I would really appreciate any favorite low carb soup recipes you'd like to share.
Most soups without potatoes or noodles are pretty low carb. If you are making them yourself, the same applies, leave out the potato or noodle. Those are my favorite soups.
Taken from a different forum:

I havent tried the crab one yet, but I really liked the first one, and the second was pretty tasty too.
I got this from an SBD forum. We like it!
Taco Junk (all SBD phases)
You can use it on top of salad, or as burritos in a whole wheat tortilla or pita. It's sooooo good and freezes well, too!
1 pound ground turkey breast (or extra-lean ground beef)
14 1/2 ounces diced tomatoes -- canned, no sugar added
14 1/2 ounces black beans Ã¢ÂÂ» canned, drained
14 ÃÂ½ ounces garbanzo beans (chick peas) Ã¢ÂÂ» canned, drained
1 package ranch-style dressing mix
2 cups salsa or picante sauce
Brown meat and drain fat. Put all ingredients in crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours.
You can simmer on the stove for about the same amt of time.
I only used half a pkg of the taco sauce and dressing mix as they're too salty for my taste.
