What’s A Keto Soup?

A keto soup is like any classic soup but it’s made with lower-carb vegetables such as cauliflower or pumpkin.

Keto soups also tend to be higher in fat than regular recipes to keep your macros high.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

I love this simple leek cauliflower soup because it’s light and doesn’t use any starchy vegetables.

This soup is:

  • Low-Carb
  • Keto
  • Vegetarian
  • Egg-Free
  • Gluten-Free
  • Nut-Free

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!

Key Ingredients

  • 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.

Tip: Roast The Veggies

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.

Storage Instructions

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.

Instructions

  • 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.
Net carbs: 6.7 g per serving. Recipe serves 12 bowls (3/4 cup).
