Recipe Ingredients and Variations
PROTEIN – Ground beef is a staple in a low-carb diet. It’s affordable, easy to cook, and complements nearly any seasoning profile. However, this recipe lends itself to nearly any and all kinds of protein, even leftovers! Chicken, turkey, sausage, slices of summer sausage, even frozen meatballs will work if time is short.
VEGETABLES – Choose veggies that are low carb but healthy and filling: cauliflower, tomatoes, celery, peas, green beans, mushrooms, and even a bag of mixed vegetable medley. Again, leftovers will work here as well.
SEASONINGS – A little beef broth, garlic and some Italian seasoning are all that’s needed for a rich and flavorful soup.
How To Make Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Recipe Tips and Time Savers
Save time and use a bag of frozen veggies in this recipe, no need to thaw! Frozen cauliflower rice is a quick and easy option as well. Or create a signature soup using low-carb leftovers.
Keep soup covered in the refrigerator up to 4 days and reheat on the stovetop. Freeze in quart-sized zippered bags with the date labeled on the outside for up to 4 weeks. Thaw in a bowl in the refrigerator (in case the bag leaks) and reheat in a pot on low heat on the stove.
Low-carb hamburger soup makes a healthy and energizing workday lunch, so take and reheat in the microwave if that is more accessible.
