Do you prefer a creamy or a chunky keto broccoli cheese soup? Whichever your preference, I’ll show you how to make it.

I love a good broccoli cheddar soup because it’s so rich and flavorful yet so easy to make. All you need is 4 or 5 ingredients and a good blender and you’re ready to go.

This keto soup is naturally gluten-free, made from healthy ingredients and is full of good fat to keep you fuller for longer. This is true soul food.

To make a chunkier keto broccoli cheese soup, use a handheld blender as I did in this recipe.

You’ll need these ingredients:

  • organic or homemade chicken broth
  • heavy cream
  • your favorite type of cheese, I used pepper jack cheddar cheese in this recipe
  • broccoli

Salt and pepper to taste. That’s it! I served it with some cool tomato slices topped with flaky pink salt which was the perfect cool side dish to my comforting, broccoli soup.

Tips for an Advanced Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup

If you want to take this simple broccoli and cheese soup up a notch, try sauteeing freshly chopped garlic and onions in butter as your first step. Then add your chicken broth to this mixture and continue from there.

You can also add chopped rotisserie chicken into the soup after you’ve blended it for a heartier, meatier soup.

Finally, I love to add crispy bacon to my soup as a topping.

If your soup isn’t thickening, add in one teaspoon of xanthan gum just before blending.
