- Begin by heating 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the finely diced red onion and celery. Sauté these aromatic vegetables, stirring frequently, until they become soft and translucent. This should take approximately 4-5 minutes.
- Introduce the finely chopped white mushrooms, ground turkey, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and onion powder to the skillet. Don’t forget to season with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to enhance the flavors. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the turkey loses its pink hue and the mushrooms start releasing their juices. This typically takes around 5-7 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to medium, then pour in the 6 cups of organic chicken broth. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes until it’s thoroughly heated. Before adding the heavy cream to the soup, take a spoonful of the hot liquid from the skillet and blend it with the cream. This will temper the cream and prevent curdling. Stir this mixture into the skillet and continue simmering for another 1-2 minutes.
- Add the frozen riced cauliflower and 1½ cups of shredded Italian blend cheese to the skillet. Stir well to combine all the ingredients. Allow it to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the cauliflower is heated through, and the cheese has melted completely. Taste the soup and adjust the seasonings to your liking.
- Remove the skillet from heat and ladle the creamy soup into individual soup bowls. To serve, generously top each bowl with the remaining shredded cheese and a sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley, if desired. Now, all that’s left to do is savor the delightful flavors of your homemade Creamy Keto Turkey Mushroom Soup. Enjoy!
- *To avoid curdling, add a small amount of hot liquid from the skillet to the heavy cream before incorporating it into the soup.
