Loaded Keto Cauliflower Soup

Loaded Cauliflower Keto Soup

This low-carb cauliflower soup tastes just like traditional loaded baked potato soup, without the extra carbs. Cauliflower florets are blended with beef bone broth and heavy cream to create a rich, creamy soup that resembles a bisque. Top with chives, bacon bits, and sharp cheddar cheese to complete the dish.

Ingredients

  • 8 strips bacon
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. onion salt
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh chives
  • 4 cups Kettle & Fire beef bone broth
  • 2 heads cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Green onions for garnish
  • Shredded cheddar cheese for garnish
  • Sour cream for garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat a large cast iron pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Place the bacon in the pan, cooking until crispy, or roughly two minutes per side. Set aside.

  2. While the bacon is cooking, heat a large soup pot or Dutch oven medium heat. Drizzle olive oil in the pot, then add the chopped onion. Add the garlic, onion salt, red chili flakes, and chives to the large pot with the onion.

  3. When the onion is translucent, but not caramelized, add the beef bone broth. Add the cauliflower florets, and cover. Cook for 15 minutes, or until fork-tender.

  4. While the cauliflower is simmering, prepare your garnishes. Chop the bacon and green onion.

  5. Remove the cauliflower from heat, carefully pouring into a high-powered blender or food processor. Blend in batches, as only half the mixture will fit into your food processor at one time. Hold tightly to the lid, as the heat will cause excessive pressure while blending.

  6. Once fully blended, return the cauliflower mixture to the soup pot, turning the burner back to medium heat. Stir in the heavy cream and bacon bits, reserving some bacon to be used as a garnish. Continue to cook for 5 minutes.

  7. Pour soup into serving bowls. Top with bacon, green onions, cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Serve.
