If you're missing soups like cream of potato, then this low carb alternative is for you! It's actually almost dairy free, too – apart from a tiny amount of butter. All that creaminess is from the turnips! It's satisfying and deeply savory, and would be a fantastic soup to come back to after a walk on a cold day!

Add some chicken broth and bring to the boil. Reduce down to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.Low Carb Creamy Turnip Soup - a warming and filling lunch recipe

Are Turnips Keto?

Pre-low-carbing days I would eat parsnips or carrots if I wanted a root vegetable. So I was interested to learn that one medium turnip (approx. 4oz) contains only 6g net carbs in total! They can be grilled, roasted or mashed – basically most ways of cooking that are used for potatoes can also be used for turnips. So it's not something that you want in every meal, but definitely MUCH lower in carbs than other similar vegetables.
