Easy Paleo Meatball Soup

Jump to recipe

I look forward to my mother’s famous homemade meatball soup every Halloween.  It’s been the tradition in our family for as long as I can remember to get together on Halloween and eat meatball soup, homemade bread, and pass out candy to trick-or-treaters.  So, in honor of one of my favorite holidays coming up, I want to share with you this Easy Paleo Meatball Soup recipe. Paleo and Whole 30 Friendly Meatball SoupNow I must admit that I had never made this soup on my own before.   I’ve watched my mom make it for many years and ate plenty of bowls of it.   A few weeks ago I pulled out the family recipe book she gave me when I got married and looked at the recipe.   Not to knock my mom, but I was shocked by how simple it is.  All these years I was tricked into thinking she worked so hard on Halloween day to make a huge batch of this soup for all of us…Wrong.  It’s ridiculously easy that even Tracy could make this! Haha. (We all know she loves the kitchen)  Now my mother does also make some killer homemade bread to go with it so I’m not going to act like she doesn’t still work hard that day to cook us all great meal. 
My favorite paleo soup to date! This is so simple, and is even compliant with Whole30.

I was a very picky eater growing up.  I loved this soup, but I was repulsed by all the big onion and tomato chunks in it.  So, my mom would just give me a bowl of meatballs and broth and I was perfectly happy.  It’s funny how our palates change with age because I can’t get enough of the savory onions and tomatoes in this soup now. Super simple meatball soup for a fall weeknight meal. As you can see I have stepped up my food photography game.  I recently purchased a new camera and this is my first attempt using it.  Now I’m sure they will only improve but considering I had no idea what I was really doing and just went for it I think they turned out pretty fantastic! Now on to this simple recipe.  This recipe was not originally gluten free and paleo friendly but it only took a couple modifications to do so.

If you’re currently doing a Whole 30 you will have a hard time finding a beef broth that is compliant.  I looked at 2 grocery stores and didn’t see any that were sugar free or yeast free.  My suggests are:
1. You just use a chicken broth. I know Costco has a Whole 30 compliant broth and probably your typical grocery store does as well.
2. You make your own broth. I’ve never made my own beef broth but found this info here from
3. Order some here. It’s not cheap, but it was the only place I could find it online.

    Just made this – very good!! At first I thought it might be bland but after a simmering for a long time it reduced and was delicious! Thanks for a great Whole30 recipe!
