This post is sponsored by Moon Cheese, thank you for supporting the brands that make delicious Cast Iron Keto recipes EPIC.

This easy Loaded Turnip Soup is a great low-carb variation of traditional loaded potato soup, except we’ve swapped out the starchy tubers for turnips. Turnips are a good substitute for potatoes in lots of keto recipes, like these Keto Breakfast Potatoes, because they provide a similar flavor and texture once cooked with only 3.1 grams on net carbs per 100 grams. But the best part about this soup is the toppings… any recipe topped with bacon, chives, and cheddar moon cheese gets an A+ in my book.  

We have partnered with the good folks at Moon Cheese for this recipe to really display the versatility of my personal favorite cheese snack in the kitchen. For this recipe and other soups, Moon Cheese makes a great topper because it plays the role of both cheese and cracker. If you’ve never tried Moon Cheese, think cheesy oyster cracker, but better.  

In the past, we have used Moon Cheese dust to create Keto Cheesy Chicken Poppers and yes, they are as delicious as they sound.

Moon Cheese is a great snack to munch on all by itself, but I personally love to use it in my own homemade version of a savory low-carb trail mix.  It’s not really a recipe just a combination of things that are always in my snack drawer, but it usually includes some of the following: Moon Cheese, pumpkin seeds, some sort of nut (pecans or macadamia nuts usually for their fat content), maybe a little bit of beef jerky or sliced meat stick and you’ve got a great low carb snack with endless flavor combinations to satisfy your palette.  I practically keep a bag in my hiking backpack, but you could toss keep some in your gym bag, or simply in the center console of your car for snack emergencies.

Back to this Loaded Turnip Soup which, by the way, is incredibly easy to make plus it’s super filling and nourishing. I don’t know what the weather has been like in your part of the world this spring, but I feel like we’ve seen way more rain this year than in previous years. There are few things more comforting in this world than a hot bowl of soup on a dreary day, and this soup checks all the boxes. Seriously though, is there any meal more comforting than soup?
