Is Low Carb Wedding Soup Easy To Make?

Believe it or not, this soup is super convenient to put together!

If you are new to my blog, you’ll soon find out that I adore recipes that are easy and delicious!

Literally the only work you have to do is chop the carrots and celery…unless you can buy them already chopped.

What Do I Need To Make Wedding Soup?

Convenience comes into play here.

You can make your own homemade meatballs or just buy a bag of frozen meatballs.

Shredding or “ricing” your cauliflower by hand is a little time consuming, but you’re more than welcome to do it that way!

Having frozen riced cauliflower on hand is perfect for quick meals like this one.

Here is a list of everything you’ll need to make this delicious soup!!

  • avocado oil or olive oil
  • carrots
  • celery
  • minced garlic
  • Italian seasoning
  • fat free chicken broth
  • frozen riced cauliflower
  • meatballs (store-bought or homemade)
  • salt & pepper
  • fresh spinach
  • big pot (I use my Dutch oven)

What Makes This Soup Low Carb?

The fact that this soup recipe has cauliflower rice instead of pasta tells you right there that it is lower in carbs!

Traditional Italian wedding soup is such a wonderful, tasty soup that is enjoyed by so many.

It is normally made with a tiny round pasta called acini de pepe.

So using cauliflower rice keeps wedding soup low carb!

If you follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan, you know that carrots are allowed in an S or Fuel Pull setting as long as you don’t overdo it.

If you are worried about the carrots in this recipe, they are not going to cause your soup to be high in carbs…there are just enough carrots in 1 serving to give some texture and great flavor.

Can I Use Frozen Spinach In This Soup?

I honestly have not tried this recipe with frozen spinach, but I think it would work just fine.

Keep in mind that this recipe calls for 2 cups of fresh spinach. As it wilts and shrinks, it won’t make a lot.

Meatballs…Homemade or Store-bought

As mentioned earlier, convenience is wonderful and has a good place in life and in cooking!

I personally prefer making homemade food, but just to show you how much I love quick, convenient meals, I bought frozen meatballs at the grocery store for this recipe.

To be clear, most frozen, store-bought meatballs are not going to be 100% on plan for the Trim Healthy Mama.

I’m not suggesting that store bought meatballs are always the way to go, but once in a while, for the sake of convenience, we will use them.

There are many awesome homemade meatball recipes you could make and freeze…such as this Easy Homemade Meatball recipe.

Why Is It Called Wedding Soup?

I’m sorry to be the bearer of disappointing news, but the name of this soup has nothing to do with marriage between and man and a woman.

The original name comes from Italy and is called minestra maritata, meaning “married soup”.

See, it’s a marriage between meat and vegetables. I know, kinda interesting, but that’s the facts!
