Eating Keto and need a yummy soup idea?

Then you NEED to try this delicious creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup! It’s such a comforting low carb meal to help keep warm this winter, and happens to be very EASY to make.

I like that there are just a few simple ingredients needed for this recipe, and you can keep it meatless, or add in bacon, ham, or shredded chicken at the end. SO good.

Additional Notes

Recipe adapted from HeyKetoMama.com 

Tips:
  • This recipe makes enough soup for about three bowls, so if you were feeding a large family I’d consider doubling it.

  • Xantham gum is a great way to thicken low carb soups and sauces. You could skip it, but a very small amount makes the broth super rich, creamy and gives it a thicker texture.

We LOVED this cheesy soup! 🧀

I made this Keto Broccoli Cheddar soup for a quick lunch recently and it has great flavor and texture. In fact, it was gone in just a few minutes, so next time I’m making a larger batch for leftovers. If you’re eating low carb, I think you’ll really enjoy this idea and want to add it to your meal rotation!

    That looks so good! My husband and I want to go on keto but it looks overwhelming for me to figure out the do’s and dont’s because I am working 65-70 hours a week right now.

    • Pauline

      Krisp: Google NSNG And Vinnie Tortorich on Facebook. No sugar no grains. It’s a little tough at first but there’s no counting macros, points, calories etc. we eat bacon and eggs and sausage for breakfast. Everything you eat is full fat. No skim or fat free anything

      • Krisp

        Thank you Pauline 🙂

    • Lauren

      The first stage is induction, in which you eat 20grams of carbs per week and fatty foods. That lasts about 2 weeks, then you slowly add carbs and other foods in. This has been the only effective diet I’ve been on and the easiest to do. Give it a shot!

  2. Nikki

    Can you replace the xantham gum with flour or cornstarch? This would be amazing with some shredded chicken.

    • Heidi N

      You can definitely use them to thicken but they will add carbs

      • Nikki

        Thank you! That’s fine, I’m not doing keto.

    • Day-to-day

      I used a little almond flour earlier as I had no xgum. Came out really well, thanks so much for the recipe.

      • Lina D

        Oh awesome! Thanks for sharing that tip.

  3. Molly Mi

    Yum! Sent to hubby to make as a suggestion to use our leftover ham.

    • Lina D

      Oh great idea!

  7. Rita Darnell

    This sounds delicious!! I like the size of the recipe, I can make it & not have tons of leftovers.

  8. Helen in Meridian

    I found Xanthum gum in bulk at WINCO, so you could buy just a little to try it. It was by the flour or maybe in the bulk spices at WINCO.

    • Lina D

      Thanks!

  9. Linda adams

    How many carbs? Thank you

  10. Petra Hisatake

    This was amazing!! I will probably make a double batch next time! I chopped up the broccoli pretty fine and added a little extra. It almost didn’t need the thickener! Great flavor!!

    • Lina D

      Oh thanks for sharing!

  11. Ashley P

    I made this and it was very yummy. However, I have never eaten xanthum gum before and this could be the last time. I have some gi issues and I became suddenly ill and let’s just say I’ll spare you the rest of the details. I don’t think it probably causes this type of reaction in everyone but I just wanted others to know if they have gi issues.
