Spicy Cheese & Tomato Soup

12 Oct

low carb for life

As winter draws closer, those summer salads just don’t seem to satisfy like a steaming bowl of soup. Of course there’s bone broth or even stew, but sometimes it’s nice to indulge in an old favourite. Mine was tomato soup accompanied by a cheese sandwich for dunking. Thankfully the flabby white bread is out but a low carb bread rollmakes for a suitable replacement. But it’s more about how the cold cheese hitting the hot soup creates a texture and flavour that seems to warm the soul.

This recipe goes a little further, with the addition of red lentils, chili and bacon. The lentils can be left out if the extra 1.4 net carbs is a problem, but they give the soup a more full bodied texture and additional fibre. The result is a hearty winter warmer that is surprisingly filling.

½ can plum or chopped tomatoes
