No time? No problem. This soup proves that keto food can be just as quick and easy as it is deeply satisfying. A silky, creamy soup topped with the salty crunch of fried pancetta, cauliflower, and nuts. Who knew fast food could be so luxurious?


  • 1 liter of chicken broth or vegetable stock
  • 450 g cauliflower
  • 200 g cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 110 g butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 200 g pancetta or bacon, diced
  • 1 tbsp butter, for frying
  • 1 tsp paprika powder or smoked chili powder
  • 75 g pecans


  1. Trim the cauliflower and cut into smaller florets. The smaller you cut them, the quicker the soup will be ready.
  2. Save a handful of fresh cauliflower and chop into tiny 1/4 inch bits.
  3. Sauté the finely chopped cauliflower (from step 2) and pancetta or bacon in butter until crispy. Add nuts and paprika powder towards the end. Set aside the mixture for serving.
  4. Meanwhile, boil the cauliflower florets in the stock until soft. Add cream cheese, mustard, and butter.
  5. Mix the soup, using an immersion blender, to desired consistency. The longer you blend, the creamier the soup. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve the soup in bowls, and top with the fried pancetta mixture.



Like variety? Then swap out the pecans for your favorite blend of nuts and seeds. And if you are running low on stock, no worries. Just replace it with lightly salted water.

  1. I have just made this soup again, but this time I did omit the cream cheese and added leeks instead. Still so delicious, I could just eat and eat. Forgot to mention, I did make some low carb garlic croutons. This soup has got 5 stars rating from me.
