Fish Soup with Cumin

Fish Soup with Cumin

Lately I’ve been getting pretty frustrated with trying to feed my kids. They’ve been avoiding their broth! When we first went on GAPS over a year ago they agreed to eat the soup and did grow to like it. But now that they are on the Full GAPS diet and doing fine, it’s easy for us to let the stock slide. The less they eat of it, the less they want. I can always get them to eat it by including tomatoes, but with Kid2’s joint issues I don’t like to feed him nightshades all the time even though he seems to tolerate them pretty well. We’ve also been struggling with keeping quick options on hand and ready to go, since both TinyHands and I are working full time now.

So this soup was a happy accident! It was really quick to make, and the kids ate it up! I didn’t take pictures last night, but I made myself a similar soup this morning and that’s what you’re seeing here.

Fish Soup



  1. Dice the onion and put it in the pot with a bit of stock, cumin, and salt over medium heat.
  2. Chop your carrots and add them and the rest of your stock to the pot when the onion starts to turn translucent.
  3. When the carrots start to get tender, put your fish in the soup. It’s fine if it is frozen when it goes in the soup, just expect to give it a little more time.
  4. Cover and simmer until the fish is flaky and opaque.
  5. Salt and season further to taste.


  • Use other vegetables. I used broccoli today.
  • Stir in coconut milk and lime juice when it is cooked.
