As the weather gets colder (we had our first minor frost recently) I like to make up a big pot of soup each week.

This keto recipe is a crowd pleaser which means the whole family will enjoy it even if they don't follow a keto diet. Unlike creamy high-carb favourites like potato soup or lentil soup, this meal is ideal for those who keep their carb intake low.

You can serve it as an appetiser, and two servings will be enough as a main dish. It’s a delicious and easy dinner and it’s a quick, tasty and warming lunch to heat up for myself or to send in thermoses for my family.

The name of this soup pretty much tells you everything you need to know; it’s thick and creamy with a lovely fresh vegetable flavour. If you love soups, check out our keto noodle soup - it is just as comforting and so easy to whip up. Enjoy!
