This low carb broccoli soup recipe requires only a few ingredients and a few simple steps to make the perfect, creamy, clean soup.

This soup is delicious on its own, but it also goes well with any desired toppings.

Ingredients

  • 500g broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tbsp shallots, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 60g heavy whipping cream
  • 2 chicken stock cubes
  • 3 cups water
  • salt (optional) and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a soup pot, warm the ghee over medium heat.
  2. Saute the shallots, garlic, and parsley until translucent.
  3. Add the water, broccoli and the chicken stock and stir to combine. Cover the pot and simmer until the broccoli is tender.
  4. Remove from the heat. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
  5. Return the pan to the heat. Pour in the heavy cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and leave it uncovered until it has shrunk to about an inch.
  6. Serve warm with toasted pumpkin seeds and a dollop of fresh cream on top.

Tips & alternatives

For a vegan, vegetarian and dairy-free option;
