This week's soup is based on a German recipe I saw -- except that recipe called for potatoes instead of turnips. I cannot imagine it tastes any better made with the potatoes and Mr. Dreamy and I did not miss the extra carbs either.

This week's low carb soup is Caramelized Onion & Beef Soup -- really a take on French Onion without the bread. Who needs the bread with all these flavors working together?

Okay, so this isn't technically my invention -- I first saw this on Nancy Fuller's Farmhouse Rules program. I was hooked on the thought of this combination of flavors. I did some research and found very similar recipes from bon appetit and Epicurious. I took those recipes, put my own twist (lowering carbs) and came up with a salad that is YUM!!

I am sure you are familiar with the salad recipe that has ramen noodles in it -- that stuff is very addictive and sorry to say, FULL of carbs. Not only the noodles but also (depending on your recipe) lots of added sugar. BUT it is oh, so good. Well, suffer no longer.....this recipe will make you forget all about that bad stuff, lol.

Winter and soup are like peanut butter and jelly (sans the bread of course, lol) - they just go together. All that warming, bubbly goodness -- problem is soup can be a bit tricky at times when you're way of eating is low carb. So many include pastas, potatoes or beans to make them hearty. I have a few low carb soups in my regular line-up but am challenging myself to come up with a NEW soup recipe every week for the rest of winter.....so without further delay, SOUP'S ON!!
