Fall is coming, so it’s time to warm our souls with a delicious keto soup. I am always excited for fall recipes because I love cold weather and delicious pumpkin recipes.

I am going to fill My Keto Plate site with tons of my favorite soul-warming recipes, keto-fied.

Let’s start with one of my most favorite of them all, super simple recipes that need only a few low carb ingredients.

How to make keto broccoli cheddar soup?

The soup is creamy, tasty and filling.

What I want to be clear about is that this soup has a thinner consistency because I didn’t use any thickener agent.

The taste is fantastic but if you want a thick soup to use something like xanthan gum, psyllium husk powder, guar gum or coconut flour to improve the texture.

Being on keto, I learned that I have to eat foods that allow me to feel better, to have more energy instead of fueling my body with carbs that leave me feeling tired. Most of the recipes are great because the high-fat content contributes a lot to the taste.

Imagine that this soup has heavy whipping cream, cheddar cheese and you’ll serve it with crispy bacon bits and more cheese on top.

Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup is one of those recipes that I can’t stop making because everyone in my family absolutely loves it.

The secret is to use high-quality ingredients. Shred your cheddar cheese and don’t use the cheapest brand you can find. It lacks flavor.

I’m a firm believer that while eating high fat low carb is good for you it will never taste the same as the high carb versions.

The serving size of the soup that in my opinion is more than enough if it seems little it’s one cup that comes with 33 grams of fat.

Here’s how to make it.
