Last week, I served a new Reuben Soup that was a hit in our household.  It started out with a couple things to recommend it. It is low carb for my new keto diet—while at the same time, “normal” enough for the rest of the family.

Even better, it’s suitable for celebrating St Patrick’s Day. Just in time for the holiday.

Reuben Soup

I make corned beef only rarely—once every couple years. Though it certainly is tasty enough, it doesn’t quite strike me as health food. It’s delicious with boiled potatoes and cabbage, but my favorite way to eat it is a Reuben Sandwich. With sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and thousand island dressing the sandwich is a taste sensation. But one that will never do on my diet!

A tasty bite!

Instead, this Reuben Soup, originally from the blog Bare Feet in the Kitchen, was the perfect alternative. I removed the potatoes, since they aren’t keto—and aren’t in a Reuben anyway. Then I used Xanthan gum to thicken instead of rice flour. But we decided that the soup was plenty thick before the thickener, so that’s now a permanent change. Meaty and creamy, this low-carb Reuben soup blends corned beef, swiss cheese and sauerkraut into a soup that’s perfect St Patrick’s Day--or any time. 

The family loved having an unusual treat–and the prospect of more, when the holiday arrives!  Whether you are prepping for St Pat’s or just surviving the winter, Reuben Soup is a great option!
