There has not been a more Keto soup than a Broccoli and Cheese. While in the original recipe generally includes flour and the milk to make a roux to give you a thick soup, it is a completely unnecessary. In my recipe I have kept it is a really simple and used in the broccoli stalks which I puree to give in the soup body. The heavy whipping cream and the cheese as well add body to the soup. It is a perfect for a cold winter day and is such a hearty soup it would even warm in the cockles of the Night King’s cold dead heart. Anyway, enough jabber jabber, enjoy in the recipe.

How do you like your soup?
The beauty of the soup, in general is that you can be have it cold or a hot, you can be have it thick or a thin, chunky or a smooth, it is just a wide range of the options when it comes to making it. For in this recipe I chose to the strain it through a sieve for a nice velvety texture but at the same time I left most of the florets intact so I still get that nice chunky bite when eating it. I have used a onions and garlic in this soup and if you want to lower in the crab count even more you can be go right ahead and skip those. To give to your soup an a extra fat boost just add to a tablespoon of the butter on it while serving. You can be also a chop up some chicken and add it and an a egg yolk can be a added for a extra creaminess.
If broccoli is not your cup of the soup, you can try my recipe for a Keto cream of the chicken soup or try my Asian style seafood soup.
