Loaded Keto Cauliflower Soup [Low-Carb Instant Pot Recipe]
Our keto-approved loaded cauliflower soup is reminiscent of a loaded potato—think lots of crispy bacon slices, leek, rich sour cream, and cheddar cheese. If you’re in need of a comforting and easy-to-whip-up soup for those colder winter months, look no further.
Unlike a regular loaded baked potato, this soup is lower in carbs and replaces the starchy potato with light and flavorsome cauliflower, which makes for a healthier meal. Cauliflower has a delicate flavor but adds some much-needed fiber, which can be necessary when accompanied by the amount of dairy you’re adding in.
Don’t forget to saute the bacon slices until just crispy (but not burnt) and set them aside but leave the bacon fat, which will impart incredible flavor to the mirepoix (carrots, onions, and celery mix). Once all the ingredients are added in, make sure you blend it well with an immersion blender, or a regular food processor to incorporate all the cauliflower and vegetables together—the last thing you want is the occasional cauliflower chunk in every mouthful.
The best part of this soup is the toppings, and this isn’t the time to skimp on the cheese! Apart from adding color, sprinkling the crispy bacon, remaining cheese, and generous amounts of spring onion provides a lovely contrast in texture and crunch.
