We understand how difficult it is to change your lifestyle and adapt it to low carbs. Those who have tried the keto diet know that it is more than a diet; it is a way of life. 

We made this list to make your life easier. These keto soup recipes are a staple in my kitchen and easy to make. With soups, you can make a big batch and enjoy it the whole week for lunch.

And depending on how hungry you are, you can choose a lighter or more hearty soup loaded with cream, juicy meat, and flavorful vegetables.

The best part? None of these low carb soup recipes use starch or any wheat to thicken or potatoes!

Whether you want your soup to be simmered in a Dutch oven or quickly in an Instant Pot, you’ll discover that all of these keto soup recipes are adaptable to any cooking method.

What is more comforting than a serving of hot soup? Soup is one of my all-time favorite recipes to prepare, and that’s why I have so many low carb and gluten-free soup recipes on my blog.

I am sure that even if you don’t have time to go shopping, you will find some ingredients in your pantry that fit perfectly for one of those delicious and exciting recipes.

Can I Eat Soup On Keto?

Yes, you can eat soup on a keto diet, as long as the soup is made with low carb ingredients such as bone broth, keto vegetables, a source of protein, and healthy fats.

Some ingredients to limit include starchy vegetables like potatoes or carrots, grains like rice or barley, and high-carb thickeners like flour or cornstarch.

I recommend making keto soups at home because store-bought soups may contain hidden additives and sugar.

In conclusion, soup can be a delicious and satisfying addition to a ketogenic diet, as long as it’s made with keto-friendly ingredients and fits within your daily carb limits.

Common Ingredients in Keto Soups

Keto soups are usually made with low carb ingredients such as vegetables, healthy fats, and protein.

  • Vegetables – Keto-friendly vegetables are a must in any soup you decide to make. Onion, celery, and carrots are generally the first ingredients I add to a soup. Even though onions and carrots are higher in carbs, I use only a small amount to keep carbs to a minimum. I also add broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, kale, zucchini, and asparagus.
  • Herbs and Spices  in most of my soup recipes, I use dried herbs and spices, but when it’s summer and my garden is full of fresh herbs, and can’t resist getting some and add in my soup at the end.
  • Meat – Personally, I am a big fan of vegetable soups, but I also love creamy meaty soups.
  • Bone broth: Bone broth is a nutrient-dense broth made by simmering bones and connective tissue from animals. It is rich in collagen, amino acids, and minerals, making it a popular ingredient in keto soups.
  • Coconut milk or Heavy Cream: Both add creaminess and flavor to the soup.
  • Spices and herbs: Spices and herbs are often used in keto soups to add flavor and depth. Popular choices include garlic, ginger, cumin, turmeric, thyme, and rosemary.
  • Low-carb thickeners: To thicken soups, keto-friendly thickeners such as xanthan gum, guar gum, and psyllium husk can be used instead of flour or cornstarch, which are high in carbs.

Types of Keto Soup Recipes

  1. Creamy soups: These soups made with low-carb vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, or zucchini. Heavy cream, coconut milk, or cream cheese are used to add richness and flavor.
  2. Broth-based soups: Soups made with bone broth or other types of broth are a great option, as they are low in carbs and high in protein. Add healthy fats like avocado oil or butter to make keto soups filling and satisfying.
  3. Meat-based soups: Soups made with meat, such as chicken or beef, are a good source of protein and healthy fats.
  4. Seafood soups: Soups made with seafood, such as shrimp or crab, are loaded with protein and healthy fats and can be combined with low-carb vegetables and herbs to make a delicious soup.
  5. Vegetable soups: I love making vegetable soup because it’s a delicious way to add more healthy vegetables to my meal plan.

How To Serve Keto Soups?

To make a keto soup even more filling and nutritious, you can pair it with a variety of side dishes or toppings. Here are my favorite ways to enjoy soups on a keto diet:

  • Keto Bread: I love making keto croutons out of my coconut flour bread and use them as a topping for my soups.
  • Crackers: Crackers are a great option to add a little crunch to the soup so that you can make cheddar crackers or seed crackers.
  • Avocado: a great way to add healthy fats and creaminess.
  • Cheese: Top the soup with grated cheddar, mozzarella, or Parmesan.
  • Salad: Choose a healthy salad as a side dish for soup.
  • Nuts and Seeds: Try adding almonds, walnuts, or pumpkin seeds to your soup.

Common Mistakes to Avoid When Making Keto Soups

  • Using high-carb vegetables. Some vegetables are higher in carbs than others, and it’s best to choose low-carb vegetables such as cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, and spinach.
  • Using high-carb thickeners. Often soups are made with thickeners such as flour or cornstarch that are high in carbs and should be avoided on a keto diet. Instead, use low-carb thickeners like xanthan gum, guar gum, or psyllium husk powder.
  • Not using enough healthy fats. Make sure to add healthy fats as avocado oil, coconut oil, ghee, or olive oil, to help you feel satisfied and energized.
  • Not using enough protein. Protein is important for building and maintaining muscle and keeping you feeling full and satisfied. Be sure to include enough protein in your soup by using ingredients like meat, poultry, seafood, or tofu.
  • Using pre-made soups. Many pre-made soups contain added sugars or high-carb ingredients, so it’s best to make your soup from scratch at home. This way, you can control the ingredients and ensure that your soup is keto-friendly.
  • Adding too many high-carb toppings. Avoid high-carb toppings like croutons, crackers, or bread, and instead opt for low-carb options like keto crackers, grated cheese, sliced avocado, sour cream, or roasted nuts.
