Easy Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup – Panera Bread Copycat Recipe

As the weather turns colder and Fall wind starts to blow, it’s time to start thinking about finding that perfect weight loss recipe to enjoy during the colder months. While your Cheetos and Monster energy drinks still contain the same amount of sugar, you know there is tons of sodium in them. This recipe gives you the same crave-worthy crunchy texture without the added sugar.

This recipe is originating from The CopyKat at www.copykat.com. I have updated it to include a step by step photo guide, and I have also added a low carb option. When I was in college I had a roommate who always made this soup and I absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, the ingredients were pretty high carb. Over the years I have made many different variations of this soup and it is my absolute favorite! I hope you enjoy this soup as much as I do!

A couple tips for making this easy keto broccoli cheddar soup:

  • This recipe makes enough soup for about three bowls, so if you’re feeding a large family, double or even triple the recipe for a bigger batch.
  • Xantham gum is a great way to thicken low carb soups and sauces. You can skip it, but a very small amount makes the broth super-rich and creamy, and your soup will have a thicker texture.
