I always wait until my soup is finished cooking to season with salt because these store bought broths can be quite salty.
What is Keto?
Another liquid I frequently add to soups is heavy cream! Vegetables are a must in any soup I make. I usually start off a soup with onion, celery, and carrots. I try to keep the onion to a minimum because they do have a lot of carbs in large quantities. Some other vegetables that are perfect in low carb soups are broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, any kind of squash, pumpkin puree, diced tomatoes, kale, radishes, and spinach. To replace rice in a soup I use riced cauliflower, and to replace pasta or potatoes, I just use additional vegetables.
Most of the time I use dried herbs and spices in my soup recipes. These usually include cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, dried thyme, dried basil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Of course there is always shredded chicken breast, but I find that those dry out. I love to add chopped boneless skinless chicken thighs into my low carb soups. Ground beef and stew meat also make good additions. I always cook the meat first before adding the broth. My favorite soup thickener is Xanthan gum. It is so easy to use and can be found in most grocery stores. I have found it in Walmart on the baking isle.

Since we usually only use less than a teaspoon at a time, the package lasts for a while. I have also used cream cheese to thicken soups and heavy cream…though these are not as effective as xanthan gum. To thicken vegetable soups like a creamy cauliflower soup or broccoli soup, you can puree some of it with an immersion blender. This will use the vegetables as a thickener. This Broccoli Cheese Soup is ready in under 30 minutes!
I use cheese as the thickener instead of flour. I also give tips to keep the cheese from not melting and sinking to the bottom of the pot. Use leftover steak if you have it, or cook up some fresh sirloin. You will not regret it! I made the dairy free version which was so rich and creamy using coconut milk. In fact, soup is a perfect addition to your keto diet and low carb lifestyle.

Pingback: keto chicken soup — Homesick Recipes. Stephanie, this soup is delicious! I made it as directed, adding the frozen cauliflower after the chicken had been added a few minutes. In my opinion, this is a perfect recipe. Also could I cook this in the slow cooker? Hi Kayla! You do not need to cook the cauliflower rice before you add it to the soup. It cooks with the chicken. The veggies would probably get really mushy.
It would take less than 30 minutes to throw together if all the ingredients are ready to go. Using purchased fresh or frozen cauliflower rice is a huge time saver, too! Let us know if you try it! The flavor was excellent, but the soup was too brothy to be filling by itself. Hi Jalina!
