Keto – Broccoli Cheese Soup

Radom Pics 014This soup is perfect for living the Keto Diet lifestyle.  To bump up the fat content, it contains heavy whipping cream in place of milk and A LOT of cheese.  This broccoli cheese soup will not let anyone leave the table hungry…even those non-keto people.  This makes about 16 10-12oz servings so for me, a busy mom, this was a perfect prep food that would last all week long.

Please give it a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 2 large stalks of celery, diced
  • 1/2 of a large onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 7 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 8 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 24 ounces of cheddar cheese
  • 1-3 Tablespoon of almond flour

Directions:

  • In a large soup pot, over medium heat, cook the following: butter, carrots, celery, onion and garlic until soft.  About 4-5 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth and cover.  Cook for about 30 minutes
  • Add broccoli and cook covered for 30-45 minutes until broccoli gets softened
  • Add the whipping cream, cheese and almond flour (until desired thickness).  Cook on medium, stirring constantly until all cheese is melted.  Once cheese is melted reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes longer
  • Serve and Enjoy!!
