26 Scrumptious AIP Soup Recipes

Louise | January 3

Traditionally, homemade soup was vegetable-based with perhaps pasta or rice which is great, but I am all in favor of trying new ideas. So here I have listed 26 AIP Scrumptious Soup Recipes to help you experiment with your cooking.

There are some thick and hearty dishes like my favorite, the Broccoli and Bacon Soup, or you could go wild and try a chilled soup! Not sure? Just imagine a refreshing bowl of Mint and Avocado Chilled Soup as a wonderful light lunch on a hot summer’s day!

Soup can also be a great way of getting kids to eat more vegetables, as some of them, mine included, can be a bit reluctant when it comes to greens!

Here are just a few of the AIP Soup Recipes we’ve included:

Ingredients: avocado, romaine lettuce, coconut milk, lime juice, mint leaves, salt.

This soup would make the perfect appetizer for a summertime meal as it is chilled, yet packed with fresh flavors from the lime and mint.

This is also a great recipe for a light lunch if you are short on time as it only takes 5 minutes to prepare.

Chilled Blueberry-Rosemary Soup

– The Paleo Couple

Ingredients: blueberries, coconut milk, rosemary, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt.

One of the wonderful things about cooking with blueberries is the color they give the food! They are so vibrant and are packed with anti-oxidants, so they are good for you too. This recipe would be great to serve on a hot day, but it can also be served as a breakfast smoothie, or even frozen in popsicle molds for a fabulous summery treat.

– Paleo Flourish


Ingredients: cucumber, honeydew melon, mint leaves.

This is another no-cook recipe that is perfect for a summer meal. It is refreshing and light and ideal if you are busy as it only takes a few minutes to make. The melon gives a natural sweetness to the dish and between the melon and cucumber the soup can help rehydrate your system after a workout. Garnish with a mint leaf to make an impressive starter for a dinner with friends.

Chicken noodle soup is a favorite with so many of us, children included! This is a perfect recipe to encourage the kids to eat more veggies – they don’t even think of the ‘noodles’ as vegetables! You can use a potato peeler to create thin strips, or treat yourself to a spiralizer and have fun making this.

Ginger Chicken Soup

– Fed+Fit

Ingredients: chicken, straw mushrooms, ginger, garlic, chicken broth, water, cilantro.

We all know the old story of chicken soup being used as a remedy for illness, but this soup really can help you heal. The ginger aids digestion and can help with nausea, and can also help soothe a sore throat. So if you are a bit run down, try a bowl of this chicken soup to perk you up again! Even if you are in perfect health you will still enjoy its warming flavors.

Homemade Thai Chicken Soup

Homemade Thai Chicken Soup
Ingredients: chicken, lemongrass, basil leaves, ginger, lime, salt.

The ginger can help if you have a sore throat or digestion problems and the fresh flavors of the lime and lemongrass give this soup a real zing! Also, the aromas from the basil make the dish smell just as good as it looks.

AIP Soup Recipes – Pork, Beef and Bacon Soups

Thai Tom Saap Pork Ribs Soup

– Paleo Flourish

Thai Tom Saap Pork Ribs Soup Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]
Ingredients: pork spare ribs or other meats, red shallots or yellow onion, lemongrass, galangal or ginger, water, kaffir lime leaves or cilantro, lime juice, fish sauce, salt, green onion (optional).

In Thailand, soups are very popular and are even served as street food. A lot of their soups are paleo, and are packed with Asian flavors like lemongrass and ginger. Normally this dish is served packed full of chilies, so you could experiment to find the amount that suits you. One tip we can add is to bruise the lemongrass slightly before adding, letting out more of its flavor.

Polish Cabbage Soup

– Stupid Easy Paleo

Ingredients: pork, cabbage, sauerkraut, chicken broth, sea salt.

This recipe is another example showing that sometimes simple is best. No complicated cooking and simple ingredients giving you a filling dish with meaty goodness. If you can’t find salt pork you could use bacon, but taste the soup first before you add the salt as some bacon can be quite salty. This is a good soup to make if you are on a budget too – no expensive ingredients here.

Slow-Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

– Jan’s Sushi Bar

Ingredients: soup bones with meat, water, dried thyme, dried basil, onion, carrots, parsnips, turnips, salt.

This is a delicious and warming soup that is not too heavy on the wallet, as it is made with soup bones which you can find cheaply – just ask your butcher if they are not on display. The slow cooking method means the meat will be tender and adding the vegetables halfway through ensures they are not mushy. This is another dish that tastes even better next day, so if you have time, make it before you need it and store in the fridge.

Broccoli and Bacon Soup

– Cavegirl Cuisine

Ingredients: bacon, onion, parsnip, carrot, celery, garlic, broth of choice, broccoli, sea salt.

Here is another soup that will satisfy your hunger at lunchtime! The bacon gives it a fantastic meaty flavor, yet the celery keeps it from being too heavy. You can use whatever broth you have and of course, you can change the vegetables if you want to – asparagus would be a good substitute for the celery for example. Top with the crispy bacon to give the dish a lovely contrast in texture.

Cauliflower, Leek, and Bacon Soup

– Paleo Flourish


Ingredients: cauliflower, chicken broth or vegetable broth, leek, bacon, salt.

There is nothing better on a chilly day than a steaming hot bowl of rich and tasty homemade soup. If you are used to using a potato to thicken soups then you will be really surprised that cauliflower works just as well, and carries the flavors of the leek and bacon very well. The added texture of the bacon pieces on top of the soup makes this dish a hearty and satisfying lunch or even an appetizer.

AIP Soup Recipes – Seafood Soups

Simple Coconut Seafood Soup

– Paleo Flourish

paleo seafood soup recipe
Ingredients: chicken stock, button mushrooms or other mushrooms, kale, romaine lettuce, tilapia fillets, shrimp or prawns, mussels (optional), coconut cream, fish sauce (optional), salt.

This soup is creamy and delicious and packed with great flavors of the sea. If you choose not to add the fish sauce the soup will still taste great, but it really adds to the end result. If you don’t have tilapia, any other meaty fish would work here – try cod or coley or even salmon, just be careful not to stir too vigorously or you risk breaking up the fish.

Coconut Lemongrass Shrimp Soup (Tom Kha Gai)

– Paleo Flourish

paleo coconut lemongrass shrimp soup (tom kha gai thai soup)
Ingredients: wild-caught raw brown shrimp, coconut cream, chicken stock, button mushrooms, lemongrass stalk, ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, salt, cilantro.

This lovely soup can be ready to eat in 30 minutes, making it a great dish to make when you get home after a busy day. As this is a creamy soup, it is so satisfying that it can be used as a main meal. The fish sauce adds a real depth of flavor to this dish and compliments the seafood well. If you or your family don’t like kale, simply swap it out for another vegetable e.g. spinach.

Salmon Stew/Kitchen Sink Soup

– Paleo Flourish

Easy salmon soup recipe [Paleo, AIP, Low Carb, Keto]
Ingredients: chicken broth, salmon fillets, parsley, Swiss chard or spinach or cavalo, Italian squash, garlic, lemon juice, salt.

I can almost hear you thinking “why kitchen sink”? It’s because that’s what you can use in this recipe – everything but the kitchen sink! This soup tastes great because the veggies go well with the salmon, but you can use the recipe as a base and add whatever veggies and protein you have. For example, you could use chicken with leeks and celery, or turkey with kale and broccoli. Just have fun with different ideas!

Creamy Cod & Shrimp Chowder

Ingredients: cauliflower, parsnips, onion, garlic, seafood stock or chicken broth and clam juice, sea salt, coconut milk (optional), dried dill weed, cod fillet, shrimp.

The cauliflower and parsnip give this soup a fantastic creamy texture, contrasting really well with the meaty fish and shrimp. This is a filling recipe that could be served as a main course, but this also tastes great if you chill it and serve cold for a lunchtime dish. To add even more flavor and texture you can sprinkle some crispy bacon bits over the top before serving.

AIP Soup Recipes – Vegetable Soups

Sweet Potato Carrot Apple Ginger Soup

– Paleo Flourish

Sweet Potato Carrot Apple Ginger Soup Recipe
Ingredients: sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, ginger, chicken broth, salt.

There is something so satisfying in a bowl of thick and delicious soup, especially on a chilly day, and this soup also has a bit of a kick from the ginger, leaving you warmed through. The choice of apple you use here is totally up to you, but a cooking apple would be best as it won’t add too much sweetness to the dish.

Spaghetti Squash Soup with Apples

– Paleo Flourish

paleo spaghetti squash soup recipe
Ingredients: spaghetti squash, apple, chicken stock, cinnamon, cloves, salt.

This is another soup recipe that will give you the comfort food you need on a cold day, as the cinnamon and cloves give this soup a real taste of winter spice. It is up to you what type of apples you use, but try not to use one that is too sweet. To remove the seeds easily from the squash you can use a spoon or an ice cream scoop.

Creamy Carrot & Parsnip Soup

– The Paleo Couple

Ingredients: cauliflower, onion, parsnip, carrot, celery, garlic, sea salt, dried basil, dried thyme, bay leaf, extra virgin olive oil, water.

Blended soups are such a good idea as they can be a great way to get kids, or reluctant spouses, to eat more vegetables. Just don’t tell them what’s in there! This soup is creamy, yet not too filling and has the benefit of the fresh taste of basil. It is also a fantastic way to use up veggies that you have in the house and it can be frozen and used later if you want to.

Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Fried Sage

– Slim Palate

Ingredients: cauliflower, AIP fat of choice, yellow onion, garlic, coconut milk, salt, sage leaves, lard.

Roasting the cauliflower for this recipe gives it a slightly nutty flavor and is perfect for anyone missing out on cream-based soups, either for health reasons or for weight loss. Adding the fried sage leaves is not a necessity, but if you give it a try you will find it really adds something special! This recipe can also be made dairy-free by using coconut oil instead of ghee.

Zucchini Soup

– Primally Inspired

Ingredients: zucchini, onion, olive oil or fat of choice, garlic, chicken stock or broth, sea salt, basil leaves.

Even though this recipe does not call for any dairy at all, it tastes so creamy because of the consistency of the zucchini. The basil adds a hint of freshness and is aromatic, and because the soup is blended it can be used to encourage the kids to eat more veggies. This soup freezes well, so if you have zucchini needing used up, you could batch-cook this and freeze for later.

Easy Butternut Squash Soup

– Paleo Flourish

butternut squash soup
Ingredients: onion, chicken broth, butternut squash, coconut oil, salt.

Butternut squash, when cooked and blended, gives a wonderful smooth yet hearty texture to this soup, making it a great winter lunch or a snack to heat you up when you get home. You don’t need to cut the veggies small as the blender will cope with them! Just be careful when you are cutting up the squash as the skin can be quite tough.

Lemongrass Ginger Carrot Soup

– Stupid Easy Paleo

Ingredients: olive oil, onion, carrots, ginger, lemongrass, chicken bone broth.

The lemongrass and ginger add a real sense of Asian spice to this soup, making it a great idea for serving in winter, but this can also be served chilled as a summertime lunch. This soup freezes really well and defrosts quite quickly – a great idea for unexpected guests! If you would prefer a more substantial meal you could add in some cooked chicken to give you a hearty dinner.

Super Green Soup

– Zenbelly

Ingredients: leeks, broccoli, spinach, garlic, chicken or vegetable stock, coconut oil, salt.

If you have children who don’t eat greens then don’t panic! Recipes like this one can come to the rescue. Kids will be more likely to try a smooth soup with no obvious lumps. This soup is delicious, nutritious and can be served as an appetizer or just in a cup for a mid-meal snack, or it would be a fantastic warmer for kids when they come home from school.

Fennel and Oven Roasted Beet Soup

– The Healthy Foodie

Ingredients: beets, water, onion, fennel bulb, Royal Gala apple, vegetable broth, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt.

Beets can add such an amazing color to dishes, as well as giving that lovely earthy flavor. The fennel lends an aniseed note to the soup, but this is offset by the sweetness of the apple. Using the fennel fronds as a garnish just finishes the soup off really well and this would make a great appetizer for a dinner party as it looks very impressive.

Sweet Potato Soup

– Bravo for Paleo

Ingredients: sweet potatoes, chicken broth, garlic powder, cinnamon, rosemary, salt.

The color you get from the sweet potatoes in this dish is so appealing! It even looks warming and delicious, and the cinnamon and garlic make it aromatic too. If you prefer not to have your soup as thick as this just add in some more broth, but thick soups can really give you the ‘feel good’ factor, especially on a cold night or after a busy day.

Quick Onion Soup

– Meatified

Ingredients: avocado oil or coconut oil or lard, yellow onions, balsamic vinegar, pork stock, salt, bay leaves, thyme.

With only a few ingredients, this rich onion soup is nutritious, filling and ideal if you are cooking on a budget! Some onion soup recipes end up quite sweet, but the addition of the balsamic vinegar helps to enrich the flavor and cut through the sweetness of the onions. Once the soup is blended, it has a fantastic smooth texture and would also make an excellent gravy for steaks or chops.
