This low carb soup somehow manages to be deliciously comforting and super refreshing all at the same time. Enjoy it in just a matter of minutes using your instant pot.
I don’t know about you, but I love a good cookbook. I know that in this day and age there are tons of free recipes out there, but something about holding a good cookbook in your hands just feels right.
A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of getting a copy of a brand new Keto Cookbook, Keto Cooking with your Instant Pot by Dr. Karen S. Lee.
It is full of gorgeous photos and delicious recipes. My favorite thing about this cookbook is that the recipes are all super unique, full of wholesome ingredients, and most importantly they are recipes that the entire family will love.
This Chicken Mulligatawny Soup was the first recipe that I tried from the cookbook and it is definitely a keeper! In fact, my entire family loved it – even my super picky husband went for seconds!
The recipe written below is exactly as it appears in the cookbook. I did make a few modifications for convenience and to suit my personal preference.
I prefer thick soups, so I reduced the chicken broth to one cup which worked great for my family. I also used boneless skinless chicken thighs since that is what I had on hand.
The recipe didn’t state to cut up the chicken, but the next time I make this I think I will cut it into bite sized pieces before cooking so that it will be easier for my littles to eat.
I also used frozen caulioflower rice, which I just stirred in when the pressure had released from the pot. I usually prefer fresh cauliflower, but I had some of the frozen variety on hand and was actually really happy with how it turned out.
Lastly, I used ginger paste from a tube instead of fresh ginger. This modification was also just due to what I already had on hand and it also worked well.
I hope that you enjoy the recipe, and the cookbook as much as me!
