Whether it’s winter or summer or spring or fall, this low carb recipe is sure to warm your insides. This soup is even better for those of us watching our carbohydrate intake because each serving size is less than six grams! Yay!
While this recipe calls for ground turkey, I don’t see why you couldn’t use turkey meat left over from Thanksgiving. If you do use leftovers, just make sure you finely dice the meat or run it through a food processor. We don’t want anyone choking on turkey meat 😳.
The seasonings in this soup? They come together perfectly. If you like things spicy, add a bit more red pepper flakes. If you’re not a fan of cauliflower, substitute your favorite veggie.
Cauliflower is used in a lot of keto-friendly recipes because of its ability to a) fill you up and b) its nutritional content. This turkey soup recipe uses riced cauliflower because it’s lower in carbohydrates and smaller in size (making it perfect for soups).
A word of caution: make sure to use frozen riced cauliflower and not dried riced cauliflower. There’s a BIG difference!
