I would love to try that, it sounds very good to me minus the onion, lol. I just never cared for onions.
I enjoy meals that we can serve the whole family together. Sometimes eating low carb makes me feel like I am eating alone, because not everyone always wants what I am eating, so I fix the family one thing, and go off in a corner with my little burger patty...lol.
This is a recipe that I found on a low carb website last winter. I wasn't sure if I would like it with the pumpkin in it. It thickens the soup, making it hardy, without a pumpkin taste. My husband ate it and liked it and he is not doing low carb.
BEEFY-MUSHROOM SOUP 2 pounds ground beef 1 small onion, chopped, 2 1/2 ounces 1 clove garlic, minced 16 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced 15 ounces canned pumpkin 14 ounce can beef broth or 2 cups homemade beef broth 2 cups chicken broth 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup dry white wine or water 1-2 teaspoons salt, or to taste 1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large pot, brown the ground beef along with the onion, mushrooms and garlic; drain the fat. If using canned broth, add water to make 2 cups. Add the pumpkin to the ground beef mixture; blend well then add the broth and bouillon. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 20-30 minutes. Add the cream and wine or water; simmer 10-15 minutes longer. Adjust the seasoning, if needed.
