Creamy Chicken Soup

Most creamy Chicken soups have rice, skyrocketing your carb count. This soup has all the flavor without the carbs. For thanksgiving, you can take this recipe and sub turkey instead of chicken. Today the wind is blowing, and I am already looking forward to this warm comfort food.

You can make this without the nutritional yeast. I really like using it as a low carb thickener. My daughter introduced me to this, and I just love it, especially when I am making dairy-free dishes.

Serve with a beautiful side of Tomato Goat Cheese Galette
