Keto Cream Of Mushroom Soup

There are a lot of recipes out there for mushroom soup, but most are thickened with flour, a no-go on keto. Our creamy keto-friendly mushroom soup uses heavy cream to give its velvet-smooth texture.

Plus features two types of mushrooms; baby Belles, and white button mushrooms so that the flavor of mushroom really stands out.

There is no question that mushrooms have been prized by chefs and home cooks for their meaty texture and savory flavor. Without a doubt the umami flavor that is mushrooms provide is unmatched!

To further enhance its natural umami flavor, I sauteed them with a little gluten-free soy sauce that took the keto cream of mushroom soup to new culinary heights. 

The soup is also seasoned with onions, garlic, shallots, thyme, dill, and spices like freshly ground black pepper and smoky paprika. All of which beautifully complement the soup. 

Once the soup is ready to serve it’s topped off with some crispy bacon pieces.

Do Mushrooms Belong On A Keto diet?

Let’s talk about keto diets and the role of mushrooms. Mushrooms are part of the fungus family, and are quite low in carbs, and contain a good amount of fiber as well as vital micronutrients.

These “meaty” vegetables are rich in vitamins like Vitamin D and Vitamin B6 and are a great source of potassium.  So yes, you can consume mushrooms on keto.

There are some great health benefits of eating mushrooms while on a low-carb diet, for example, mushrooms can assist with blood sugar control, as they contain polysaccharides that can help in moderating your blood sugar levels.

Plus they are low on the glycemic index and have a minimal impact on insulin.

Mushroom consumption has the potential to benefit your gut biome and give you a good supply of antioxidants that fight against free radicals.

How To Make Keto Cream Of Mushroom Soup

Start by cooking your bacon until crispy, then crumble and set it aside. Then in a large skillet pan, sauté baby Bella mushrooms along with white button mushrooms, chopped onions, sliced shallot in the butter and olive oil until they are tender and start to caramelize.

Divide the saute mushroom mixture in half, leaving one half in the skillet pan to fully caramelize. These will be stirred in at the end once the soup has been blended.

This way the soup will have an overall creamy texture but with slices of mushrooms in each spoonful. 

The other half of the mushroom mixture needs to go into a 5-quart pan, where you will add the chicken broth, soy sauce, pepper, dill, thyme, chicken bouillon powder, salt, and smokey paprika and allow the soup to simmer before adding the heavy cream and blending.

 You can use an immersion blender or kitchen blender, to puree the hot soup in batches. Be sure to follow the manufacture’s instructions when pureeing hot liquids.

Once the entire soup has been blended, you’ll add it back to the quart pan and add the remaining mushrooms that have been fully caramelized. Taste for seasoning and serve hot.

I then recommend garnishing the top of the cream of mushroom soup with cooked bacon and parsley.

For a vegetarian keto mushroom soup, omit the chicken stock, chicken bullion powder, and bacon topping.

How To Safely Puree Hot Soup in Blender

It's important to allow the soup to cool for a few minutes before blending, this can take anywhere before 5-10 minutes. Be sure to do it in batches and not overfill the blender. Before adding the soup to the blender be sure to remove the center cap from the lid of your blender. Before blending, place a folded kitchen towel over the top of the blender. Hold the towel in place with your hand. This is key so that you do not risk getting burned. The towel will allow the steam to escape safely. Be sure to only fill the blender halfway. And to blend the soup in batches. Once the soup is fully blended return to the pan to heat through before serving.

This mushroom soup can be easily halved.

To make this a vegetarian soup, use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock and leave out the chicken bouillon powder and leave out the bacon garnish.
