What is Whey?

Whey is the liquid that separates from curd and which remains after making cheese or yogurt at home.

It is a golden drink of the centuries filled with probiotics and healthy bacteria you have been looking for. 

A natural Whey has regained its popularity, because of the rise in homemade fermentation and love for bacteria-rich recipes and products.

Natural Whey filled with protein and calcium is a great addition to our lifestyle and can be used in so many varieties. 

Whey adds healthy bacteria, minerals, calcium, and probiotics to our digestive system without even thinking about it. I have written a lot more about using whey in our post about Homemade Natural Whey Protein Drink

You can easily make your own Whey at home while making our Homemade Farmers Cheese Recipe

Whey could be used in so many recipes as a replacement for Stock or Broth. 

I have put together a great collection of over 31 various Keto and Low Carb Soup Recipes from various Food Bloggers for you to get some ideas.

Is a Whey Soup Keto?

Using Whey and root vegetables that do not contain too much starch make this soup not only a perfect Low Carb Soup but also fully Keto Soup Recipe. 

Root Vegetables.

To add more benefits, I have chosen only a Root Vegetables for our Homemade Whey Soup. 

Root vegetables are all of the edible plants, grown under the soil, which is perfectly kept and grown throughout the year. During wintertime, when very few vegetables are available, root vegetables are a big part of our daily diet, since they are always available. Root vegetables can be kept in your cellar for several months after your harvest. 

I have picked only a few of them, the one which are mostly available all around the world. But you can experiment and add whatever root vegetables you have on hand or like. 

Also while cutting the vegetables, try to make really small squares, so your cooking time is less and therefore more probiotics are saved.

How does Whey Root Vegetable Soup Taste like?

The first time I have made a soup using whey, I was shocked by how great it tastes. The first spoon took me straight into my childhood when our mum used to make sour potato soup on a regular basis. I have completely forgotten about it since we are not using potatoes in our lifestyle for years already. 

It is funny how one spoon can bring so many memories. I am so happy I have experimented with Whey, especially adding it into a soup. The slightly tingly and sour taste is unbelievably satisfying and makes you want more of it. This creamy soup without adding 0 creams in it is just mind-blowing to the taste. And all of the benefits you get from this soup are worth making on a regular basis. In the summer, the soup is really refreshing with adding fresh veggies and in the winter it warms you up from within.

Whey will not only add extra protein into your soup but will also add slightly sour taste and creamy texture.
