This Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup is so yummy and filling, you won’t even miss the potatoes! It’s an excellent low carb option for any Fall meal!
2 tablespoons Butter
1/ 8 Cup White Onion
1/2 teaspoon Garlic, finely minced
2 Cups Chicken Broth
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 Cup Broccoli, chopped into bite size pieces
1 Tablespoon Cream Cheese
1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese; shredded
2 Slices Bacon; Cooked and Crumbled (Optional)
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional, for thickening)
In large pot, saute onion and garlic with butter over medium heat until onions are softened and translucent.
Add broth and broccoli to pot.Cook broccoli until tender. Add salt, pepper and desired seasoning.
Place cream cheese in small bowl and heat in microwave for ~30 seconds until soft and easily stirred.
Stir heavy whipping cream and cream cheese into soup; bring to a boil.
Turn off heat and quickly stir in cheddar cheese.
Stir in xanthan gum, if desired. Allow to thicken.
Serve hot with bacon crumbles (optional)
This soup has a thinner, more broth-like consistency because it does not have a roux or any thickening agents. If you don’t add something like xanthan gum, it won’t be the thick soup you might be used to.
