Originally, I was hoping to create this recipe purely for my keto diet. However, I learned that coconut or almond flour is not a thickening agent as found on the internet. The very first time after the soup was cooked, the soup basically separated into 2 layers, ie. cheese and keto flour mixture with broth.
It took me a while to perfect this soup recipe. At the end, the traditional way of using roux to make smooth and cheesy soup is the way to go.
Andouille sausage is spicy. If you want to stay away from any spicy food, replace it with regular cooked kielbasa sausage.
The first few times when I made this soup, I realized that the cheese didn't melt as nice and smooth as it is supposed to be. Then, I finally learned that whisking the roux with broth little by little solves the problem. So, here are the steps that I want you to follow so that your soup will come out perfectly for you:
- When you whisk in broth with roux, the butter and flour mixture, add one cup only. Just eyeball it.
- Once the mixture is mixed and thickened, add another cup of broth. Repeat this step with the remaining broth.
- That will give the cheese a great foundation to melt it nicely later.
