Self-care is so important, especially now. Bone broth is considered to be one of the most ancient and remarkable nutritional substances on the planet, says Dr. Josh Axe, author of Bone Broth Breakthrough. His book holds 50 nourishing recipes, and I chose four to make and one from another source. Check out these 5 bone broth soups to make this year for optimal health.
At a recent healthy living convention I attended, I was given the Bone Broth Breakthrough, then later in the year, they sent me two bone broth powders to try – Pure and Turmeric. Here are five soups I have made so far with the bone broths. AND, you’ll find that all these soups are easy to make, nothing hard or time-consuming at all.
Bone Broth Soups to Make This Year
What I love most about the bone broth powders is that they last longer than the liquid broths in a can or box. Second, how can you beat 20g of protein, no carbs, and no sugars? Not to mention, gut-friendly, Paleo-friendly, and 100% natural. It gets better by being dairy-free, soy-free, grain-free, nut-free, and gluten-free. This soup is one serious bone broth powder that you should try!
5 Bone Broth Soups to Make This Year
While making the below soups, I have to tell you that I never go by a recipe in its entirety. I mean, first of all, I use what I have in my kitchen cabinets before I buy an ingredient that I might not ever use again, and second, I may not like what’s in the recipe, so I add or replace an ingredient I like better. My husband gets so mad at me when I do this, but it works for me, and my family usually loves the recipe. One thing for sure, these are excellent healthy soups to make in 2020.
Bone Broth Meatball Soup
A meat lover’s dream. Filled with grass-fed meat and veggies.
- 1-1/2 lbs grass-fed ground beef, venison, or bison (or pre-made meatballs)
- Two eggs whisked
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp paprika or cayenne
- Two tbs coconut oil
Note: I used pre-made meatballs (from venison/pork) because my husband works for a wild game processing family-owned business.
- Three scoops Bone Broth Protein (Pure) mixed with 36 oz water
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Four carrots, peeled and chopped (or use baby carrots as I did)
- large sweet potato or any kind of potato, chopped
- 1 cup asparagus or another green veggie, chopped
- 1 cup bell pepper or another green vegetable, chopped
- Mix meat, eggs, sea salt, paprika, and cayenne together. Roll into medium size balls.
- In a large cast-iron pot over medium heat, heat coconut oil, and add meatballs and cook for about 8 minutes.
- Add bone broth, sea salt, carrots & potato, bringing to a simmer over medium-high heat.
- Add your greens and simmer for 20-30 minutes, making sure all veggies are cooked to your liking.
Broccoli Cauliflower Bone Broth Soup
If anything, this is the bone broth soup to make this year for your overall wellness. Make it once, then enjoy the leftovers! And, it’s probably the easiest soup I’ve ever made, but I can’t guarantee your kids are going to love it…or even like it.
- 5 Scoops Bone Broth Protein (Pure or Turmeric) mixed with 60 oz water
- 1 tbsp ground turmeric (omit if using Turmeric BBP)
- Two garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- One head of broccoli, chopped into small pieces
- One head of cauliflower, cut into small pieces
- medium yellow onion, diced
- pepper to taste
Note: My husband has already told me he will not eat this soup either, so I halved the recipe and made it just for me. It’s very yummy and a feel-good soup if you’re feeling under the weather.
- In a large pot over medium heat, heat broth, ground turmeric (if using), garlic, and sea salt to a simmer.
- While simmering, add broccoli, cauliflower, and onion. Simmer for 10 mins.
- Remove from heat, stir it, then serve.
Dairy-free Creamy Tomato Soup
This soup was the first one I made from the book. My 10-year-old son loved it. I had recently shared this recipe in another post, so instead of rewriting it here, please go to my Healthy Holiday Gift Guide for 2019 to view the recipe. It’s worth it.
Coconut Curry Bone Broth Soup
- Four scoops Bone Broth Protein (Turmeric) mixed in 48 oz of water
- One tablespoon of freshly grated ginger root or 1/2 tsp of ground ginger
- 2-3 tablespoons of curry powder (depends on how you like the taste of curry)
- yellow onion, chopped
- 2 cups small cauliflower florets
- Two red peppers, chopped
- A tsp of cayenne pepper if you want your soup hot (optional)
- Can (14 oz) coconut full-fat milk
- In a large pot over medium heat, bring bone broth and ginger to a simmer. Add curry powder, onion, cauliflower, peppers, and cayenne (if adding).
- Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 mins.
- Add coconut milk, stir until well combined and cook for an additional 5-10 mins.
I halved the recipe because it looks like I’ll be the only one eating this soup. Curry has a required taste, and my husband won’t have it! Just in case it’s your first time to cook with curry and turmeric, just know that both spices will discolor your pan, utensils, and anything else that it gets on. Be careful.
Ginger & Onion Whole Grains and Beans Soup
I made this soup recipe from the back of Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grains and Beans Soup Mix and used Bone Broth Protein (Pure) instead of the vegetable broth it called for – so yummy. So yes, you can replace the broth it calls for with Bone Broth Protein Powder – Pure or Turmeric. I’ve been eating on this soup for days!
I’ve enjoyed making soups this year from Dr. Josh Axe’s book and using Ancient Nutrition’s Bone Broth Protein Pure & Turmeric. I showcased them both in my recent Healthy Holiday Gift Guide for 2019. Since receiving the book, I haven’t been able to put it down. Check out Ancient Nutrition when you get the chance.
