Low-carb Sausage and Cabbage Soup

Low Carb Sausage and Cabbage Soup

You wouldn’t think that such simple ingredients could create a soup that would pack such a punch like this one can – and its all thanks to the Poles who brought us delicious Kielbasa (a smoked sausage found in the deli meat aisle.) For my South African readers, these are what we have come to know and love as ‘Russians’. This recipe is a great example of what we refer to as Dirty Keto. Its a low-carb soup (only 10g carbs per hearty bowl)… but the small amount amounts of wheat and soy found in the sausages are considered highly frowned upon with the keto police. And they are correct, wheat is inflammatory and the Kielbasa itself is a processed meat. BUT …if you are not so strict and you are happy to give this a go on your low-carb / dirty keto journey, you will love the homely, hearty flavours the Kielbasa brings, along with the glorious flavour of smoked paprika. (Plus, its fun to be filthy once in a while….) If its not substantial enough as a main meal, serve it up with a slice or two of the Quick Chia Keto Bread.

Recipe Notes

I used a simple Knorr chicken stock pot, dissolved in 600g boiling hot water. (They now have a gluten-free version one, so be sure to use that one.)

Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
