Oh heyyyyy cooler weather, I see you. And I see the promise of bonfires, sweaters, and most importantly, SOUP.
I am a soup lover and in all honesty, I don’t need it to be cool to make soup. I’m happy to eat a piping hot cup of soup when it’s 110 degrees out. But there is something about a chill in the air and a warm mug in your hand.
I’ve spent years enjoying the heck out of soup and felt it was time to share my favorite recipes!
Look for WF (Whole Food), P (Paleo) and K (Keto) at the end of each description to help you find recipes to meet your goals.
- Sausage and Pepper Soup: Slightly smoky and a rich flavor, this is a great recipe uses plenty of bell peppers and is a great recipe to bridge the gap between summer and fall. WF, P, K
- Chicken Pot Pie Soup: I’ve made this more times than I can count. If you’re missing chicken pot pie, this soup is the solution. You can sub turkey for chicken so it makes a great post-Thanksgiving meal! As a bonus, it’s a HIT with my kids every time I make it. WF, P
- Zucchini Lasagna Soup: I have never been successful at making lasagna with zucchini noodles, but now that I found this soup, I DON’T HAVE TO! It has all the goodness of lasagna with the bonus of being soup. WF, K
- White Chicken Chili: This beanless version feels a little more like a soup than a chili, but it’s packed with flavor! If you want to thicken it, mix 1 TBS tapioca starch with 1 TBS cold water. Once that is well dissolved, mix it into the soup and let it sit for 5 minutes. WF, P
- Red Pepper Bisque with Shrimp: I’ve lived in the Midwest my entire life and am solidly a beef girl, so I’m not overly confident making seafood based dishes. But this soup is easy, tasty, and adds some much needed variety to my palate! WF, P, K
- Whole30 Creamy Taco Soup: We have Taco Tuesday pretty much every week, but sometimes I just get tired of plain ol’ Tacos. I throw this recipe in every few months and it’s a nice change of pace! WF, P, K
- Thai Meatball and Egg Drop Soup: This soup is worth the extra time it takes to make the meatballs. I love egg drop soup, but I also like my soups to be a meal in and of themselves. This soup checks both boxes and you need it in your life. WF, P, K
- Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup: How can something that looks so gross taste so good? It’s goopy, creepy Halloween win, but it’s also a post Easter staple because split pea NEEDS a ham bone. If I don’t have a full Ham Hock (like the recipe calls for), I throw in a ham bone and dice some leftover ham. WF
- Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup: I LOVE chicken tortilla soup and so does my family. This is our favorite recipe. It calls for adding tortilla chips, which you may not consider a whole food- I don’t really either. BUT I think it’s ok to deviate occasionally and tortilla chips are amazing. Also, this recipe is EASY to modify for Paleo or Keto- just omit the beans, corn, and chips. It still tastes great (trust me!). WF-ish
- Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup (AKA- Paleo Zuppa Toscana): Hellllllllo beautiful! Back in the day when I used to live at the Olive Garden, this was my FAVORITE soup. When I migrated to a Paleo approach years ago, my first task was to make a soup to fill the Zuppa Toscana gap. You’re welcome, world! WF, P
- Paleo Pizza Soup: I’m a fan of turning a favorite dish into a nutrient dense soup because everyone wins. This Pizza Soup is SUPER tasty and perfect for a Friday movie and pizza night. WF, P
- Paleo Coconut Curry Zoodle Soup: I love a great curry soup and by using zoodles, this recipe meets my Paleo and Keto needs. NOTE- this recipe suggest tofu OR chicken. If tofu is your jam, great! But you’re Paleo or Whole30, you’ll need to go with chicken. WF, P, K
- Chicken Soup: Is any soup list complete without good ol’ fashioned chicken soup? Probably not! So here you go! It’s soul satisfying and gut healing! WF, P
