The paleo diet involves meals made of fruits, vegetables, eggs, lean meat, and fish. These paleo soup recipes use those ingredients to help you make delicious soups for any season. If you’re watching your health, know these soups have nutrients for a balanced diet.
Eating a paleo diet can help you manage your health and lose weight, with participants in paleo studies losing over six pounds more than people on other diets. This sausage and spinach soup hits the spot when you want a filling soup with a perfect balance of meat and vegetables.
Use Italian sausage, diced potatoes, carrots, and plenty of spinach. Onion, garlic, and oregano add that signature Italian flavor. Chicken stock gives the soup’s base a rich mouthfeel and ensures this soup is a filling meal.
Zucchini soup with sweet potato scoops is a great way to use zucchini when you can’t think of anything else. Zucchini contains so much fiber and water that it’s an ideal ingredient to aid digestion.
Combine grated zucchini with chicken stock and coconut milk for the soup base. Onion, nutmeg, and lemon juice help bring out the flavors in this soup. Sweet potato scoops are a healthy side dish that adds some crunch to the meal—use these instead of croutons or bread.
There are many variations of chicken soup, but this chicken and avocado soup is one of the most flavorful. Dice or shred chicken breast and fry it up for warmth and flavor. Add it to the chicken stock, then flavor the broth with green onions, garlic, cilantro, and cumin.
A splash of lime juice heightens all these flavors. Add the diced avocado before serving the soup to ensure it stays fresh and green.
If you have leftover chicken from the previous recipe, you can’t resist trying the paleo chicken pot pie soup. Add celery, carrots, red onion, and frozen peas to the chicken stock for the true pot pie flavor. A can of coconut cream makes the taste richer than you could imagine.

Paleo mushroom beef stew is one of the most filling soups out there. The beef and mushroom pair perfectly, making this robust stew an entire meal.
You can use any type of mushroom for this recipe, though ribeye or a New York Strip steak is the best choice for the meat. Use beef stock as the base to bring out the flavors. Garlic, onion, sea salt, and fresh black pepper round out the dish.
A slow cooker is a wonderful invention that allows you to cook dinner without much work. This recipe for slow cooker paleo bison stew is simple—throw the ingredients into the slow cooker and let it simmer for four to five hours.
While it cooks, the onion, beef stock, garlic, and thyme bring out the rich flavors of the ground bison. You’ll get your serving of veggies thanks to the tomatoes, carrots, and rutabagas.
The slow cooker is such a great way to make soup that we spotlighted another recipe for you, this time our slow cooker butternut squash soup. This recipe stands out compared to other butternut squash recipes due to the addition of apples, which give it some sweetness.

Once your mouth is watering from the simmering scent, use the immersion blender to make the soup. You can make it as thick as you’d like.
Cream of mushroom soup might sound like a dish that doesn’t need a recipe, but you’ll appreciate the extra flavors in this option. Garlic, onion, paprika, and thyme level this soup into a full meal.
