It’s winter. Soup is good. Right? Except that, when you’re on a low carb diet, soups often aren’t filling enough (unless it’s a big rich cheese soup, of course)! Without the classic additions of rice, pasta or noodles, soup can be delicious but just not filling enough. And if you’re anything like me, that means that you’re more susceptible to a snack or three a little later.
My answer to this problem was more MEAT. Ground beef is the perfect candidate, and that’s how I came up with the idea of this low carb lasagna soup! So let’s get started!
In a large skillet, brown the meat in oil then add onion powder and dried Italian herbs (I use a seasoning blend). Add beef broth or stock, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes to let the flavors all meld together.
Meanwhile, cut up two low carb tortillas into small strips. These will imitate the pasta part of the lasagna! Add them to the soup with some shredded cheese. Cook for another few minutes until the cheese has melted. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary.
Serve with additional shredded cheese and a swirl of heavy cream or a dollop of sour cream, whichever you prefer.Low Carb Lasagna Soup - a delicious and filling twist on the Italian classic! #lowcarb Click To Tweet
