Keto Copycat Panera Broccoli Cheddar Soup 6g Net Carbs

Soups are an essential winter meal in my house. Nothing’s better than a hot bowl of soup to warm up your soul. Though there are many but when it comes to picking our most favorite soup, this keto version of broccoli cheddar soup is number 1. My kids love it because of it’s creamy texture and cheesy flavor, and I love the fact that it’s loaded with a ton of nutritious veggies.This creamy velvety soup is so much healthier than Panera’s broccoli cheddar soup and takes just 30 minutes to make for a fraction of the carbs.

This broccoli cheddar soup is sort of a copycat recipe from Panera Bread Though I haven’t had that soup from there in years, I can promise you this soup will surely please the pickiest critic. My keto version of broccoli cheddar soup is packed with broccoli, garlic, and cheese. Omitting the roux cuts the carbs way back and using bone broth adds ton of nutrition. It truly is a winner!

Notes

To prevent a grainy soup, add the cheese one handful at a time, mixing well between handfuls, and have the heat turned off when you’re adding the cheese. I prefer that you shred your own cheese. Not only is it cheaper, it melts SO much better than the pre-shredded kind and there are no added starches to prevent caking.

    Yum! Made this for dinner last night and it was delicious! The only change I made was to add a cup of hot broth to the xantham gum and blend it and then add that thickened broth back to the pot because I know xantham gum can be tricky and I didn’t want to waste an entire pot of soup if it gummed up too quickly. My husband didn’t like the texture at first so I added in an extra cup of broth and it was perfect! Oh, he also added cubed ham to his bowl because he needs the extra protein but agreed that it was delicious either way!
