Last week I made soup because it was around -20°C.. but today its nearly -30°C and while I find the deep cold refreshing when outside – I like to be nice and toasty inside. So I have the fireplace on and made some keto Thai coconut curry soup!
This low carb soup is incredibly easy to make. All it takes is one pot and around 20 minutes!
Now usually this soup is topped with fried egg noodles. Because we want it to be keto friendly, I did omit them. However, I think if you wanted that fried topping, try dehydrated Enoki mushrooms! They would work so well! I also omitted the chicken, which is normally found in this recipe.
To add more protein to this recipe, you can add some shredded cooked chicken – or some tofu if you’re vegetarian.
Before I leave you with the recipe – I’m going to give a little weight update. On January 2nd, I started a low carb/Weight Watchers combo.. and today I am happy to say I’m down 5.2lbs! Can’t wait to see what the future holds!
Hope everyone is having a good 2022 so far.
