Low Carb Cream Of Mushroom Soup

I have really been experimenting a lot with food since I’ve been eating a low carb diet. So today, I thought it would be fun to share with you how I made a yummy pot of low carb cream of mushroom soup for dinner a few days ago.

My boyfriend came home with 16 oz. of mushrooms and I was worried that they would go bad if we didn’t eat them quickly enough. So I decided to make a big pot of mushroom soup.

I love mushroom soup, but the canned soups always have lots of added crap that we don’t need. And I used to make homemade soup for my kids over the years, so I decided, “What the heck”.

Here is what I did.

In a large skillet, I sauteed one large onion chopped up and all of the mushrooms (pre-sliced) with about 2 tablespoons of butter (grass fed).

Once the onions were translucent, I added 4 cups of chicken broth. Then I brought it to a boil.

Once my broth came to a boil, I turned down to low and added 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and a 1/2 cup of sour cream.

Then I added a bit of pepper, soy sauce, and garlic powder until it tasted the way I liked it.

The next thing I did was take it off the heat and break up the mushrooms a bit with my smart stick hand blender. This helped to make the soup a tiny bit thicker.

The soup turned out really good. It tasted wonderful. I do wish it was a bit thicker.

I am also excited to try out some of the recipes in the 200 Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes book that I received on Monday. I have been reading it and bookmarked several that I want to try out.

Who knew low-carb, high fat could be so much fun!

Do you have a favorite low carb recipe? I would love to hear about it.

  1. Wendy, going to the grocery store today was certainly not on my list of things to do (smile). This soup sounds great and l am always searching for different things to cook. I will try.

    I do love the versatility of beans, but it is hard for me to choose a favorite. I will eat callaloo or cabbage, nicely seasoned and steamed, any time of the day. Put some butter on those and serve with a piece of sweet potato and my blood glucose sings “to God be the Glory.”

    Keep writing Wendy, as I keep anticipating the updates.

    1. Ha Ha! Well, it eating beans will make me sing I will have to eat more. LOL! And of course, you gotta add the butter. Take care, Josephine.

  2. Thanks Wendy for sharing this. I love mushrooms and I also love soup, so it’s a great combination for me. I will have to try this sometime when I get some mushrooms. Thanks again.
