Introduction

Winter evenings + Creamy Keto Tomato Soup + Netflix = bliss! Or so I like to think 😝. For the longest time on keto I feared vegetables like onions and tomatoes because they have carbs in them. As a result, I missed out on lots of tasty and comforting things such as soups. I simply wasn’t prepared to sacrifice 8g of my 20g daily carb intake on soup! Fast-forward a year living the keto life and I am more than ok with using my carbs on nutritious and tasty carbs 😀.

Speaking of tasty, this soup is just that. It’s creamy and has a slight hint of spice from the pepper and chilli. Each serving has 5g net carbs and 300 calories. Lastly, add in a slice or two of almond loaf bread and you have yourself a delicious and comforting winter dinner.

Enjoy

Method

  1. Firstly, heat the butter in a saucepan and once it has melted add in the chopped bacon. Cook until done.
  2. Next, add in the onions and garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook the onions on a low heat until nice and caramelised. (the salt helps with the browning).
  3. Then, once the onions, garlic and bacon mixture is browned add in the tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes.
  4. Cover the pan with a lid and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes
  5. After 5 minutes of cooking add in the pepper, dried chilli flakes and oregano. Also add in about 250ml of chicken stock (1 cup).
  6. Next, cover with a lid and cook for about 20 minutes till the tomatoes are completely soft. Keep opening the lid every 2-3 minutes and stirring to ensure nothing sticks.
  7. Then, once it’s cooked add the heavy cream and then blend the mixture in a food processor or using an immersion blender. Add more stock if needed to make it easier to blend.
  8. Lastly, top with some creme fraiche. Enjoy!
