Easy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth and 10-Minute Wonder

Hungry? Would you like a bowl of creamy and delicious soup? Well, I invite you to be a chef. But don’t worry. I have a few easy quick soup recipes which even a person who never cooks can master. Ready?

First, we need bone broth. It will be our soup base. Why? Because of beef and chicken bone broth health benefits!

Are you vegetarian or a vegan? I am sure you have veggie broth in the fridge.

Well, now what?

We will not be making or cooking soup. Let’s think outside the “pot!”

So, we will be improvising and “constructing” the soup. Yes! You heard me right—“constructing” like a Lego toy.

The main key point: we want to preserve the vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from all the amazing seasonal vegetables.

How will we do it?

Two methods:

  1. We will “soak” vegetables in the heated broth for a few minutes.
  2. We will use Vitamix and the power of its motor.

So, shall we begin?

Easy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth And Ten Minute Wonder

1. Raw Vegetable Soup with Kelp

Are you curious about the “construction” of the soup?

I have been doing it for 15 years, and often I use ingredients that most people don’t.

Well, do you enjoy sea vegetables? Do you know why are they so powerful?

The answer is IODINE.

Your body needs it to support a healthy thyroid, high energy level, assure superior metabolism, and hydrate your skin.

So, here comes my first recipe.

Raw Vegetable Soup with Kelp

Ingredients per 1-serving

      • raw organic sauerkraut – 1 hipping tablespoon
      • 2 medium cremini mushroomsEasy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth and 10-Minute Wonder
      • 2 flowers of cauliflower
      • 5 leaves of dill or parsley
      • ½ medium size tomato
      • few pieces of kelp
      • 1 garlic clove
      • 1 cup (8oz) Kettle & Fire bone broth 

How To

Step 1. Put a little broth in your pot to cover the bottom. Heat the broth, place sliced garlic in and sauté for a few minutes stirring occasionally.

Step 2. Add finely chopped tomato and sauté garlic and tomato for 2-3 minutes. Turn the fire off.

Step 3. Pour in the pot the main portion of heated bone broth. Stir everything.

Step 4. Add all raw ingredients—sauerkraut, mushrooms, cauliflower, chopped dill, and kelp. Cover the soup pot and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Step 5. Stir together once more and pour into a bowl. Dress up with parsley leaves and slices of lemon. Yummy!


      • If you don’t like floating sea vegetables in your soup, you can remove kelp. Or chop it in small pieces and put them into the pot.


First, with bone broth, you will get amino acids, protein, and collagen. Second, you will nourish your body with iodine, iron, riboflavin, vitamin B6, B12, and magnesium.

Besides, cauliflower and mushrooms supply fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and selenium.

2. Flax Raw Veggie Puree Soup – Part 1

Care for small kids or elder person?

My next 10-minute masterpiece among my easy and quick soup recipes is raw vegetable soup. It has all “live” vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Therefore, it’s great for people with digestive problems or a person who is ill.

As an option, use raw garlic on a side and organic flax crackers with homemade hummus. It is if you don’t want to use crackers in the soup. Or, you can do both.

Well, with this recipe you can improvise any way you like.

What you need:

  1. Bone broth (grass-fed and grass-finished). Try Kettle & Fire.
  2. Vitamix
  3. Organic vegetables
  4. Flax Crackers (We prefer Curt’s Classic raw crackers – Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Flax Raw Veggie Puree Soup

3. Veggie Raw Soup – Part 2

Well, don’t be scared that the ingredients list is long. Just look at the picture above. In fact, the steps of how-to are easy.

How To

Step 1. Put all ingredients as listed (except crackers, olives, and jalapeno) into the Vitamix. Secure the lid. Select VARIABLE mode, put the machine on Speed 1 and switch quickly to Speed 10. Now go to HIGH mode.

Step 2. Run Vitamix for 4 minutes or until steam starts getting out.

Step 3. Change to Speed 2, open the lid and add flax crackers, olives, and jalapeno. Run machine only for 10 seconds.

Step 4. Serve immediately!


      • If you don’t have flax crackers, use the “healthiest” crackers you can find.
      • Jalapeno assures the “wow” effect but if you don’t care for it, just skip it.
      • You can also use any type of mushroom if you care for it. Cremini is my choice.
      • Even though it is a long list of ingredients, I can “cook” this soup with my eyes closed. It is all about practice.
      • If you have your favorite seasoning, go ahead and be creative!

Do you see how fluffy it is?

Well, thanks to the Vitamix!

Don’t have one?

==> Read my review, “Should I Buy Vitamix?”


In addition to amino acids and collagen from the bone broth, you will get a high dosage of vitamin A, as well as vitamin C, calcium, iron, and potassium.


Also, flaxseed contains fiber and omega-3 fatty acids which reduce inflammation in the arteries and support good heart health.

So, enjoy!

4. Classic Raw Carrot Soup

Like the carrot soup? Who doesn’t!

And it is next on my list of easy and quick soup recipes.

For me, I love it with the twist. To kick the taste, I use ginger. Also, for a runch, raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds is a fantastic option. But if this soup is for the elderly person, you can pre-soak pumpkin seeds for a few hours.

With this in mind, a few words of wisdom: commercial carrot soups have SUGAR (!) and that is why they are pleasantly sweet. For us, we DO NOT USE SUGAR. Therefore don’t be surprised that your orange creation will be a little different.

Raw Carrot SoupEasy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth and 10-Minute Wonder

Ingredients per 1-serving

  • 1 cup of heated organic beef or chicken bone broth
  • 3 medium carrots cut in few pieces each
  • 1 slice of onion
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 slice of ginger
  • 2 tablespoons almond or coconut milk
  • For garnish: parsley, cilantro or dill, a splash of lemon, a teaspoon of plain yogurt

How To

Step 1. Put all ingredients as listed into the Vitamix. Secure the lid. Next, select VARIABLE mode and put the machine on Speed 1. Then switch quickly to Speed 10. Now go to HIGH mode.

Step 2. Like in a prior recipe, run Vitamix for 4 minutes till soup is smooth.

Step 3. Garnish with parsley, cilantro or dill, and add pumpkin seeds. Also, I love a splash of freshly squeezed lemon for the extra “kick.”

So, don’t procrastinate – get chunks of carrots and get your Vitamix to work.

I hope you love it!


      •  Remember, the carrot is a very dense vegetable. Add more broth or milk if it is not liquid enough. It’s up to you.


It is important to point out that ten minutes of “labor” blending your raw carrot soup will yield superb return, mainly because of carrots and ginger.

Carrots are a godsend transporter of beta carotene—essential antioxidant for healthy skin, good vision and boosting your immune system.

What does ginger do?

It might help with inflammation and improve digestion.

And even if you don’t cook, no problems! Take the first step and learn my quick and easy soup recipes.

Is your health worth it?


“Wow,” you can say, “these are neat cooking ninja tricks.”

They sure are!

Well, aren’t you glad you have started your soup mastery?

I hope you love those easy and quick soup recipes, and I welcome you to continue practicing your “cooking.” As a result, in no time you will be the SUPER CHEF!

Also, don’t forget about using top-quality bone broth and Vitamix!

These are your best friends. Use them to create quick masterpieces and get all vitamins and minerals from fresh herbs and veggies.

In the end, please join me at the dinner table and in my victory dance—after the meal, of course,—celebrating the art of cooking and giving.

Well, now you know: if you don’t have time but want a homemade dish, give me ten minutes and I will give you THE SOUP!

Use my quick easy soup recipes to create those culinary wonders. They are nutritious and yummy.

In summary, inspire your inner chef, cook with love, and bring soul to those soups. Did I forget a what-the-hell attitude?

Happy Cooking!

  • Love this post. I am a lover of soup and I am always looking for new ways to make more exciting soups. This is exactly what I need as I have been getting sick of my same old soup recipes and need to try something new.

    I am definitely going to try your sea vegetable suggestion, as not only is it healthy, it also looks delicious and different. The pictures you have supplied are so appetizing I wish I could just try it right off the website instead of still having to go and make it.

    • Hi, Michel!

      You gave me an idea: should I just make those amazing soups, freeze them and sell? Ha-Ha-Ha!

      Anyways, I have been making “quick” soups for a long time and always try to improvise. And they come out a little different all the time which makes the whole experience so fun!

      Thank you for your nice comment about “appetizing” pictures. As a professional chef, my mom taught me well about the importance of food presentation. Digestion starts with visual! Even when we were kids, I and my brother refused to eat if it didn’t look “pretty.”

      Well, other than all great health benefits, what is great about those recipes – it is so easy and quick to make!

      I am a busy executive but I cook all the time. Now you know my ninja tricks.

      Bon Appetit!

  • Excellent post again from you and surely, I found this piece very interesting to read on too. The soup recipes you have given simply looks tasty and tempting though I’ve never tried a bone broth soup before however, I got some ordered already and would be delivered this night. I might as well give this broth a try tonight especially the carrot soup since I have all the other ingredients at home. Thanks

    • Hi, RoDarrick!

      I am so glad you read it. Thank you very much.

      When you make your “own” soup, try to play with ingredients to get it to the point that you love it. You might want to remove some herbs or, ginger, for example. Some people I know for a fact(!) cannot handle ginger. Again, it is a matter of practicing and stick with what you like the most.

      I have been making bone broth soups for so long already that I can do it in my sleep. On the first try, just please be patient and – PRACTICE!

      Bon Appetit!

  • Soup!  Seriously one of my favorite things to cook because it is so easy to do and filled with so many vitamins and minerals.  Although I am not a vegetarian, there are times that I like the detoxifying effects of a simple vegetable soup.
    I make my own bone broth as well.  I always save the juice from a roasted chicken or beef roast.  I throw it into a plastic container and into the freezer it goes for the next time I want to make soup!

    • Hello!

      Looks like you have everything under control. Good for you!

      Often I also stick with vegetable-only dishes even though I am not a vegetarian or vegan. I like balance and protein I am getting from bone broth is an adequate amount for my body. That is why I don’t need to eat meat every day.

      Like you, I throw leftovers in a freezer–but NOT(!) IN PLASTIC. Next time around I take exactly how much I need and voila! Dinner or lunch is ready.

      OK. Thank you for sharing. I sincerely appreciate it.


  • I like your approach to making soup — constructing sounds more fun than cooking. 🙂 The soups you have constructed look beautiful. Kelp is not something I enjoy as it usually upsets my stomach, so I may have to look into leaving that out or using the chop up method you recommend. I think I’ll start with the flax soup, as that one has the most personal appeal and won’t require shopping for extra ingredients! Thanks for sharing!

    • Dear Aly!

      Absolutely. If kelp upsets your stomach, just leave it out. But, again, if you can cut it in small pieces, it would be great since it has so much iodine! 

      Or, there is another trick might work for you: soak kelp or any other sea vegetables in a separate bowl and then use just a kelp “liquid” to add to the soup. Maybe this can work. Please let me know. 

      As for flax soup, ideally is to add a little jalapeno for a kick but now I am thinking: does jalapeno upset your stomach as well? If yes, use any herbs or spices you know and love. There is so much flexibility in those recipes. Also, you can adjust the consistency of the soup to YOUR liking! 

      Well, Bon Appetit!

  • Hi Ella, these are some scrumptious looking soup recipes (I’m so glad you included pictures of the finished and very pretty meals!) My husband and I love to be creative with soups and stews and this gives us the perfect reference for doing just that; especially knowing that the soup we are creating is so nutritious and yummy.

    I love the idea of preserving the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes of the veggies so we can ingest the ‘living’ nutrients while enjoying the deliciousness of these healthy soups. We don’t have a Vitamix yet but we will definitely be getting one! Thanks for sharing!


    • Hi, Sue!

      I am so glad you and your husband are both into it. Eating all “live” vitamins is my #1 priority and that is why I don’t “cook” in a traditional way as other people do. Of course, there are some exceptions.

      Also, “constructing” soups are so easy and quick that it makes me smile all the time since lunch takes only 10 minutes! What can be simpler than this? 

      I love home-made dishes but don’t want to slave at the stove. That is why I love my Vitamix which I have for 15 years. So, I am a very experienced Vitamix user. Please read my post “Blender with a Juicer. Should I buy Vitamix?”

      Please stay tuned. I would love to chat more.

      Have a great soup!

  • Hi Ella – Well this is some variety!  The carrot soup is my favorite along with the raw vegetable. Where can you purchase the bone broth? The photos look inviting even in this hot weather we’re having!  I’ll book mark this post for the fall/winter season.  Till then…

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Hi, Nathaniel!

      Please Click Here to get your bone broth. 

      If you don’t make hot soup now because it’s summer, just drink the broth as a tea. Regardless of the season, we need our amino acids, don’t we?

      Yes, come back to this page when it is cooler. You will love making those amazing soups.

      I grew up in a cold climate and we had been eating soups year-round. During summer though, very often my mom made cold soups. I guess I should share her wisdom. Good idea!

      Well, thank you, dear Nathaniel, for your sweet comment. And don’t forget to get your bone broth!

      Happy Sipping!

  • Hi Ella,

    A page that is aimed at making veggie soup is right up my alley!

    I love, in the colder months, to make a big pot of veggie soup and then enjoy it for the week ahead. I rarely use a recipe, but just use what is on hand in the frig and keep adding veggies and herbs until I end up with nature’s goodness in a bowl 😉

    I haven’t thought of using a Vitamix to blend them all together, but that sounds good too! I’ve always gone with the chunky style. I’m going to look into this option!

    • Hi, Tom!

      It is very smart to use whatever you have in a frig. Good for you! In this case, you don’t have to think twice that some ingredients are missing. Right?

      I do the same but most of the stuff for those soups I almost always have as staples in my kitchen anyway. Why? Even not being a vegetarian, I eat an enormous amount of veggies, mostly RAW! Per se, I DO NOT cook my vegetables. 

      I do suggest strongly to make an investment and get the Vitamix. Please read my post “Blender with a Juicer. Should I Buy Vitamix?”

      Thank you for sharing. I sincerely appreciate it.


  • Wow you have some amazing recipes here. I am glad I have the vitamix blender too, so I can try them out right away. I keep hearing about how amazing Kettle and Fire is, so will have to try it out to see how good it is. Thank you for providing the information to make soups that hold the highest standard of nutritional value as well.

    • Hi, Cliff!

      That is exactly the name of the game – “highest standard of nutritional value.”

      I try to eat raw as much as I can precisely of that reason. But since some veggies have strong cellulose, Vitamix comes very handy and does a trick. So, use Vitamix and get that fantastic broth. 

      Thank you very much and stay healthy!

  • Hi Ella,
    Thank you for sharing this great informational article about soup recipes. Your post is very important. I really learnt great ideas from it, personally. I like your approach to making soup. I’m so glad you included pictures of the finished and very pretty meals. I want I’ll start with the flax soup. I am bookmarking your article to share with friends.

    • Hi, dear Mim!

      Thank you for visiting. I am so glad you like my approach. Seriously, how else you can preserve all vitamins and minerals? Chaw all the time raw? And it’s quick. I mean it. Yesterday after work I made my delicious flax soup like 1-2-3. Haven!

      Another thing – your tammy will be so happy, and it will help with digestion. And since it is perfect for digestion, it helps to better detox. You see, no matter how you slice it up, it is FANTASTIC! Love it.

      Yes, spread the word and share with your friends.

      Kind regards!

  • I love the recepees . They are really very easy and very beneficial for every one looking ti detox his body.
    It is so good for the winters because one makes a great soup for dinner and at the same time detoxes his body.
    We eat so much junk foods and additives every day and it is only logical to detox a few times a year/

    • Hello, Bijan!

      Thank you so much for your time. I sincerely appreciate it.

      Yes, it is very easy and quick – that is a genius of those recipes. We all are busy people and cannot “afford” to spend too much time in the kitchen. And here those soups come handy.

      Another big benefit, of course, is eating raw veggies and getting all live vitamins and enzymes.

      I love those soups year-round and feel terrific. You are absolutely correct: intestines and liver are parts of our natural body detox system. So if digestion work great, so body detox better. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t connect all those dots.

      Anyways, have a great day and stay tuned. Love chatting with you!

      Kind regards

  • Your article has encouraged me to be a chef! All of my life, I have lived a life of not having to cook my own food but rather just dine in restaurants or fast food due to my very busy schedules. But just recently, with the prospect of getting married, I got an interest in learning how to cook food. And not just cook food but cook healthy food. I will try follow the recipe you have shared here and may try purchasing myself my own Vitamix!

    By the way, I’d like to ask about the bone broth to be used. Can I use actual bones and not just “ready made bone both” that are sold in stores?

    • Hi, dear Gomer!

      Congratulation on a potential change of your status as a single person. It is awesome!

      Well, my favorite phrase: WITH THE TITLE COME SPECIFIC OBLIGATIONS. Meals together and keep your loved ones healthy is one of them. And it’s also FUN eating together when you add into the dish your love and soul.

      I am sure being married will not make you less busy. Those recipes are exactly for busy people. Trust me, I love to cook but very limited on time. So, instead of compromising and eat processed food or restaurant cooking, I stick with proved and quick to make dishes. And it works wonders for me!

      I encourage you to start compiling your favorite family recipes which you can rotate based on what’s in season, your mood, your taste buds, and, of course, what is in the fridge. It will make your life easier and cooking more enjoyable.

      As for using actual bones, of course! If you can find quality grass-fed and grass-finished kettle bones and/or organic and pasture-raised chicken bones, – got for it. But remember, making bone broth is a lengthy procedure. So, use the Instant Pot as I do when I managed to find bones I want. Or, again, I buy my favorite and fantastic Kettle & Fire.

      My best wishes to you and your bride!

  • Good afternoon, wow, I love your recipes. I was a vegetarian for 8 years, I’m not anymore, I woke up one morning wanting a stake got myself a porterhouse. That was the end of me being a vegetarian, however I still use a lot of vegetables. I find your recipes excited, and I will be using a couple of those that you recommended. However, I have a question for you, I love garlic I put it on everything that I eat, what is your thoughts on adding garlic to the recipes that you have recommended. I thank you by the way for the exciting recipes that you have Given.

    • Hi, Earl!

      Music to my ears!

      I also used to be a vegetarian but after a few years, I switched back. It had nothing to do with wanting a stake, even though I understand how you felt. It was my low hemoglobin and red blood cells count. No matter what I did and how much raw spinach I ate, my body told me to STOP! So, I did and very happy with my choice.

      I still eat lots of veggies daily and prefer them raw but with the twist – now you know why!

      Believe it or not, I am also a “GARLIC” person since I was a kid. I grew up on garlic and also ate it daily. Two of my recipes actually have raw garlic among the ingredients – veggie soup with kelp and flax raw veggies soup. Please look again. Of course, you can adjust the amount to your liking.

      But do you know what I love? I love those soups with flax raw organic crackers on a side with raw garlic.

      Well, EASY-BREEZY.

      Please enjoy and Bon Appetit!

  • Hi Ella! What a great website you have! There’s a lot of important and helpful information here. All of the soups in this post look and sound delicious. Since I like to juice carrots with apples, celery, and ginger, your raw carrot and ginger recipe sounds perfect start. It’s awesome that such healthy soups can be done so easily and quickly. I’m bookmarking your site so I can return often. Thank you for sharing what you’ve learned on your journey of detoxing from toxic things and beating cancer! Yay!  🙂

    • Dear Colleen!

      It is so sweet of you. I sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm and words of praise and recognition. Thank you very much.

      Like you, I am also big on green shake and juices. You might find helpful my post “What Is Detox Smoothie? Who, Why and How.” I would love to know what you think.

      Yes, since you use ginger, carrot ginger soup is a perfect starter for you. Again, please adjust it to your liking since we all different. Another ninja-trick: if you want more “heavy” consistency, one of the options is to add a teaspoon of organic almond flour. 

      Well, let’s call my recipe an “open source” Ella’s carrot soup! Ha-Ha-Ha
