Keto Chow Creamy Mushroom Soup

Keto Creamy Mushroom Soup

Creamy, comforting, savory and reminiscent of the classic cream of mushroom soup I grew up with. This soup comes together in just minutes but tastes like it’s been carefully simmered for hours. Its elegant enough to serve for a special occasion and satisfying enough for a day of activities. Trust me you will want to keep this in regular rotation.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 whole white mushrooms sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves plucked from the stem
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley minced
  • 1 whole bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 14 ounces mushroom broth
  • 1 scoop Savory Chicken Soup Keto Chow
  • 1/2 cup crème fraiche, sour cream, or heavy cream

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the mushrooms, herbs, salt and pepper to the pan and cook until most of the moisture has evaporated from the mushrooms and they begin to turn golden brown.
  • Carefully add the mushroom broth to the pan and bring it to a simmer.
  • When the broth comes to a simmer remove the pan from the heat, discard the bay leaf, and whisk in the keto chow.
  • Then mix in the crème fraiche or cream.
  • Serve piping hot, garnished with more parsley if desired.
  • Notes: The fresh herbs really make this soup special and are worth seeking out. But if you don’t have fresh herbs you can substitute 1/4 teaspoon each dried thyme and dried parsley instead. You can use fresh or dried bay leaves interchangeably.
  • You can puree the soup with an immersion blender if you want to drink it from a travel mug.
  • Want an even heartier soup? Add a couple ounces of cooked, crumbled sage flavored sausage like pork or turkey breakfast sausage

Notes

Yield: Approximately 20 ounces of soup

Soft Baked Keto Cookies

 

Soft Baked Keto Cookies & Cream Cookies

I am really excited about these cookies. They are the best cookies I have made since going keto. They are soft, tender and lightly sweet. They really behave and taste like traditional cookies and they are so easy to make. Everyone who tried them loved them!Have fun with this recipe and make it your own. Add your favorite sugar-free chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or seeds, or use sugar-free jam to make thumbprint cookies. You can even roll the dough out and use cookie cutters to cut out perfect cookies!

Ingredients

Instructions

Scoop Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Whisk together the keto chow, coconut flour, and baking powder in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Place the butter in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the sweetener.
  • When the sweetener is completely mixed with the butter add the egg and the vanilla extract.
  • Beat the mixture until the egg is completely mixed with the butter and sweetener. The mixture will look grainy and separated.
  • Add half of the dry ingredients to the bowl and blend. When that is fully combined add the rest of the dry ingredients.
  • Beat on low speed until its completely combined and creates a stiff dough. It should start to come together into a ball.
  • Scoop balls of dough that are about a tablespoon each onto an oiled cookie sheet, spacing them approximatley two inches apart.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until the cookies have puffed slightly and are just beginning to turn golden brown around the edges.
  • Yield: approximately 24 small cookies

Cut Out Cookies/Cookie Cutter Cookies

  • To make cut-out cookies chill the dough for approximately 30 minutes, roll it out between two sheets of oiled parchment paper to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes with your favorite cookie cutters. Don’t overbake or the cookies will become dry.
  • Reroll the scraps and repeat.
  • Place on an oiled cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes until the cookies are just beginning to turn golden brown around the edges.
    Soft Baked Keto Chow Cookies and Cream Cookies
  • This will yield approximately 10-12 cookies based on the size of your cookie cutters.

Notes

Please Note: This recipe calls for one measuring cup of Keto Chow powder, not one scoop.
Note about sweeteners: I tested this recipe with both an erythritol blend and with allusose. They both worked and gave good results. They erythritol resulted in a slightly sweeter cookie and is easier to roll out and shape. The allulose yielded a cookie that was a bit more soft and chewy.

Mean Green Mix & Match Keto Soup

Here’s a great way to add some greens to your day. This is a mix and match recipe, so you can use your favorite greens and herbs to make it your own. Get creative and have fun with it. Chef up a different soup every time you make it.It’s a great way to use up small amounts of fresh greens, herbs and broth leftover in the fridge.For instance, I used chicken broth, arugula, parsley, dried dill and lemon juice for the soup pictured here, but you could use vegetable broth, baby spinach, fresh cilantro, dried basil and a dash of your favorite hot sauce for a completely different creation.
