CREAM CHEESE This might sound like a cream of cauliflower recipe, but the “cream of” is actually cream cheese. This “no cream” recipe is lower in fat and calories but still delivers a smooth, cream-like consistency. For a vegan option, use a dairy free cream cheese instead.

VEGETABLES Cauliflower florets are cooked in a soup with sautéed onions, garlic, celery, and a bay leaf. Feel free to add in broccoli, potato, or other favorites as desired, but be aware that certain veggies are not considered to be low carb.

BROTH For a truly vegan soup switch out the chicken broth for vegetable broth.

ADD-INS Continue to keep it low carb. Make a keto soup by adding roast chicken, or roasted broccoli florets, sliced mushrooms, sliced black olives, even shredded cheese or sliced green onions as a garnish.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • If broccoli is added to the soup, toss them in olive oil and roast them in the oven for about 10 minutes to add an additional depth of flavor to this cauliflower soup.
  • No immersion blender? No problem! Remove the amount of soup you want blended and use a blender, electric mixer, or a personal blender. Always face the caps from blenders away from your face to avoid the release of steam.


Cauliflower soup keeps remarkably well in the refrigerator as long as it’s covered. Up to 5 days, simply reheat on the stove and add salt & pepper or other seasonings or cheese as desired. Cauliflower soup can also be frozen by scooping into quart or gallon-sized bags, writing the date on the outside. It will keep it’s flavor for about 3 months in the freezer.

  • Remove bay leaf and discard. Mix in cream cheese and using a hand blender pulse in the soup a few times to thicken the mixture. I like to pulse but leave a few chunks for texture.
