Most cream-based soups start with a “roux” of butter and flour, but unfortunately, keto-friendly flours make poor substitutes in a Bechamel. Instead, this keto bechamel is made with eggs and is great for creating thicker cream-based soups.

This keto bechamel is used in my Cheddar Chicken Bacon Ranch soup. If you love creamy, flavorful soups please try it out and let me know what you think in the comments.

Steps

1
Done

In a small bowl, use a whisk to scramble your egg yolks together until smooth.

2
Done

In a medium non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat, then add the chicken broth, cream cheese, and heavy cream over medium heat until melted and combined, then reduce to low and simmer.

3
Done

Using a spoon, slowly add a spoonful at a time into the egg yolks, mixing the whole time, until the eggs are tempered (meaning they are up to temperature with the hot liquid and won’t cook.)

4
Done

Slowly add the egg mixture into the cream mixture while whisking, and cook for a few minutes on low heat until thickened. Remove the pan from heat and taste. You can now season with salt and pepper to your liking.

What I don’t understand is why with all the creativity required to come up with something keto and tasting you couldn’t find an original name for the recipe. This recipe has different ingredients, color and taste: why bechamel? No, really, why?

Because when people are looking in Google for a keto substitute for Bechamel in their recipe, they won’t find it if I name it something else. I want people to be able to find a substitute easily.
