Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1/4 cup shallot * minced
  • 4 cups broccoli * chopped very small
  • 2 cups unsalted vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese * grated
  • 4 ounces smoked Gouda cheese * grated

Instructions

  • Add the olive oil to a Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and shallot and cook until fragrant and just soft, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in the chopped broccoli, vegetable stock, salt, and pepper. Raise the heat to medium-high and cook until the broccoli is just tender, about 6-7 minutes.
  • Mix in the heavy whipping cream and cook for another minute or two until the soup is heated through.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and stir in both cheeses.
  • Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Serve hot.

Notes

Tips & Techniques for the Best Keto Broccoli Cheese Soup

  • For best results, shred the cheese from a block rather than buying bags of pre-shredded cheese.
  • Use a food processor to chop the broccoli quicker.
  • To reduce the carb count even more, omit the shallot (-6 total carbs) and/or use chicken bone stock instead of vegetable stock (-6 total carbs).

How Do You Store Extra Broccoli Cheese Soup?

  • Store extra soup in air-tight containers in the refrigerator and use within 3-4 days.
  • Broccoli Cheese Soup can be kept in the freezer for up to 2-3 months for best results.
