Low carb vegetable soup with Swiss Chard is hearty and filling keto family friendly meal. Nutritious and tasty keto vegan and vegetarian lunch or dinner.

When I am tired, there is nothing better for me than a good keto soup. In my family we eat soups every day, especially my kids like my keto soups. This low carb soup is also a vegetarian and vegan friendly and a perfect meal for your keto meatless Monday if you are not a vegetarian or vegan.

Swiss Chard Recipe

Cauliflower is probably the most important vegetable in low carb and keto recipes but Swiss Chard is somehow ignored. I like Swiss Chard and I am eating it regularly, it’s really popular here in Mediterranean cooking and we are growing our own in our garden. It’s low carb vegetable, packed with Vitamin A, C and Magnesium.

How to make low carb vegetable soup with Swiss Chard?

Heat 1 TBS of olive oil or coconut oil until hot.

Add chopped onion and chopped carrot and stir until onion becomes golden brown. If you want this low carb soup even lower in carbs, you can omit the carrot, but I like it and I use it in my recipes.

When onion is golden brown add chopped cauliflower and vegetable broth (vegetable stock) and water together with salt, spices and herbs. If you don’t like veggie version, you can put beef broth.

Cook the soup until it starts to boil, then add chopped Swiss Chard and tomato sauce, stir and cook 10 – 15 minutes covered. You can cook longer if you like, I prefer when vegetables is not completely soft and “killed”.
