Keto Broccoli Cheese Soup

Spread the love

Soup has always been one of my favorites foods, and I don't mean homemade. I'm talking Progresso canned chicken noodle soup! Crazy, I know, but it's always been a comfort for me, especially in the winter! However, after going keto I knew that had to change. Not only did I cut back on all the processed foods I ate, but I upped the fat 10 fold. My new favorite soup is this Keto Broccoli Cheese Soup!

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

The recipe is as simple as it sounds. You're two main ingredients are broccoli and cheddar cheese, anything else is just added to your liking. I'm a fan of celery and onion so I went that route! Most low carb soup recipes such as this one are minimal in their ingredient list which make them so great for the whole family. This one takes less than 30 minuets to whip up!

Low Carb Soup

Low carb doesn't mean low in flavor. Most low carb soups are packed with flavor and fat so you're not missing out on the noodles, rice or beans! Check out the 50 Best Low-Carb Soup Recipes if you can't take my word for it! Believe it or not low carb soups are some of the most easy keto recipes!

Keto Broccoli Cheese Soup: Low Carb Thickener

Now I'm sure you're all wondering what I used to make this Keto Broccoli Cheese Soup as thick as it looks and is. Well, the magic ingredient, or better yet the X factor as we've been known to call it is xanthum gum! If you don't have some in your cupboard we highly recommend it. We've also used it in our Low Carb Green Bean Casserole and Keto Gravy which are two must make recipes! If you don't love soup surely someone in your family does so give this Keto Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe a try!
