Tips for Keto Broccoli Soup:

This recipe is already so very simple but here are a few more tips I do to make my life easier.

  • I use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them.
  • Shred your own cheese instead of buying pre-shredded. The pre-shedded kind does not as smoothly.

How to Make Smooth Broccoli Cheese Soup:

You can use an immersion blender or stick blender if you prefer the broccoli to be more blended. We love the pieces of broccoli but I know some people prefer it all blended together.

If you do not have one of these, try using a potato masher.  Either way you make this, it is the best comfort food!

Serve with your Favorite Toppings:

This is totally optional but I love a little extra cheese on top.

Some people also like to add a little cream cheese to the soup while cooking. Just use what you prefer in this Broccoli Cheddar soup.

I also like to add a little garlic. The onion and garlic blends so well together and smells divine in this low carb Broccoli Cheese soup.

Can you make this soup in a Slow Cooker?

You can certainly try this recipe in your crock pot instead of the stove top. We love to do this when we will be away all day or need to come home to dinner waiting.

Place all the ingredients except for the cheese and cream in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Then stir in the heavy whipping cream and the cheese. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Keto broccoli cheese soup slow cooker recipe is so tasty and always a hit with everyone. Even the kids love it!

Still trying to understand this Keto diet?

First of all, I know it can seem overwhelming initially. However, once you understand the Keto lifestyle it is very simple.

There is a great book for beginners here that you might want to pick up. It is a really great resource to help get you started on this Keto journey.

It’s a lot to take in but basically the ketogenic diet is a diet high in fat with healthy fats for weight loss. The diet calls for a lot of nut butters, peanut butter and low or no net carb snacks called fat bombs.

You will also want to keep things sugar free. Oils like coconut oil, olive oil and mct oil are used.

Once you get used to this diet, many report that it becomes a lifestyle and they really like it. As a result, many people report higher levels of energy. They feel better and have more regulated blood sugar.

Plus, weight loss is fairly easy while also filling full and satisfied. This is a key component as to why it works for so many.

If you want to lose weight, this is a great plan to try.  With so many low carb recipes,  it will be easy to stay on track with the ketogenic diet

    This soup was amazing! I didn’t even need the Xantham gum for thickening., it was perfect on its own! So I am making it again in days!

  2. 4 stars
    Flavor is terrific. I had to double the Xanthan gum to get it to thicken but I bet when I cool and reheat it’ll help. Very very delicious.
