What Is A Keto Cauliflower Soup?
A low-carb cauliflower soup is made of roasted cauliflower and doesn’t contain any starchy vegetables like potatoes or sweet potatoes.
While a classic cauliflower soup might contain up to 15 grams of net carbs per serving, this keto cauliflower soup only has 5.9 grams.

How To Make Keto Cauliflower Soup
This soup only requires a handful of basic ingredients.
The ingredients you need to make a flavorsome keto cauliflower soup are:
- Cauliflower – make sure you cut the cauliflower into small florets and measure precisely in grams/oz or cups. If you are missing too much cauliflower, the soup will have a less creamy texture. In case you are wondering, yes, cauliflower is keto-friendly, but it’s one of the rare vegetables that have lower net carbs once cooked!
- Vegetable stock – I recommend using low-sodium stock to prevent the soup from becoming too salty.
- Olive oil
- Softened cream cheese – or coconut cream with 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum.
Secrets Of A Creamy Cauliflower Soup
The secret to making a creamy cauliflower soup without adding starchy vegetables like potatoes is the cream cheese.
I love to use a French soft cream cheese called Kiri. However, you can use any cream cheese brand you love.
Also, make sure your cream cheese is soft, at room temperature, or it won’t combine as well in the soup.
Make It Vegan
Cream cheese is a dairy product; therefore, this recipe is not vegan.
If you are on a keto and dairy-free diet, I recommend using 2/3 cup of canned full-fat coconut cream instead of the cream cheese.
This will bring a very similar creamy texture to your soup. Plus, if you are after a creamier soup, sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum onto the soup!
Serving Cauliflower Soup
The best way to serve this creamy cauliflower soup is to add a drizzle of heavy cream and a handful of grated cheddar.
Other delicious toppings or sides are:
- Bacon pieces
- Toasted sliced almonds
- Fresh parsley or thyme
- Almond crackers – try some crackers on the side of your soup. Almonds and cauliflower are a perfect match.
- Keto bread rolls – my keto bread rolls are delicious dunked into this soup!
