Broccoli Cheese Soup

You know you’ve ordered it. The ever famous Broccoli Cheese Soup from Panera Bread. We all have. It’s one of my favorite soups to get there and when I was pregnant with Maddie it definitely helped settle the nausea. 

When it comes to “fall,” soups are on the weekly meal plan at least once a week. 

  1. Soups are super easy to make.
  2. They last at least two meals. (in our family of four)
  3. Always a hit. Meaning I usually don’t have a complainers.

How to make Broccoli Cheese Soup Low Carb?

To make this easy crock pot soup recipes low carb I omitted a few ingredients that typically add to the carb count.

  1. Onion
  2. Carrots
  3. Red Pepper

While all of those ingredients are “real ingredients” they do have carbs, so if you’re on a low carb or keto diet this soup will fit the bill.

Can you freeze Broccoli Cheese Soup?

Most soups with a cream or dairy base tend to separate or change texture and consistency when thawing. While you can freeze this broccoli cheese soup by placing it in an air tight container, will last 2-3 months in freezer. Please keep in mind that the cream may separate when thawing. So I recommend you not freeze it.

Honestly, you won’t want to freeze this soup. It is so good you’ll want to finish it in one sitting. We like to top ours with a sprinkle of shredded cheese (because you can’t go wrong with more cheese), chopped green onions and a dash of smoked paprika. The paprika adds that nice little hint of smokiness but it is totally optional. Our family will just put paprika on any and everything. 

The cauliflower in this soup makes it extra creamy! So just roll with it, trust me you’ll love it! I cannot wait to hear what you think of this one. Talk about quick easy dinner ideas? You can’t beat this one, and the flavor is on point! 

Bon Appetit friends!
