Can You Freeze Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup?
It’s really not recommended that you freeze Broccoli Cheese Soup. It’s best when eaten fresh or warmed up from the fridge.
Because of the cheese and other dairy in this recipe, it may cause the ingredients to separate once frozen and reheated.
Tips for Broccoli Cheese Keto Soup
This gluten free broccoli soup is so easy to make, but here’s just a few tips you may find helpful:
- Try to use freshly grated cheese, when you can. Pre-shredded cheese is coated with an anti-caking agent when packaged and it can cause the cheese to clump in the soup while melting.
- Another tip for keeping the cheese smooth and creamy is to add it a little at a time, stirring well in between on low heat.
- Use fresh broccoli for this recipe. Frozen tends to be soggy and less flavorful when used in soup.
- When reheating low carb broccoli cheese soup, be sure to do so over low heat, whisking often to re-incorporate the ingredients. Reheating it on high heat will cause your soup to be grainy.
Substitutions Used in Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup
- Spice things up a little. If you like a little heat, add red pepper flakes for a little extra kick.
- If you need a short cut, look for fresh pre-cut florets in your local produce department.
- It’s all about the cheese! If you have another favorite cheese, other than cheddar, it’s perfectly fine to substitute. You’ll want to use a cheese with good meltability. White cheddar, gouda, provolone, and pepper jack are all good choices.
- If you’re a super fan of cheese, you can add a grated hard cheese of your choice to the top of this recipe to give it just a little extra cheesiness. Parmesan and Romano work well with this soup.
- Though this Keto broccoli soup is perfect the way it is, if you want to add a little something extra, adding crumbled bacons compliments the flavors very well.
- This recipe calls for chicken bone broth. I use Kettle and Fire brand because I have found the flavor to be most like homemade stock. If you’d prefer to make your own chicken stock, you can certainly use it instead.
Is Broccoli Cheese Soup Keto?
Traditional broccoli and cheese soup is not Keto friendly, because flour is used to thicken it. This Keto soup recipe takes all those favorite flavors and with a few substitutions, transforms it into a perfect low carb version.
With healthy fat from the Mascarpone cheese and coming in with only 3 net carbs per serving, you couldn’t ask for a better Keto meal.
