How To Make A High-Protein Soup

Making a high-protein soup is a simple and satisfying process. Here’s a basic guide to help you create your protein-packed bowl of goodness:


  • Protein Source: Choose a lean protein source such as chicken, turkey, beef, tofu, or legumes (lentils, chickpeas, or beans).
  • Vegetables: Include a variety of colorful vegetables for added nutrients. Options like carrots, celery, onions, bell peppers, and leafy greens work well.
  • Whole Grains (Optional): Add whole grains like quinoa, barley, or brown rice for extra texture and protein.
  • Broth: Use a high-quality broth as the base. Options include chicken, beef, vegetable, or bone broth.
  • Herbs and Spices: Add flavor with herbs like thyme, rosemary, or basil and spices such as cumin, paprika, or turmeric.


  • Prep Ingredients: Chop vegetables and protein into bite-sized pieces. Rinse and drain legumes or grains if using.
  • Sauté Aromatics: Heat a small amount of oil in a large pot.
  • Sauté onions, garlic, and other aromatic vegetables until softened.
  • Add Protein: Add your chosen protein source and cook until it’s no longer pink (for meat) or until it’s slightly browned.
  • Vegetables and Grains: Stir in the chopped vegetables and grains, if using, and cook for a few minutes.
  • Broth: Pour in the broth to cover all ingredients. Adjust the quantity based on your desired soup thickness.
  • Simmer: Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Let it cook until all ingredients are tender and flavors meld together.
  • Season: Season the soup with salt, pepper, and herbs and spices. Taste and adjust as needed.
  • Serve: Pour the hot, protein-packed soup into bowls.

How To Add More Protein In Your Soup

Adding more protein to your soup is simple and can enhance both the nutritional content and flavor. Here are some great ways to increase the protein in your soup:

Choose Protein-Rich Ingredients:

  • Opt for lean meats such as chicken, turkey, beef, or pork as your primary protein source.
  • Include fatty fish like salmon or mackerel, which add protein and contribute healthy fats.
  • Add shellfish such as shrimp or crab for a seafood protein boost.
  • Consider using ground meats or sausages with high protein content.

Incorporate Low-Carb Vegetables:

  • Choose low-carb vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, or zucchini, which provide additional protein while keeping the carb count low.
  • Bell peppers, onions, and garlic also add flavor and a touch of protein.

Include High-Fat Dairy:

  • Use full-fat dairy products like heavy cream, cream cheese, or sour cream to add richness and a protein boost to creamy soups.
  • Grate or melt high-fat cheese into your soup for added protein and flavor.

Bone Broth Base:

  • Use bone broth as the base for your soup. It not only adds depth to the flavor but also provides collagen and additional protein.
