Low-Carb Cream of Broccoli Soup
Ingredients4 h 31 m servings 258 cals
- Combine chicken broth, cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, butter, and onion flakes in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir until smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Add heavy cream and chicken; bring to a gentle simmer.
- Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain excess moisture.
- Pour chicken broth mixture into a slow cooker; add broccoli.
- Cook on Low until flavors combine, about 4 hours.
- Cook's Notes:
- Frozen broccoli can be used but I find it too strong.
- This soup can be eaten right away but it's much better if it's cooked in the slow cooker for several hours to allow the flavors to blend.

My son was on the Ketogenic diet for a while for health reasons and since I do the cooking ;) we all were. We lost a TON of weight and now we are doing a modified Atkins diet, this is an AMAZIN...
Made this as part of a ketogenic diet, and loved it! Puréed half of the broccoli to infuse flavor and give it more bulk.
This was absolutely amazing! I would DEFINITELY make it again. I did puree the broccoli (texture preference for me) and I added some cayenne pepper and I used sharp velveeta and sharp shredded ...
Delicious!!! I started eating keto last month and am always looking for new recipes to try. I was a little hesitant about the canned chicken, but it really works well and doesn't end up tasting ...
This is a delicious low-carb soup. Next time, I might use my immersion blender to make it drinkable. Or use it for half the broccoli. Definitely would make it again.
Thank you so much for such an wonderful recipe! I made it just the way the recipe said, and it turned out AMAZING!
One of my favorite low carb recipes. I normally add a little velveeta to make it creamier but with or without that it is very good. A satisfying meal!!
Great flavor and easy to make! The serving amount is a little misleading, though. I made 8 servings according to the recipe which yielded 4 bowls of soup.
