Healthy and delicious single serving bone broth soups [3 different flavors]

Hey friends! How’s the week going? Hope that everything is going well for you. We are doing the usual fun rotation of swim lessons, gymnastics, training, playing, errand-ing, you know how it goes. It’s nice to fall into a somewhat routine again, and nice to be back on the meal prep train.

We were a little bit delayed this week, since I didn’t end up prepping until Monday instead of the usual Sunday. Better late than never, right??


(Cooking chicken in the Instant Pot)

We’ve been hit with a cloudy and cooler spell -it’s beautiful!- so I knew that soup had to be somewhere on the menu. I love making a giant batch of soup to last the week, especially because the girls go crazy for it, but usually by day 3, I’m kind of *over* eating the same combo.

The answer:

Create different base combos, 

store in the fridge, 


and when you’re ready to eat, add hot bone broth,

sprinkle toppings,

and serve.

There’s nothing cozier than curling up on the couch with a mug of veggie, chicken, and herb-packed soup. It’s also kind of exciting to have a different flavor to look forward to each time.

The funny thing about this post is that they aren’t really *recipes*. It’s just like “here are some things that are good with bone broth” but I thought it was exciting because I mostly enjoy bone broth by itself. I love it warmed in a mug, and will occasionally get crazy and add it to Instant Pot dishes and sauces. It never really dawned on me to use it in single-serving soups. You know, use it like BROTH.

I promise I used to be smart, but when I had kids, I birthed my brain. I’m still hoping for it to return. 

Chicken and veggie bone broth soup in a jar [3 different flavors]

Farmer’s garden:

Cooked chicken (cut into bite-sized pieces)

Roasted veggies (any combo you love! I did the usual zucchini, onion, carrots, celery, and sweet potato)

Fresh herbs: thyme, rosemary, basil

Healthy homemade single serving bone broth soups

Wannabe pho:

Thin-sliced, cooked chicken

Rice noodles


Toppings (after serving): basil, lime juice, sliced fresh jalapeños, scallions

Chicken tortilla:

Shredded cooked chicken

1 heaping tablespoon of your favorite salsa

Before serving, add tortilla chips and the chicken to the bowl, and top with hot bone broth.

Toppings: avocado, fresh lime juice, cilantro

To make your combos, place as much of each ingredient into each jar or container, then seal and store in the fridge. 

When you’re ready to eat:

dump the contents of a jar into your serving bowl,

heat up your bone broth (or regular chicken/veggie stock),

and pour on top. Add any extra seasonings, citrus, veggies or herbs.

Note: It’s fun to play with bone broth flavors, too. I used the Cranberry Sage in the Farmer’s Garden above, Savory Chicken in the chicken tortilla soup, and jalapeño beef in the pho.

These would also be AMAZING for packed work or school lunches. Just bring your jar, your bone broth, and toppings in a separate container. You’re ready to rock and roll.

So tell me, friends: what’s your all-time favorite soup recipe?? Feel free to link away! I always love trying new recipes.

    This post couldn’t have come at a better time! I made homemade bone broth and needed some ideas of how to turn it into a soup. Thanks Gina!

    Hi Gina! Since you’ve moved I feel like we haven’t been seeing as many of your meals on Snapchat and I always check it to see what new things you’re eating. I’m sure you’ve been crazy busy with the move but when things are more settled can you post little shots again on Snapchat of what you’re cooking for the family or your lunches and such? Also could you do a post on what your weekly grocery store shopping list looks like for everyone in your house? With my little one starting preschool and my husband working long hours I’m trying to get new ideas for what to pack for lunches and snacks. Thank you for always being so good with reader’s requests too!

    I just ordered Kettle and Fire’s new chicken bone broth and I am pretty pumped to try it! I am hoping my LO will drink it better than the beef.

    I love this idea! I am a huge soup fan, but my family is not as into it. I will have to try this. It looks like it could be a good wayto use up leftovers and odds and ends. Thanks.

      yes, it’s perfect for that!

    Yum! Totally saving this. I am a huge broth soup fan and I have a slow cooker, so I can actually do this!

    those 3 babies looks really delicious. That chicken tortilla looks interesting with avocado on a soup! The carrots combo looked very comforting and the wannabe pho really strikes my interest the most! I have lived in Thailand for a couple of years so yeah hehe thanks for this awesome comforting post G!
