🥘 What You'll Need
Here are the ingredients you will need to make this soup:
- Heavy Cream
Additional ingredients if making cream of soup from the condensed version:
- Milk (Use nonfat or 2% . You can use whole milk but it will very rich).
- Xanthan Gum mixed with 1 tsp olive oil
Note: xanthan gum is a low carb thickener. Dissolving it in a fat such as olive oil keeps it from clumping when added to your soup. A little goes a long way, start with 1/2 tsp up to 1 tsp.

I love this soup. I know use it all my recipes that call for for it. Thank you! BTW the link to pin it doesn't work.
Hi Kelly! Thank you, I am so glad you love it. 🙂 I make batches of it and use it all the time. So good. Is it a social share button link that is not working?
It making a Keto version, would you substitute the milk with heavy whipping cream, almond milk, or a combo of both?
You could definitely substitute. I usually use heavy whipping cream and/or half and half.
Karen Oliveira says
I used 1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
1 Tbsp parsley
I think 3 tsp of salt as recipe recommended is way to much
I made that mistake. I thought about it before I did it, but did it anyway. I ended up adding another cup and a half of heavy cream. It was still salty, but usable in the stroganoff recipe. Just thought I would warn others. Otherwise, delicious!
Thank you so much for your feedback! It's super helpful to hear! 🙂 I am going to adjust the recipe down to 2 teaspoons of kosher salt.
