Could you leave out the carrots for low carb? Then what would the total carb be?

This was great! I had 3 servings. I left out the bell pepper. They only go well with tomato sauce dishes to me. Also, I added Adobo and parsley. It was sooo good.

What could I use instead of carrots? Sounds really good but I would like to maybe lower the carbs a little.
This is absolutely delicious. I used red cabbage which made my broth quite sweet and I added chili peppers to make it sweet and spicy. I didn't find it too salty but I didn't add the extra salt, I knew the broth would make it salty. I'm also not following a low carb diet so next time I'm going to add parsnips. It is filling, low cal and it makes a TON. I'm going to freeze half of it for sure. So, so tasty.
