No matter what time of year it is or what ingredients are in season, soup is always a winner. It’s nourishing, and it’s usually use to make. Check out these paleo recipes for soups, stews, chilis, chowders, and gazpachos.
1. Three Meat Raspberry Chili
I think the combination of chili and raspberries is pretty brilliant. This unique soup/stew is creamy with full fat coconut milk, hearty with chicken liver, bacon fat, ground beef, ground pork, and veggies, and has a mole-like flavor thanks to the cacao powder, which you cam omit for Whole30.
2. Vegan Garam Masala Carrot Soup
This gorgeous and silky carrot soup is made with onions, garam masala seasoning, cayenne pepper, kosher salt, coconut milk, lime juice, and optional microgreens for topping. If you like things spicier, you can up the cayenne measurement for added heat.
3. Manhattan Cod Chowder
This lighter version of the traditional creamy dish is perfect for spring. Best part? It’s ready in half an hour! All you need is cod filets, yams, onion, celery, minced garlic, olive oil, water, broth, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, salt, pepper, and dried thyme leaves. So easy!
4. Roasted Garlic Almond Potato Soup Recipe
I don’t think I’ve ever heard of or tasted a soup quite like this one. It has an unusual ad intriguing combination of flavors, using potatoes, almond milk, veggie stock, roasted garlic, blanched almonds, salt, apple cider vinegar, and orange juice, and even a little almond extract to enhance the almond flavor. Serve with grapes or melon pieces!
5. Tomato Cauliflower Egg Drop Soup
Here’s another winning recipe that’s done in less than half an hour, and is perfect for dinner with your family. The riced cauliflower adds a lovely texture to what’s otherwise a smooth and silky sop with crushed tomatoes, egg, salt, and freshly ground black pepper.
6. Spring Green Soup With Sugar Snap Peas
I don’t know about you, but I can’t resist a gorgeous bag of fresh greens at the farmer’s market. Even though I’m not a huge salad eater and I know they won’t get used up in time, I still buy them. This soup is the perfect way to use greens, along with peas, ginger, and more.
7. Sweet Potato, Artichoke, and Bacon Soup
I love the combination of hearty ingredients in this soup, including sweet potatoes, bone broth, bacon, artichoke heats, minced garlic, ground ginger, and green onions. The flavor is absolutely amazing, with the salty flavor of the bacon enhancing the sweetness of the potatoes.
8. Paleo Chicken and Leek Soup
Leeks add a fabulous onion-like flavor to soups, and they’re great in this soup with cauliflower, zucchini, chicken, carrots, and onions. This is like a souped-up chicken soup for the soul (see what I did there?) and it’s not short on flavor.
9. Kale Sausage Soup

Made with vine-ripened tomatoes, this refreshing soup is perfect for summertime when you need something healthy and filling but can’t bring yourself to stand over the stove. It also has cucumber, red pepper, cayenne, lime juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and fresh basil leaves.
11. Hungarian Lecso
This traditional Hungarian pepper stew is full of flavor with lots of bell peppers, bacon, lard, sweet Hungarian paprika, and optional brats or sausage links. If you leave out the sausage, you still have the bacon as a complement, but the flavors of the peppers are the star of the show.
12. Grain Free Matzo Ball Soup
Yes, you read that right—this is matzo ball soup that’s paleo friendly! The matzo balls are made with white potatoes and potato starch (so, an occasional indulgence) and served in a delicious chicken soup with chicken, carrots, celery, and dill.

Whether someone in your home is feeling under the weather, or you’re just craving some old-timey comfort food, this classic chicken soup is perfect. You’ll need shredded chicken, garlic, olive oil, thyme, chicken broth, carrots, celery, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper.
14. Roasted Asparagus, Cauliflower, and Mushroom Soup
This fresh and green soup is perfect for spring, but it’s heartier than it seems. The mushrooms add an earthiness that is the perfect complement to fresh asparagus, and cauliflower helps make it creamy without dairy or coconut milk. Fresh basil and lemon zest add spring flavors!
15. Chicken Sausage and Fennel Soup
Made with Italian style chicken sausage and lots of veggies, this soup is sure to fill you up and warm you on a chilly night. Of course, it’s so tasty you won’t want to save it for winter. All that fennel, lacinato kale, mushrooms, onion, garlic, and other flavors will call to you all year long.

I love this amazing curry, because it’s the perfect way to cook okra and it tastes fabulous with curry powder, shrimp, coconut nectar, coconut milk, allspice, ginger, thyme, sweet paprika, onion, garlic, and more. You can replace the diary free butter with real butter.
18. Creamy Pumpkin Sage Soup

21. Turmeric Vegetable Soup
We’ve been talking a lot about meat-based soups, but just because you’re paleo doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good meat-free veggie soup as well. This one has garlic, cabbage, onion, celery, zucchini, tomatoes, kale, baby spinach, ground turmeric, and more.

24. Crock Pot Thai Chicken Curry

35. Roasted Cauliflower Chowder
This creamy chowder needs only one paleo accommodation: instead of heavy cream, use the suggested cashew milk, which is absolutely delicious with the butter, garlic, carrots, cauliflower, chicken broth, celery, and red bell pepper. The whole family will love this.
36. Spicy Mussel Soup
Mussels need only to be added to a basic stock for a deliciously rich and elegant meal that is so easy to prepare. For this one, you’ll need mussels, shallots, garlic, fish stock, coconut milk, chili paste, lemon juice, Thai basil, white wine, and a cooking fat of your choice (I’d pick butter).
