This Hamburger Macaroni Soup is a soul-soothing way to end the day with a hearty meal. It’s full of healthy grass-fed beef, vegetables, healing bone broth, and cassava flour noodles. It’s quick to make and incredibly comforting. Serve it along with my AIP and Paleo Pesto Pizza (sliced into breadsticks) for a meal your whole family will love.

Is this soup healthy?

Everything from the vegetables to the Beef Collagen Bone Broth makes this Beef and Macaroni Soup incredibly healing. Let’s look at some of the healthy ingredients in this soup recipe.

Cassava Elbow Noodles

When Jovial came out with a noodle that’s perfect for The Myers Way®, I had to try it! It’s completely gluten- and grain-free, with just two ingredients – organic cassava flour and water! 

These dried noodles cook up just like regular pasta — without all the gut-harming, gluten-containing ingredients.

Bone Broth Collagen

Just like homemade bone broth, my Beef Collagen Bone Broth powder is rich in vitamins, minerals, and gut-healing collagen and gelatin. Bone broth is a healing superfood. It supports essential body functions by providing you with the nutrients needed to heal the gut — not to mention all the other all the muscles in your body! 

I advocate everyone includes bone broth as a part of a healthy diet to help reverse leaky gut. Make your own at home, or press the easy button by using my Beef Collagen Bone Broth powder!

Onion, Parsnips, Carrots, and Celery

My Hamburger Macaroni Soup is slightly different from the version you might have had growing up. Yet, you won’t be sacrificing flavor. While I kept the traditional vegetables like onions, carrots, and celery, I swapped potatoes for parsnips to make this soup free of pro-inflammatory nightshade vegetables.

How to make Hamburger Macaroni Soup

You’ll find this Hamburger Macaroni Soup is so easy to make! Start by browning the onions slightly before adding the raw ground beef and salt to your pot. By browning your onions, you’ll add a lot of flavor! Then, add all the remaining ingredients except the noodles when the onions and beef are both completely cooked through. Stir well to completely dissolve the Beef Collagen Bone Broth.

Bring the soup to a boil, and add the noodles. Then, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 12-15 minutes until the noodles are soft. Remove the pot from your stovetop, carefully dish into bowls, and serve.

Can you eat pasta on an AIP diet?

Conventional pasta is not The Myers Way® or AIP approved. However, I can vouch for grain-free pasta! You might be able to find this pasta at your local grocery store (they carry it in Sprouts), or you can order it online from Thrive Market.

Pro-Tips:

  • You’ll want to eat cassava flour noodles immediately after cooking. While the flavor doesn’t change, they tend to lose their shape when reheating. 
  • Garnish with your favorite fresh herbs to add additional flavor and nutrients to your dish.
  • If you don’t mind shapeless pasta (it still tastes great!), store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. To reheat, add leftover soup to a pot and heat through on the stovetop, or in a covered dish in the microwave.
