    Got a recipe for soup - its really really tasty - is it low carb friendly ??

    1 head of cabbage - (sweetheart cabbage is very tasty but don't use an awful lot, a small head will do you)
    1 bunch of celery
    2 green peppers
    6 onions
    2 tins of tomato
    3 cubes of OXO Vegetable stock
    1.5 PINT of boiling water
    sea salt
    fresh ground pepper

    There are quite a few carbs in there but I guess it depends how much you have.
    The main culprits are the onions and tomatoes I think.

    Try cutting down the onions and using spring onions instead and half the tomatoes maybe.

    If you're looking for a carb friendly soup for induction, I use Knorr Chicken or beef stock (the liquid one - very low in carbs) and add water and herbs - got me through Atkins flu, and it's quick :)
