Ingredients

  • 10 cups chicken stock see my recipe here
  • 3 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 pound ground beef I use 85%
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 3 garlic cloves grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 1/2 cup super fine almond flour
  • 8 ounces raw spinach leaves roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional:

  • 1 parmesan cheese rind

Instructions

  • Add the chicken stock to a large pot and bring to a simmer.
  • Add 1 egg, garlic, almond flour, basil, parsley, salt and pepper to a bowl and mix.  Add in the ground beef and pork and mix just until combined, do not over mix.  Using a small melon baller/scooper, form the mini meatballs, then drop them into the simmering stock.  
  • Add in the carrots and parmesan cheese rind (if you have one) simmer for 10 minutes. Add in the cauliflower rice and spinach, then continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes.
  • Scramble the 2 remaining eggs and slowly add them into the soup, while stirring the soup.
  • Cook for a few more minutes and allow to cool slightly before serving with some grated parmesan cheese and a garnish of parsley.

Notes

The carrots are optional, so if you are on strict Keto, you can certainly omit them.
