Keto Peruvian Chicken Soup – Aguadito de Pollo


We are lucky to live near this Peruvian restaurant that serves the most amazing soup called aquadito de pollo (Peruvian chicken soup). 

It contains chicken, vegetables, rice, and lots of cilantro.  The flavors meld together so wonderfully that of course, we had to find a way to make this soup low-carb/keto friendly.  Typically, the vegetables used include corn, peas, carrots and potatoes as well as rice. 

However, for the sake of keeping this recipe as low-carb/keto as possible, we only used celery and green beans.  To replace the absence of the subtle sweetness found in higher carb vegetables like carrots and corn, we opted to add a little Swerve/Monkfruit to really round all the flavors together.  In addition, we also substituted the rice for cauliflower rice. 

This way you can still enjoy the flavors of this wonderful soup without all the carbs.  Also, don’t forget a squeeze of lime at the end to provide that wonderful zesty Peruvian finish!

This soup infuses flavors of chicken and vegetable broth into a zesty cilantro profile with oils of chicken glistening up on top. 

All this makes for a nice soup meal that comes in at a low-carb/keto friendly ~2g of net carb per serving.
