How To Make Keto Leek And Cauliflower Soup
I love to use vegetable stock as a base for this soup, but chicken stock is a great option as well. Leek and cauliflower are both very low-carb vegetables.
They contain very few calories as well, and they are both amazing sources of fibers, vitamins A and C. Check out my keto vegetable list for a review of all common vegetables!
- Leek: Leek is a keto-friendly ingredient that brings nutrients, color, and a delicious taste to soups.
- Onion: While onions have more carbs than some other vegetables, adding just a few to this recipe brings a great taste. If you want to reduce the carbs more, skip the onion.
- Cauliflower: Cauliflower is one of the lowest-carb vegetables and brings a great texture to the recipe.
- Vegetable Stock: or chicken stock for a slightly meaty flavor.
- Sour Cream: Sour cream brings some tanginess to the soup and is a keto-friendly cream option.
- Heavy Cream: Heavy cream is useful to increase the fat and reach your macros.
My secret for a tasty soup with low-carb vegetables is to roast them first with shallots, garlic, olive oil, and spices.
It’s a straightforward step that adds lots of flavor to any low-carb soup.
Serving The Soup
The texture is not very thick or creamy. It’s a light soup with lots of spices and flavor, perfect for a light family dinner.
I drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on my bowl with some grated mozzarella.
This soup can be stored for up to 3 days in the fridge or frozen for later in airtight containers.
Always wait for the soup to reach room temperature before packing it in containers.

To roast vegetables
- 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Leek remove the very green top part, trim feet, roughly chop
- 1 small Onion peeled, roughly chopped
- 1 large Cauliflower Head chopped into small florets (about 8 cups)
- 5 cups Vegetable Stock
- 1 cup Sour Cream
- 1 cup Heavy Cream or coconut cream if vegan
- 2 Garlic Clove peeled and smashed
- ½ teaspoon Thyme
- ½ tsp Salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Spread the chopped vegetables: leek, cauliflower, and onion, onto a baking tray in a single layer.
- Drizzle the olive oil onto the vegetables and toss everything together until the vegetables are well coated.
- Roast vegetables for 20-30 minutes, tossing vegetables every 5-10 minutes. The vegetables must be tender enough to be blended after the roasted process.
- Meanwhile, pour the vegetable stock with thyme and salt into a large pot (must fit all your vegetables!) and bring to a simmer.
- Once vegetables have roasted through, place them into the pot with stock.
- Add in heavy cream and sour cream.
- Blend with an immersion blender until it forms a creamy smooth soup. Adjust the quantity of stock to reach the desired consistency. The more stock you add, the more liquid the soup will be.
- Serve with 2-4 tablespoons of grated cheddar per bowl or a simple drizzle of olive oil and fresh herbs.
- Store up to 3 days in the fridge or freeze for later in airtight containers. Always wait for the soup to reach room temperature before packing it in containers.
