My Go-To Bone Broth Soup | Reclaiming Yesterday

[My Go-To Bone Broth Soup is creamy and ridiculously easy to make. I love to have it on hand for quick breakfasts and lunches to get in extra veggies and all the health benefits of bone broth!]

When my health was really bad a few years ago I did a therapeutic diet that centered around bone broth. I ate soup made with bone broth for every meal for a month, and then at least once a day for about 6 months. 

Even after all that soup, I STILL LOVE BONE BROTH. 

Bone broth has the ability to heal our bodies from the inside out – improving our gut health, the elasticity of our skin, and strengthening our hair and nails. (You can read how to make bone broth and more about its health benefits in this blog post.)

Soup? For Breakfast? 🤔

My favorite time to eat this creamy bone broth soup? For breakfast.

Listen before you judge. 

What we need for breakfast is vitamins and carbs from veggies, some protein, and some healthy fat. What we don’t need is lots of sugar! 

If you’re trying to transition to less sweet, more veggie-filled breakfasts, this soup is your secret weapon.

It’s warm, creamy, and the yellow squash and parsnip make it mild and a little sweet. 

And it’s such a wholesome way to start out your day! It keeps you full and won’t give you that mid-morning blood sugar crash that lots of “standard” breakfast foods can.

A non-recipe recipe 

I’ll be honest, I never measure when I make this soup. I just chop and throw things into a pot. Boil, blend, and call it a day. 

BUT I always get questions about my creamy “breakfast soups” when I post them to Instagram, so I thought I’d do a post already. 😀

This is easy. Here we go:

First: Chop veggies, throw them into a pot. 

Then: Cover veggies with bone broth (or store bought broth or stock if you don’t have homemade bone broth)

SEASON and COOK

I keep the seasoning super simple with some Coconut Aminos and dried herbs (thyme and Herbs de Provence are my favorite here).

Then you just boil the soup until the parsnips are tender, about 10 minutes or so.

BLEND 

Once your veggies are cooked, you can let the soup cool for a bit and then add everything to a blender. Blend until ultra creamy. 😍

If you’d prefer to use an immersion blender, feel free. But using a high powered blender (I use a refurbished Blendtec) will give you that insanely creamy texture that really puts this soup over the top, in my opinion. 👌

Taking your soup to next-level yummy 

You can eat the soup just on it’s own—maybe with a drizzle of olive oil. It’s creamy and fab. 

But I like to top mine with some kind of protein: ground sausage, leftover chicken I crisp up in the cast iron, grass-fed ground beef, bacon — whatever you have on hand and love. 

I also like to wilt a little spinach and throw on some sliced radish for texture (and extra veggies.) 

Are you thinking, nah that looks too fancy for me…?

If you are, then stop.

It’s not fancy. It’s not hard. I promise. 

Here’s a bowl I warmed up and topped with sausage and wilted spinach (was out of radish) and took a pic with my iPhone at 7:15 in the morning before work (while in my jammies and slippers.) 

It took literally 6 minutes to make.

Make this soup on the weekend, and have ready-to reheat breakfasts and lunches throughout the week!

You’re going to join the Bone Broth Breakfast Soup Club very soon, I can feel it 😉 

My Go-To Bone Broth Soup

Makes 4-5 servings of soup

My Go-To Bone Broth Soup

Ingredients

  • 3 cups diced parsnip (3 small-medium parsnips, peeled)
  • 2.5 cups diced yellow squash (1-2 medium yellow squash)
  • 4 cups bone broth* (1 quart)
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
  • 1.5 teaspoon dried thyme or Herbs de Provence
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Add diced parsnips and squash to a large pot along with broth, Coconut Aminos, and dried herbs.
  2. Bring to a bowl, then reduce heat slightly and cover. Cook until parsnips are tender when pierced with a fork, 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Add everything to a blender* (you may need to work in batches depending on the size of your blender) and blend until very smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning to your preference by adding salt or more Coconut Aminos.
  4. Serve soup on its own with a drizzle of olive oil, or add meat (leftover chicken, sausage, beef, bacon, etc.) wilted spinach, and sliced radish. Finish with a few chili flakes, if desired!

Notes

I like to use homemade bone broth here, but if you don't have bone broth, you can use store bought broth or stock! If using store bought, look for a low sodium version so you can control the saltiness.

If you’d prefer to use an immersion blender, feel free. But using a high powered blender (I use a refurbished Blendtec) will give you that insanely creamy texture that really puts this soup over the top, in my opinion.

  1. This is great – just wondering if you think this form of bone broth soup would be “too much” food during the 16 hour fasting window? I’m doing IF and new to bone broth soup. I’m loving its simplicity and I have only so far adventured as far as onions and some seasoning. I don’t want to blow it at the 15th hour. Thanks!

    • Hi Joe! I think this soup is a great way to break your fast, but I wouldn’t include it during your fasting window! Anything that affects your blood sugar at all should be avoided during fasting hours! I eat this soup a lot though when I’m not fasting but want to give my digestive system a little break. Also, if I do a fast and want to ease back into eating regularly, this is my go-to soup 🙂
