How to Serve Broccoli Cheddar Soup
When I make this soup for our family dinner, I eat the soup and sometimes a small salad it fills me. I then also make rolls like these garlic cheddar rolls for the rest of my family. They enjoy their carbs and I enjoy my low carb meal. It is a total win win.
Sometimes if I am wanting to change up the flavor of the soup a little bit I cook a few pieces of bacon for us to sprinkle on top of the broccoli cheddar soup after I put it in the bowls to serve.
You can also make somme bread bowls and serve this soup in a bread bowl to make things a little bit more fancy.
Are carrots low carb?
Carrots are not a low carb veggie specifically as there are 6 grams of carbs in a medium carrot and 3 grams of sugar, but since carrots also provide 1.5 grams of fiber you are only getting 4.5 net carbs per medium carrot. For me I am OK with having 4.5 net carbs in the WHOLE pot of this broccoli cheddar soup. If that is not ok with you while you are sticking to a Keto and Low Carb diet, then just omit the carrot.
Homemade or Store bough Chicken Broth?
I like to have homemade chicken broth on hand in the freezer as much as I can. However if I am running short on time to make some or I do not have any on hand then I will use store bought chicken broth. Either one will work with this cheddar broccoli soup.
