Dumplings on Keto? Try this grandma’s soup recipe

Homemade soup was really rare in the western world a few years ago. In fact, you could eat it only at grandma’s, if you were lucky enough to have her. But, with the recent popularity of bone broth, homemade soups came back in fashion. Since the slow home cooking is the healthiest thing you can afford, here’s a Keto version of good old soup with dumplings that is almost free of carbs.

How do we make it Keto friendly?

Simply, we don’t use flour or any other starch. Instead, this version combines eggs with psyllium. This is the most natural keto-friendly way to make dumplings. I’ve seen some recipes with xantham gum, and I would like to point out that it’s a very unhealthy ingredient. Try to avoid it and go with good old psyllium. Furthermore, make sure that your bone broth is homemade! After that,  just play with the spices…
