If you’re squeamish about fat in your soups, you may want to either refrigerate and skim the fat off the soup, or use fully cooked and drained Italian Sausage in your soup.I tend to see fat as a good thing for Keto

Use frozen cauliflower for this recipe as the unfrozen, riced cauliflower will cook to mush. Otherwise you could use large fresh flowerets.

The fish sauce just enhances the flavour there is no fishing flavor

I add some left over cabbage(chopped into noodle lengths) added to the soup with the frozen cauliflower but other vegetables would that take longer to cook would work

This soup freezes very well, but it reheats even better. The flavors meld overnight, and the fat forms a layer on top if you choose to remove it.
