An easy and healthy recipe for a creamy keto cauliflower soup, wonderfully flavored with garlic, nutmeg, and Parmesan.
I found another great way to enjoy one of the most versatile keto vegetables, cauliflower! A wonderfully creamy cauliflower soup, flavored with garlic, nutmeg, and Parmesan.
I was never a big fan of soups until I met my husband. He loves soups, and he’s the one who got me hooked on them. He used to make this amazing onion soup in the winter that I really loved and was a complete meal. In the summer, he made gazpacho and tzatziki.
How to make creamy keto cauliflower soup
Scroll down to the recipe card for the details. It’s a very easy recipe to make. Saute onions, garlic, and cauliflower in butter. Add chicken broth, and simmer until the cauliflower is tender. This only takes 15 minutes or so. Then puree the soup, and add cream, spices, and Parmesan.
How to serve creamy keto cauliflower soup
I often have a bowl of this soup for my lunch, especially in the winter. A bowl of this creamy keto cauliflower soup makes a great lunch. I sometimes have it with buttered 90 second bread on the side, and sometimes I enjoy it on its own. (Another soup that I really enjoy for lunch is this healthy and easy butternut squash soup.)
You can also serve this cauliflower soup as a dinner appetizer, in which case serve a cup per person instead of a bowl.
Is this a healthy recipe?
What about leftovers?
You can keep leftovers of this keto cauliflower soup in the fridge, in a sealed container, for 3-4 days. Reheat them gently in the microwave, covered, on 50% power.
Creamy Keto Cauliflower Soup
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 large head cauliflower (2 lbs. with refuse, 1.5 lbs. without)
- 1 quart chicken broth (I use the Pacific Natural brand)
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
- In a large stockpot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes, until onions are soft but not browned.
- Add the garlic and the cauliflower. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, 15 minutes, until cauliflower is very tender.
- Purée the soup in batches in your food processor until very smooth (I pureed mine in 5 batches). Return to the pot. Stir in the pepper, nutmeg and cream. Cook over medium-low heat until heated through.
- Turn the heat off, add the Parmesan and stir until smooth. Serve immediately.
