Leftover Keto Turkey Soup Recipe

Soup is such a fun way to eat on the Keto diet during the cold season. Some of my other favorite low carb soups are Taco Soup, Egg Drop Soup, Broccoli Cheddar Soup, Cream of Mushroom Soup, and White Chicken Chili.

You can make this leftover turkey with cooked turkey after Thanksgiviung. I know we always have so much turkey leftovers we don’t know what to do with it all.

It is like a chicken soup, but skipping the noodles using low carb veggies to make it a great Keto soup for lunch, dinner, or snack throughout the day. You can prepare this gluten free delight it in about 30 minutes.

What is the carb count on this leftover turkey soup?

This recipe makes 5 servings with 7 grams of carbs per serving. To get the net carbs, you can subtract the 2 grams of fiber from the 7 carbs making it 5 total net carbs per serving.
