Low Carb Spicy Thai Soup

I have been sick with a sore throat (and some seriously bad sunburn!) for the past couple of days. I don't get sick very often at all but when I do, I crave soup. Canned soups are typically high in carbs and chemicals and low in flavor. I opted instead to throw together some homemade soup. This soup has only FIVE ingredients, yep - you read that right and it is also super easy to throw together and it tastes wonderful!! This recipe makes 4 bowls of soup.

Spicy Thai Soup

2C 100% Natural Thai Ginger Broth
2C Water
1lb Ground Pork
1C Shredded Cabbage
1T Coconut Oil

Start by sauteing your ground pork in your coconut oil. You want to brown your pork and then add your shredded cabbage and cook it until your pork is completely done. This is to decrease the cooking time after the liquids have been added, so less of your liquids cook off. Once your pork is completely cooked through, add in the water and broth. Bring it to a boil and then lower the heat a bit and allow it to cook for an additional 10 minutes. It's really that easy!! This can of course be served with crusty bread for the carb eaters in the family but I ate it just like this and it was WONDERFUL.

Here's the carb breakdown:

2C Broth (12g) - This broth isn't super low in carbs but it packs so much flavor that it's well worth the added carbs!!
2C Water (0g)
1lb Ground Pork (0g)
1C Shredded Cabbage (3g)
1T Coconut Oil (0g)

15g Total Net Carbs/Four Servings = 3.75g/per bowl ^_^
