    the title is it really. I have lovely chicken stock historically it would have gone into beans/lentils. Looking for low carb uses.

    Soup. My regular soups include spinach, mushroom, tomato and red pepper, cabbage and broccoli. I don't use recipes, but the general method is
    Fry half an onion in butter or olive oil in my big soup pan.
    Add stock.
    Add vegetables (pre-washed spinach comes straight out of the bag, tomatoes and peppers are usually pre-roasted, cabbage and broccoli maybe fried, mushrooms are fried and/or soaked dried ones).
    Chunks of cooked celeriac or the addition of cheese (brie, goats cheese) or cream add to the thickness. Meats, eg a bit of cooked chicken, add to interest.
    Add herbs, spices, lemon juice, seasoning to taste.
    Blitz using a hand blender.
    A good stock is where it all starts.
    Generally serves six.

    Make a Thai curry by adding a tin of coconut milk and some Thai curry paist, use your choose of fish or meat along with some green veg.

    Many soaps use checken stock maybe with a little cream.

    Add to your slow cooker with some cheap meat.

    You beat me to it. The soups I tend to make with chicken stock are mushroom, fennel, cauliflower, celery, chicken and veg.
