Keto Broccoli Cream Soup Recipe
Delicious Keto Broccoli Cream Soup Recipe
Remember as a child your mother would tell you to eat your greens? Well, she was right! However, you won’t need to coax anyone to try this keto-friendly broccoli soup because it’s rich, delicious and super healthy!
Forget being bland and bitter, this broccoli soup contains pine nuts and coconut cream to give it a richer, creamier flavour, making it an ideal choice for lunch. The pine nuts tick the ‘healthy fats’ box and will also help you to stay fuller for longer and this delicious organic coconut cream gives what could have been a bitter soup, a sweeter kick.
Avoid any wastage by using the stalks of your broccoli as well as the florets, which have just as much flavour and nutrients in them. The stalks do take a bit longer to cook so add them into your pan before the florets. Also, make sure you don’t overcook the broccoli as it will lose it’s bright green colour!

Ingredient Spotlight: Broccoli
It might not be the sexiest of vegetables but broccoli is an essential part of a healthy diet, especially the keto diet as it’s very low in carbs (about 1.5g per 100g). The little amount of carbs it does contain come from something called ‘dietary fibre’, which don’t count towards your daily carb allowance.
It contains almost no fat and a minimal amount of sugar. (compared to fruit at least) most of those carbs come from dietary fibre.

I changed the way I eat in 2011 when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue, conditions where the thyroid is affected. I had no energy, was exhausted, desperate, and my weight had sky-rocketed.
Because of that, I decided to ditch sugars, processed foods, grains, dairy and toxic chemicals. And step-by-step, I introduced a whole-foods-based (first Paleo) and later an AIP (autoimmune protocol) friendly ketogenic approach to food which gave me my life, vitality, happiness and energy back!
Now, through my holistic wellness books and anti-ageing health platform, I want to empower people around the world do the same and regain their health, hair, life, vitality and beauty!
