Low Carb Creamy Broccoli Soup with Cheese Crisps

7 ratings

On a cold day, warm up with this hot and creamy broccoli soup! This recipe uses fresh broccoli, but you can also use frozen broccoli florets if you have them on hand. The star of this dish is the cheese crisp. It’s so simple and easy - simply shred your favorite cheddar cheese and bake it! Grate a block of cheese instead of pre-shredded cheese to avoid the potato starch and cellulose that’s in most packaged shredded cheese. This soup is great the next day too, so consider making a double batch!

    Good flavor but it's not creamy, more runny. Maybe nwxt time I'll just add some cheese in there, or maybe 1/2 cup cream to thicken it up.

      This is good, but i doubled the recipe and it came out quite thin. I will try again without doubling the recipe. The carb count also seems incorrect. I figured for a double recipe, the entire pot of soup was 64 carbs so a single recipe would be 32 for the entire thing. The cheese crisps are wonderful with it.

          I just made this soup for lunch, mainly because it says 2 servings. But it actually made 8 cups of soup. Something isn’t calculated right🤷🏻‍♀️

            The sugar content comes from where?

            I blended cheese into soup rather than fire up the oven and dirty another pan. Added a tablespoon or so of curry and a little cumin to bump things up a bit.

              Very good though I'm not sure of the exact serving size.

                Could always add the cheese to the soup instead of making cheese crisps. Let the cheese melt into the other ingredients then blitz with a hand blender until smooth tastes just as nice

                    Yes, keto is 20g carbs a day and low carb is less than 50 g carbs a day so the soup still low carb.

                    I feel like 10 net carbs is still a lot for a serving of soup :(

                  I added pasilla chile and spinach to my soup. It came out delicious! This is the first recipe I have tried and I can’t wait to try more.
