I know I have been sharing a lot of soup with you the last week or so, but today I wanted to share with you one of my pride and joys 🙂

This is one of the very first soups I made up from scratch all by myself. It has become one of our family staples, and one that I share with so many.

Spinach Lasagna Soup
After I had my first baby I quickly realized how nice it would have been to have some meals prepared beforehand…and also just how much nourishment the body needs to recover after having a baby!

I struggled with my recovery, and months down the road I vowed that I would never again let any woman that I personally knew go without a meal in her freezer before she had her baby. It was around that time that I started learning to cook from the Nourishing Traditions book, and I really fell in love with bone broth.

Spinach Lasagna Soup
I created this soup for a someone having a baby, and it has become something that good friends of mine know I will be bringing whether it is a baby coming (or baby loss – did you know those mommas need just as much, if not more help?), an illness or injury having them laid up, or going through a busy season. Full of nourishing bone broth, iron replenishing grassfed beef and spinach, and it just plain tastes amazing!

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs grassfed ground beef
  • 3 medium onions chopped
  • 8 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 – 15oz cans organic diced tomatoes
  • 4 quarts beef broth (Chicken broth works too. Homemade preferable for the most nourishment – see the Tips section for super simple slow cooker method to make it!)
  • 2 TB Italian seasoning
  • 1 – 16oz bag gluten free pasta
  • 1 lb fresh organic spinach
  • ½ cup organic grated parmesan cheese to stir in (optional – if you are dairy free it is just as good without this.)
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Brown the beef with the Italian seasoning in a little bit of friendly fat (butter, coconut oil, lard), in a big stock pot, and set aside – don’t drain the fat – that is major flavor!
  2. Add some friendly fat and the onions to the pot you just cooked the beef in. Saute them in the beef fat and butter with a pinch of salt to bring out their juices and sweeten. About 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  4. Add the stock, beef, and tomatoes and bring to a boil.
  5. Do not reduce to a simmer – add the noodles and boil in the stock until the pasta is cooked.
  6. Turn the heat down to low and add the spinach to wilt and cook through, and melt in the parmesan.
  7. Sea salt and pepper to taste.

Tips:

  • Here is how to make your own beef broth (or chicken broth!) – it is so worth the extra nourishment, and especially for a recovering new momma you just can’t beat it!
  • Double up and get it into the freezer for the school and work. This is my husband’s favorite soup, and he takes it along in his travel crockpot to warm up at his desk at work. You can see the thermoses we prefer for keeping soup warm for school lunchboxes here!
  • If you are prepping this for a friend you can either bring it over warmed for them to eat right away, or just freeze it up for them if you aren’t sure if they will need it soon. Most of the time nowadays I like to make and freeze a meal for a new momma to bring to her BEFORE she has her baby – that way she doesn’t need more people coming over while she is trying to get settled in with her new little one.
  • Here are the gluten free noodles I usually go for – they carry them at my local grocer for a great price, and the texture is fantastic – especially compared to many GF noodles. Shop around and see what you can find – just watch the ingredient list.

So talk to me! What is your go-to meal to bring to a new momma or someone in need?

    You referenced looking in the Tips section for a slow cooker method, but I don’t see it there. I assume the noodles would need to be added at the end (about 20 minutes prior to serving), or is it better to cook them according to the stovetop method and add just before serving?

    • Reply Renee Kohley February 4, 2015 at 12:01 pm

      Hi CJ – that comment was in regards to making the bone broth in the slow cooker – not the soup. It was a comment by the bone broth ingredient 🙂 I have not tried making this soup in the slow cooker. Hope that helps!

        LOL–Bummer! Yes, I have a fresh batch of stock just done in the slow cooker and was looking for a new recipe to try. Thanks!
