Dairy-Free Masala Chicken Soup {low-carb}

Please share:

When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I went to my first Indian restaurant. My husband had found one in the new town we moved to and loved it and said I had to try it. Prior to that pregnancy, I had an aversion anything spicy, so Indian food just never sounded like my cup of tea.

So I went to the restaurant and had chicken tikka masala and naan. The masala was good, but oh man, the naan sold me. I was an Indian-foodie for life after that. Although I’ll admit I never ventured much past masala and curry.

the one Indian dish I make on the regular around here is our family’s favorite Coconut Curry Chicken. I make a double batch and we have leftovers for a week. But it was time for a new (and easier) favorite to take the spotlight in our kitchen.

Enter this low-carb dairy-free masala soup that is enriched with collagen protein. I love it because it’s soup-er (haha!) easy to make and everyone loves it (they all went back for seconds, that’s how I know they actually like it and aren’t just being nice).
