Perfect for any weather, this soup is a favorite of mine because it is easy to make and only requires 6 ingredients. I have seen some that only require 4 ingredients. However they aren't always the best tasting. I like to cup the carbs and not the flavor! 

KETO KEY: Zucchini is a major staple in my keto lifestyle. The reason being there is literally just about 3 grams of net carbs per medium - sized zucchini. It also has a sweet, mild taste and it is so versatile. It can be eaten raw . You can roast it, sautéed it, bake it, eat it raw, and even grill it.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 onion (chopped)

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 3 medium zucchini, skin on (cut in large chunks)

  • 32 oz reduced sodium Swanson chicken or vegetable broth

  • ½ block of softened cream cheese

  • 2 tbsp sour cream

  • Himalayan pink sea salt and white pepper to taste

  • fresh grated parmesan cheese (used for topping)

Instructions

  1. Put the chicken broth, onion, garlic and zucchini in a large pot over medium heat and bring to a boil.

  2. Lower heat, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and purée in a blender, add the sour cream and softened cream cheese and then purée again until smooth.

  4. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust to taste. Serve hot.
