These are just fabulous! They are low in carbs, high in fat and worth all the effort. I know its #dirtyketo, but this is due to the use of (deliciously addictive) Kielbasa – a smoked Polish sausage which contains a little wheat and soy. But at 7.9g carbs for this giant whopper, I think its worth being a little filthy. For my South African readers, these are what you know as “Russians”, and this would essentially be a “Russian Roll”. I made these using a ‘dough’ influenced from the fathead concept. I admit they are a little … um … rustic-looking, but they are FAB! If you are a low-carber that is still keeping an eyeball on your calories, watch out and perhaps enjoy this after a day of fasting.
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: it’s a low-carb soup (only 10g carbs per hearty bowl), but the small amount 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. However, if you are flexible to give this a go on your low-carb journey, you will love the homely, hearty flavours.
