  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

In the bottom of a 3-quart sauce pan, sauté garlic, thyme and onion with butter and olive oil until the aroma becomes apparent. To the pot add bone broth and water. Cook on medium until soup reaches a boil, then reduce to medium-low and continue to simmer for about a half-hour. Add in asparagus pieces, and cook until just tender but still a bright green. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Puree in blender until smooth. Serve with parsley garnish.

Savory 4-Mushroom Soup

This savory soup gets the nod of approval from mushroom lovers and low-carb dieters alike. A flavorful and hearty lead-in for your Thanksgiving meal, this soup can also be a meal in itself. Leftovers lend themselves to lunch, but don’t expect to have this around long as it is that good.



6 Tbs. butter
3 Tb. olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
2 Tbs. dried sage
1 Tb. dried rosemary
1 tsp. marjoram
1 package baby Portobello mushrooms, washed and sliced
3 cups fresh shitake mushrooms, washed and sliced
1 package regular mushrooms, washed and sliced
3 cups oyster mushrooms, washed and sliced
4 cups chicken broth, homemade is best
2 cups water
1/2 cup light cream or half and half
1 cup sherry
Salt and pepper to taste

To make:

In the bottom of a 3-quart saucepan, melt half the butter and add some olive oil to the pan. Cook the mushrooms in this mixture in batches, adding more butter or oil as necessary. Remove each batch of mushrooms from the pot and place in a bowl temporarily, until all of the mushrooms have been lightly fried in this manner.

Add more oil and butter to the same pot that the mushrooms were cooked in. Lightly sauté the garlic, onion and herbs with olive oil and butter on medium-low heat. Add the chicken broth, water and sherry wine. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sautéed mushrooms to the pot of liquid. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a summer and continue to simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the wine is thoroughly cooked off. Add the cream and remove from heat.

You can either puree the soup in a blender until smooth, or puree half of the soup; however, leave some of the mushrooms whole for added texture.

Now you are ready with delicious low-carb soups for Thanksgiving feast. And your guests won’t even notice it’s “low-carb!”
