  • 8 oz Italian sausage meat casings removed
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 6 small mushrooms sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower rice
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum


  • Brown the ground sausage in a large pot. Halfway through cooking, add onion and mushrooms. Once the meat is browned, add garlic. Stir and saute for one minute.
  • Add the butter to the pot. Once melted, add almond flour and stir to combine.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and cauliflower rice. Simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour in the heavy cream and sprinkle in the xanthan gum. Stir until fully combined.


Italian sausage with herbs is recommended, as it’s more flavorful than ground pork. If you only have ground pork on hand, add 1/2 to 1 tsp of Italian herbs to the soup.
The almond flour and xanthan gum can be omitted, but the soup will not thicken.
