  1. This recipe is so delicious. No noodles, dumplings or rice. If was so good and very filling. I could eat it again and again. Will definitely make again.

    • Hi Kan,

      I have never used arabic gum before so I can’t be sure what effect it will have. I’d love to know how it turns out if you try it.

  2. Making it for the second time tonight. It’s absolutely delicious. I use the new Swansons “crafted” roasted chicken broth and extra chives.

  3. I love this recipe so much! I’ve been looking for a good Campbell’s sub and I loved the taste of this, but I was also looking for something I could use in casseroles and other stuff like the can (but without the extra salt and additives), so what I ended up doing is cooking the recipe exactly the same, but at the end I blended it in batches with my ninja, then blended it again further with the super shake/bullet attachment until it was completely pureed and smooth and it’s AMAZING!!! I use it for anything I’d use the canned stuff for! Thanks for this delicious recipe!

  5. I make mine with chopped kale and/or spinach(even chopped zucchini) sautéed with the onion and celery.
    Add bacon bits and a little grated cheddar with chives.

  6. The whole family loved this! I added a little sage. I believe you could easily add (non-keto) peas and carrots, or keto-friendly veggies too, and make a pot pie out of this. Absolutely amazing recipe. I’ve already been asked for the recipe.

    • Thank you for your kind words, Janet! I’m so glad your family loved it, and you’re right, I think with a few veggies and maybe a little more xanthan gum, it would make a delicious pot pie.
