However, these days it’s a rare thing that he pulls me aside and asks me to make him something to eat.

He is getting to an age where I recognize that these moments must be cherished before they fade into a precious distant memory.

Allowing Children In The Kitchen

Matthew has become a bit of a chef himself. In fact, it’s because he was so picky about his food that I pushed him into the kitchen to learn to fend for himself.

This came after hearing him whine one too many times that he didn’t want this or that for dinner.

Matt must have been around 12 years old when I pointed to the fridge and pantry and told him he had permission to feed himself. Frankly, it was freeing and it forced him to get creative.

I am a firm believer that allowing our children in the kitchen creates an appreciation for food like nothing else. Not to mention that it’s a life skill that they will always use.

However, this does not mean that I don’t enjoy cooking a meal that the ENTIRE family will enjoy. Today, I rarely enter the kitchen without a notebook.

After all, you never know when a new recipe will be birthed. Which is why when he made the request I was ready to take notes. His request is what inspired this low carb tomato bacon cheddar soup.

Unfortunately, our Matthew has not yet joined us in eating a low carb keto diet, but this mom is hopeful. It took his sister a while to see the benefits, so being patient with him is key.

With diabetes running on both sides of our family, it would do him good to learn to eat lower in carbs and clean up his diet.

Creating Memories One Low Carb, Keto Dish At A Time

I figured that if I was going to make Matthew a tomato soup, I was going to make sure it was a memorable experience. This is why my low carb tomato soup featured bacon and cheddar.

The combination of bacon, cheddar cheese, and tomato is simply stunning. I knew he would enjoy these flavors and just maybe it could persuade him to join on us on this low carb keto lifestyle.

Well, I am happy to report that Matthew loved my low carb tomato bacon cheddar soup. However, true to himself he had to thicken it further with a flour roux. Yup, he still hasn’t made the crossover.

Maybe the revelation will come the next time he invites me into the kitchen to cook for him. 😉

My low carb tomato bacon cheddar soup is packed with flavor and thickened naturally with cheddar cheese and heavy whipping cream.

  1. Oh my this looks amazing. I did have a question about your servings. It says in your nutrition facts that a serving is one cup and it makes 20 servings. Is that right? Thanks so much.
     
  2. Hi, someone posted a link to this yummy recipe on a facebook group I'm in. When I made it, I only got about 9 servings of 1 cup each. Did I do something wrong? Or should it be 1/2 cup per serving? thanks for a delicious recipe!

      Hi Cheryl, thank you sooooo much for pointing this out. I obviously missed the mark here somehow. I recalculated everything again and created a new label. Thanks again for catching this ?
