Keto Soup Recipes

With so many soup recipes on the blog, it is time to mention a few for you to try. Apart from our broth, you should look at pumpkin soup with an edible pumpkin bowl. I am just in love with how it looks and because I love eating the bowl as a main course.

Wait, sausage sauerkraut soup is even better. It is our must-have Christmas soup on the table, and every time we go skying to Slovakia, this awesomeness is ordered daily.

Next comes tomato soup, which you can use even during a whole summer as a Gazpacho or whey soup filled with natural protein that reminds me of childhood potato soup.

Taco soup for Tuesday or a stove-cooked chicken noodles soup, a kind of homemade broth made with chicken.

What is Bone Broth?

Bone Broth is a stock or soup containing brewed bones and tissues that are either cooked for a very long time or pressure cooked faster.

Collagen is extracted by cooking bones and is used for many benefits we all crave.

Due to this process, the outcome of broth or stock gives us great nutrition, and therefore, it is popular and used for so many dishes.

What are the benefits of keto bone broth?

The gelatinous broth is loaded with many health benefits as an example:

  • Bone broth contains minerals and electrolytes.
  • The amount of collagen and amino acids found in bone broth greatly helps our joints.
  • Bone Broth helps heal, fighting colds and flu.
  • The amount of nutrition in bone broth also greatly helps our immune system to function properly.

The benefits of bone broth are really extensive to explain them all here.

Does Bone Broth Taste Good?

Depending on what additional ingredients you include, the flavor to the broth will be accordingly. Pure bone broth is usually not among the best-tasting bone broth soups. But as you add all of the veggies and herbs to make bone broth, it gives the broth its flavor, which is so delicious.

What is keto bone broth?

Keto, or low-carb bone broth, is a liquid broth mainly containing bones and vegetables allowed in our lifestyle. As some of the bone broth includes potatoes and typical noodles, those are not added to keto broth. Even if you will not eat them, the broth already contains some starches from potatoes and might raise your blood sugar.

Are there carbs in bone broth?

No, there are no carbs in a bone broth. But the way bone broth is made, there might be some starches from root vegetables released into the liquid, and therefore you have to be careful about what type of veggies you add in.
My daughter, a type one diabetic, needs to add a bit of insulin every time she eats the broth, even if it is just a pure liquid. 

Bone broth diet for fasting, weight loss

Bone Broth is the perfect way to start a journey into transforming your lifestyle. Whether you want to completely change your eating habits or just need to lose a few pounds or kilos, the bone broth will support you the whole way. 

I even give great importance to starting with bone broth if you are just a beginner in Keto or Low Carb Lifestyle. You can read more about it in How To Start with our lifestyle. 

Whether fasting, weight loss, or a total transformation, bone broth during the first few days helps you compress the cravings. It replaces your usual food choices but still gives you the necessary minerals and electrolytes during the process.

Bone broth works perfectly against keto flu symptoms, which can appear in some individuals.

Is bone broth better to drink in the morning or at night?

A soup broth is so nutritious and healthy that I would suggest you should include bone broth into your meal choices throughout the whole day. Drink it instead of morning tea or coffee, have it as a starter before lunch or dinner. You can even enjoy it as your midday snack.

How often should you drink bone broth on keto?

There are no limits on how often you can drink bone broth on keto. As it contains a minimal amount of carbohydrates and calories, you can have as much as you wish.

Keto chicken or beef broth for breakfast?

Maybe this is something you have never heard of, but it is more and more popular to have a lovely cup of bone broth first thing in the morning. This helps start your day healthy and gives you much-needed nutrition throughout the day. 

I love my cup of broth in a coffee cup, for example. Worth trying. 

Not to forget, I love my soup spicy, so every time I warm up the broth in my cup, I always add a few dry pieces of Capsicum paprika. That’s all I need to freshen up in the morning. And as we all know, anything spicy helps your metabolism to work faster and brings us to our goal of losing weight much closer than expected. 

How to make Bone Broth?

You can achieve the results of a perfect homemade bone broth in your kitchen in four main ways.

1. Stove-made bone broth 

This was the way I have made our bone broth for years. I have prepared it all and let it simmer for 12-24 hours, sometimes even two days. One disadvantage was that our stove is programmed for safety to switch off after a specific time. So I woke up some days with my bone broth switched off, but still pretty warm. In that way, I switched it back on and continued simmering for as long as needed.

2. Slow cooker bone broth

Using a slow cooker, you will achieve the same results as you would on a stove. The only difference, I would say, is the advantage of having it all under control. And especially not having to worry, that stove might switch off on its own after a while.

3. Pressure cooker bone broth

In this way, cooking the stock under pressure fastens the results. By pressurizing, the whole process will give you the same health benefits but much faster.

4. Instant Pot bone broth

Get an Instant Pot. Here you can cook your Bone broth either as a slow cooking option or a pressure cook option. You can even sauté the bones before starting your soup, which is also a great advantage.

So which one is your way? Or which one would you prefer?

Now you can guess which way I go:

Instant Pot bone broth on a keto diet

Since I got my Instant Pot, this recipe has been the most used. I love how easy this is. You do not have to take care of anything. Just prepare it, switch it on and leave. When you come back, your super trooper Keto Bone Broth is ready. 

It is extremely easy. Even sautéing the bones in it gives you much fewer dishes to clean. Magic, I would say.

Instant Pot beef bone broth recipe

I have used bones from beef in this recipe for great taste and benefits. I usually go to a butcher and ask him for some bones and knuckles, which he still cuts it into smaller pieces. It is also good to ask him to leave pieces of meat since that adds even more nutrition and flavor.

Marrow – YUM

Also, you could try to get bones with marrow inside. I just love to eat the bone marrow afterward with just a slice of our Keto Farmers Bread. It is lovely salty gelatine-like and one of the healthiest parts you can ever get from the bones. 

I have seen so many people also using leftover bones from their dinner. I have not tried it, but as it is excellent to sauté your bones, this might be a great option if you like. 

Can you use chicken bones for chicken bone broth?

Yes, and that is another perfect broth to have on hand. Chicken stock or chicken broth has a great advantage, especially when fighting the flu. My mum and now me as well, every time someone in the family gets sick, the first thing we do is cook a Broth. 

In the case of chicken, it is best to add chicken feet, as they contain the highest amount of collagen. 

This works perfectly for Keto flu as well. 

Is Instant Pot beef broth as healthy as a stove top or slow cooker bone broth? 

The answer to this is: Absolutely yes. It is as healthy as if you simmer it for 24 hours. 

The advantage of a pressure cooker is that everything works sealed and under pressure, which makes your broth faster and will lock in all of the minerals and vitamins. 

So very much, yes. It is as healthy as if you would cook it for 24 hours, if not more beneficial.

How to achieve the jelly texture in bone broth?

To get the most collagen from the bones and achieve the best gelatinous texture and rich taste, it is excellent if you sauté your bones before switching them into soup mode.

Also, the less water you add, the more gelatine you will get from the bones and the more gelatinous your soup will be.

So, in general, more bones and cover it with water just so the bones are covered. Plus, do not forget to saute them beforehand.

Extra gelatine bone broth:

  1. Sauté bones beforehand
  2. Use the least amount of water
  3. Pressure cook it for 2 hours
  4. Use natural release after the soup is cooked 

Why add vinegar to your bone broth?   

Apple Cider Vinegar helps to extract all of the minerals from the bones. If you do have a slight worry, use the mildest vinegar you can find or use lemon juice. They both work for the same benefits and give you the same results. 

Adding vinegar to a bone broth means you do not have to be worried about tasting the soup sour. It is only a spoon but works wonderfully.

Ways to enjoy low-carb bone broth.

There are so many ways you can enjoy and use the broth:

  • make the broth and freeze for a quick, no-time-to-cook dinner
  • use broth as the base for your sauces
  • add bone broth in place of water when making any soup
  • drop a raw egg into a cooked broth to make a perfect egg-drop soup
  • use bone broth instead of water when sautéing your meat
  • make the bone broth and freeze it in a bigger ice cube box to have it ready

How to make homemade keto bone broth in an Instant Pot

As I have already experienced, making a bone broth is the easiest, healthiest, and fastest way possible. You use one pot for Sautéing the bones, adding veggies, water, and all, and cooking it all in 2 hours. 

There is nothing easier or faster to achieving the best gelatinous bone broth than using your Instant Pot.

And if you do not own one, I would greatly suggest purchasing one because that is one gadget that helps you prepare the perfect meals in no time. And as we all need recipes, which are the easiest and fastest to make, Instant Pot is there to help you to get there.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Beef or chicken broth uses

Once your broth is ready, you can store it for many uses.

Bone broth may be used in our recipes such as:

How to achieve the jelly texture in Bone Broth?

Less water, more bones, and longer cooking time will help you achieve the best gelatinous structure once cooled down. Also, when making a chicken version of the broth, the feet of the chicken contains the most collagen and helps dearly.

How to store homemade bone broth?

Once you make your broth, let it cool. I suggest running the whole broth through a sieve with a muslin cloth to get the most transparent broth possible. You can store it in the fridge for up to 4-5 days and use it as needed.

I usually place it into a mason jar, which gives me the perfect portions, I need. 

What about the fat in the soup?

Once the soup is cooled and set in the fridge, which usually takes about 24 hours, you will realize on top of it, a white film substance hardens. That is fat, which has been cooled and formed together. It depends on whether you want to incorporate it into your dish once heated up or take it out.

I usually just take it out and not use it. Once it is cooled, it is much easier to get rid of the fat since it is in pieces. Placing a tissue on top of the pot will help you catch even the tiny bits of fat if that is what you aim for. 

Where to buy keto bone broth?

Those days, you can buy bone broth already ready-made from various companies. When deciding, please check the ingredients they use because not all of them are in a low carb diet section.

You can try Kettle and Fire Keto Soup or Dr. Kellyann’s Bone Broth collagen powdered packets from a pure grass-fed collagen bone broth. 

Can you freeze Bone Broth?

You can freeze the bone broth, which I do most of the time. As already mentioned, I separate the broth into Mason Jars. Leave it open on a kitchen desk to cool down.

Several recipes involve boiling the bones (which is sauté selection in the instant pot), but then baking the bones on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 350°-400°, turn bones over and baking again for 15 minutes before placing the bones back in the instant pot and pressure cooking for 2 hours. Is there a reason the step of baking in the oven was skipped? Thanks!

Zuzana

Tuesday 23rd of June 2020

Dear Vicky, To sauté the bones in an Instant Pot is similar to baking them in the oven. You cook them in the water, which happens after you saute them and add liquid to cook the soup.

what can I use to replace the kohlrabi that is not something I can get here in small town west Texas . Thank you

Zuzana

Tuesday 9th of June 2020

Dear Haley,

You can entirely skip it or add any other root vegetable. Except for Potatoes of course :). For Bone Broth I add all of the root veggies I have. Each gives an additional flavor to the broth.

What kind of beef bones could I use? Beef neck bones would they work?

Zuzana

Saturday 25th of April 2020

The best is to use a mix of different bonesThose knuckle and neck bones have a lot of collagen, which gives the broth body and rich flavor.
