FREE PRINTABLE: LOW CARB & KETO FOOD LIST
This post may contain affiliate links, which help keep this content free. (Full disclosure)
It’s no secret that creamy soups are my favorite kind. Apparently you guys can relate, because my 5-ingredient broccoli cheese soup is one of the most popular recipes on the blog. Today I’ve got another creamy low carb soup recipe to add to your list: gluten free keto cream of mushroom soup! It comes together super fast — just saute, simmer, and blend.
The cool thing about gluten free cream of mushroom soup is that it’s both an amazing dish in itself and a killer recipe ingredient. Sure, it works as a starter to your meal on its own, but it’s also a common staple in other foods, like casseroles.
This is probably why the canned kind is so popular, but that pales in comparison in so many ways. Not only is the flavor more bland, the ingredients are often questionable at best. Who needs all that, when you can make your own low carb cream of mushroom soup with just seven common ingredients and 30 minutes?

Is Cream Of Mushroom Soup Gluten Free?
Store bought cream of mushroom soup is not usually gluten-free, as it’s thickened with wheat flour, not to mention filled with hidden carbs and preservatives.
This cream of mushroom soup without flour doesn’t need any flour or xanthan gum to thicken it, it’s thick enough on its own, thanks to the cream and pureed mushrooms.
Is Cream Of Mushroom Soup Keto?
No, traditional cream of mushroom soup is not keto. Most versions are made with flour, cornstarch, and other non-keto ingredients that add carbs to the soup. Carbs in cream of mushroom soup canned varieties typically clock in at 8 grams per cup, which isn’t outrageous, but because of those starches, it can still spike blood sugar and kick you out of ketosis.
Instead, make this is delicious option for the keto diet, made with no starches or artificial ingredients. The only carbs in this soup come from the mushrooms and onions. If you want to reduce the carb count further, you can omit the onion. If you reduce the amount of mushrooms, your soup will be thinner and less creamy, so if you feel the need to do that, I recommend adding a thickener (check my list of cornstarch substitutes for options).
