Healthy Dinner Idea: Cheeseburger Soup (THM, Real Food)

Comfort food can be healthy. Often a little adjustment to the ingredients can make a big difference.

That is the case with this Cheeseburger Soup. It is often made with regular potatoes. And while I’m not totally against potatoes as they do offer nutritional value, they are very starchy.  That makes them a less than ideal ingredient for a higher fat dish.

This version of Cheeseburger Soup is made with non-starchy vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower as well as carrots which are a bit starchier. Even without the potatoes, this is a very satisfying comfort food meal.

Low Carb Cheeseburger Soup at Key Ingredient

This is a THM(S) or satisfying meal which is higher in fat and lower in carbs. While the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of carrots, which is fine spread over the suggested eight servings this recipe makes, I often leave the carrots out or just don’t scoop any into my bowl.

This is also a delicious real food meal.
