Low Carb Oyster Stew with Mushrooms Fennel and Herbs. 9 total 7 net Carbs.

Its January and cold here where I am at and one of my favorite cold weather dishes is this oyster stew ! I love having a bowl of this creamy rich stew after being out in the cold , it really warms you all over body and soul . I add a few dashes of hot sauce for a little extra heat but that is a personal choice. This stew with the mushrooms , celery , onion and of course oysters is so filling you wont miss the crackers or croutons . ENJOY !
