Low Carb Sausage and Pepper Soup

Keto Recipes > Dinner

I’ve been a fan of Hot Sausage and Pepper Soup for a long time. Even when I started the website, that was one of the first recipes I posted (so don’t be in too much shock when you see a cell phone picture – oh, how we’ve come a long way). Since then, I wanted to bring the carb counts down two-fold for the recipe. Re-vamping it made an old favorite into a new, lower carb version.

We’ve replaced all of the onion with onion powder, added a bit more meat to round out the fattiness, and taken away some of the bell pepper without slacking on the flavor. This still has a full bodied, deep, and super delicious taste – just without the carbs!

Another great thing about this re-made version is that the servings are much bigger. You would think that 6 servings doesn’t sound like a lot, but you can certainly get more out of this. Each serving is a hearty, bowl full of soup with plenty of meat and pickins’ to dig through. Oh, and it re-heats perfectly (in the microwave, or on the stove)!

The Preparation

  • 32 oz. Pork Sausage
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 10 oz. Raw Spinach

2. Once the sausage is seared on one side, mix it together to allow it to cook slightly.

3. As the sausage cooks, slice green pepper into pieces. I optionally add 1 jalapeno more because I prefer the spiciness of fresh jalapeno.

4. Add the peppers and stir everything together well. Season with salt and pepper.
