-to-make low-carb soup recipe its Mexican flavor, so you don’t have to worry about adding a lot of spices on your own. The hardest part of making this soup is shredding the chicken at the end, so it’s a great meal idea for those days when you know that you’ll be too busy to cook up something healthy. The kids might love this paired with quesadillas, while you enjoy a double-helping to avoid the carbs.
15. Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Low-carb soup recipes can be broth-based or creamy, and this recipe is definitely on the creamy side. You might find yourself wondering if you could really consider it a “soup” since it feels more like a chicken pot pie without the crust. However, that’s probably what you want. Chicken pot pies are a classic comfort food, but the flakey pie crust would be a no-no for most people who choose to eat low-carb. This way, you get the creamy deliciousness of the insides without messing up your diet.
16. Chipotle Chicken Chowder
Creamy and spicy, this chicken chowder will warm you up on a cold winter’s day. The chipotle peppers add a unique taste to this carb free soup, which is nice when you’re starting to feel a bit bored with the traditional flavors of soup. What’s really nice about this recipe is its versatility. Use fresh chicken if you have that available, but you could also use leftover chicken or turkey instead. Making a soup is a great way to use up any leftovers you have.
17. Chicken Avocado Soup with Lime and Cilantro
You don’t often find avocado in a soup, which makes this Mexican-inspired low-carb soup a refreshing change. With their healthy fats, avocados are a good addition to anyone’s diet. The jalapenos really give it some spiciness, which you can tone down a bit if you’re not into the heat. If you’re going to save some of this for later, be sure to save just the soup and add the avocado later. Otherwise, it might turn brown and go bad, even with the lime juice.
18. Turbo Atkins Diet Soup
This low-carb vegetable soup is packed full of healthy vegetables, but also has chicken and bacon for some added flavor and heartiness to keep you full. Take this recipe and make it your own by adding whatever vegetables you prefer or happen to have on hand. In fact, you could use this basic recipe as a way to clean out the refrigerator at the end of the week.
19. Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup
This low-carb soup recipe gets its name from the famous Wisconsin cheddar cheese. Using fat-free half-and-half reduces the overall calorie count of the soup, but fat-free versions of products are typically higher in carbohydrates. Read the labels and switch to a higher fat version if that’s better for your eating plan. By blending the cauliflower, then adding the cheese, you’d hardly know that this soup is so full of vegetables.
20. Low-Carb Cauliflower Cream Cheese Soup
Another take on the idea of using cauliflower in place of a high-carb food – in this case, potatoes – this yummy low-carb soup is sure to please a crowd. Cream cheese gives it a lighter taste than something more flavorful, like cheddar, which can be a welcome change. Dill spices are a unique choice, giving the soup an unexpected flavor. This recipe was originally made as a copycat recipe for Panera’s potato cream cheese soup, which is now retired.
