Low Carb Smoky Sausage Stew

This Keto sausage recipe is rich with flavor from a spiced broth and low carb veggies. Our low carb stew has been prepared with pork sausages, tender red onion, aromatic garlic, eggplant, juicy bell pepper, diced tomatoes, smoky paprika, fragrant cumin, ground coriander, chicken stock, and a touch of xanthan gum. This makes a great warming winter Keto dinner or low carb lunch option.

Do I Have to Use Xanthan Gum?

Xanthan gum is a great gluten free and Keto-friendly thickening agent, perfect for adding depth and richness to soups, stews and sauces. We have used just a 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum to this low carb stew to transform the sauce into a thickened gravy. If you would prefer not to use xanthan gum, you may simply omit this and serve the stew as it is. The sauce however, will be thinner and not as rich.

Serving Suggestions

This Keto sausage stew is perfect served over cauliflower rice or a cauliflower mash. It would also be great with some toasted, buttered low carb toast or Keto dinner rolls for mopping up the sauces. You will find a range of Keto-friendly breads and inspiring low carb sides in our sides section. Please be sure to adjust your macros to account for any changes or additions to the recipe.

    A delicious change with sausages, very filling could do vegetarian/vegan version without sausages. Have served with cauliflower mash & rice on 2 occasions both good 😊
