Stay in ketosis with some of the best keto soup recipes on the internet from the gifted recipe creators here at Ketogenic.com.

16 Great Keto Soup Recipes 

No matter what your favorite soup is, we’ve got a recipe for a healthy, low-carb version.

1.  Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is an old favorite. Maybe you can still hear your grandmother’s voice offering you homemade chicken noodle soup when you feel sick. The healthy broth, vegetables, and spices in traditional chicken soups were often recommended when people were under the weather. You can make this healthy 30-minute keto chicken noodle soup with chicken broth or chicken bone broth, your choice of spices, and palmini noodles to replace the usual carb-heavy grain noodles. Add greens like kale to boost the nutritional value.

2. Vegetarian Creamy Roasted Garlic and Kale Soup

Another delicious recipe from Rhonda Plata, this creamy roasted garlic and kale soup is a vegetarian lunchtime favorite. While it does take 55 minutes to conjure up, it’s well worth the wait and packed with flavor, from the richness of garlic to the savory taste of cauliflower, onion, olive oil, and Italian seasoning. Top your soup with sour cream and chives; if you’re not a vegetarian, there’s always bacon! 

3. Crispy Prosciutto and Leek Soup

Prosciutto is uniquely delicious and feels fancy. Batch cook this 35-minute crispy prosciutto and leek soup recipe and store for up to ten days. Full-fat coconut milk, chicken broth, avocado oil, leeks, parsley, and a couple of other ingredients join to create a delectable gourmet soup that’s full of healthy fats and makes the perfect keto choice to fuel your busy day and keep you feeling full for hours.

4. Witches Brew (Sausage, Bacon, and Kale Soup)

“Witches brew” sounds exciting and mysterious, no matter if it’s Halloween or any other time of year. Witches surely need energy for casting spells, and this creative 30-minute keto witches brew soup recipe is energizing, nutritious, and tasty. This sausage, kale, and bacon soup recipe is reminiscent of the Zuppa Toscana from Olive Garden, minus the grains and carbs, of course.

5.  Broccoli Cheddar Soup

There’s something incredibly appealing about the marriage of broccoli and cheddar in a warm creamy soup. Broccoli cheddar soup is a classic, but many versions aren’t keto-friendly.

6. Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash soup is creamy, hearty, and filling. Keep it low-carb with this keto butternut squash soup recipe made with squash, chicken bone broth, unsweetened coconut milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, thyme, and garlic.

7. Egg Drop Soup

Egg drop soup is a popular staple of Chinese cuisine. Mixing the flavors of egg and chicken broth offers a mouthwatering unique flavor experience. While most traditional egg drop soups use corn starch as a thickener, this quick keto egg drop soup recipe calls for xantham gum – a high-fiber keto alternative to flour or cornstarch. Sprinkle scallions on your soup before eating and enjoy.

8. Tomato Soup

Tomato soup is another popular soup across many cuisines, from French and Italian to American. Contrary to popular belief, tomato is actually a sweet keto-approved fruit rather than a vegetable. You’ll be happy to discover this keto tomato soup recipe is sugar-free and only requires 5 minutes of your time and 3 simple ingredients: tomato paste,  water, and salt. Of course, you’ll probably want to add herbs and fresh basil. Serve your tomato soup with a classic keto grilled cheese sandwich on the side.

9. Cream of Mushroom Soup

You either love mushrooms or you don’t. Mushroom lovers will surely get excited about this low-carb cream of mushroom soup recipe made with mushrooms, unsweetened almond milk, olive oil, onion, heavy cream, bone broth, and salt and pepper to taste.
