average rating is 3 out of 5, based on 150 votes

Low-Carb Turkey Minestrone—a hearty, protein-packed twist on the classic Italian soup. This dish is crafted especially for those following the rapid weight loss program.

Here are some serving suggestions to complement the Low-Carb Turkey Minestrone:

  1. Cauliflower Breadsticks: Instead of traditional breadsticks, opt for a low-carb version made with cauliflower. They're a perfect dipper for the minestrone.

  2. Salad: A light, crispy salad with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and a lemon vinaigrette. It'll add a fresh contrast to the hearty minestrone.

  3. Roasted Brussel Sprouts: Drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt, and roasted to perfection. The caramelized edges will complement the soup's flavors.

  4. Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles): If you want an even heartier meal, you can serve the minestrone over a bed of zucchini noodles.

  5. Parmesan Crisps: A crunchy, cheesy side that's low-carb and perfect for adding texture to your meal.

  6. Low carb Garlic Bread: Made with almond flour, it’s a delicious and suitable replacement for traditional garlic bread.

  7. Stuffed Mushrooms: Filled with a mixture of cream cheese, herbs, and perhaps a bit of sausage, these are a flavorful addition.

  8. Herb-Infused Olive Oil: A simple side where guests can dip their cauliflower breadsticks or keto bread, flavored with rosemary, garlic, and other herbs.

  9. Chia Seed Pudding: For dessert, a refreshing chia seed pudding flavored with vanilla or cocoa can be a light yet satisfying finish.

  10. Steamed Asparagus: Drizzled with lemon juice and sprinkled with parmesan, they can be a light side to balance the rich flavors of the minestrone.

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 medium onion, diced
