What makes our recipe different from traditional chicken noodle soup recipes? We do not use traditional noodles in our recipe.
Instead, we use thinly sliced cabbage to replace traditional noodles in the recipe.
Now, if you think you might miss traditional noodles in the soup, let me assure you that you won’t. Honestly, the traditional noodles in chicken noodle soup are pretty tasteless. Instead, it’s the flavorful broth and seasonings that gives chicken noodle soup its delicious taste.
Now, about the cabbage “noodles” in the recipe.
First, slice them as thick or as thin as you prefer traditional noodles. Slice the cabbage a bit thicker for fettuccine-type noodles and much thinner for angel hair or vermicelli-type noodles.
Second, cook the cabbage “noodles” according to how you like traditional noodles cooked. Cook the cabbage “noodles” for a shorter amount of time for al dente and a longer amount of time for softer “noodles.”
However, you can use other types of keto pasta that you prefer. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time depending on the type of keto pasta that you use.
In addition, if you want to add even more flavor to this delicious recipe, use fresh turmeric instead of turmeric powder. Use about 2 Tablespoons of freshly grated turmeric root to take your soup to the next level of flavor.
Time Saving Tips
Use the chopping blade with your food processor to dice the onion, celery, carrot, and garlic.
Use the slicing blade with your food processor to quickly slice your cabbage into “noodles.”
You can even use packaged coleslaw cabbage mix instead of slicing a head of cabbage.
Boneless chicken thighs can be used in place of bone-in thighs to save you from having to shred the meat off the bones. Just be sure to cut the chicken into bite-size pieces before cooking.
