The weather is getting colder, and it is once again time for deeply nourishing soups. Need some inspiration? Here are 50+ Healthy Soup Recipes from my friends from around the blogosphere.
Before we get into the recipes, let’s talk a bit about broth. Real homemade bone broth is the backbone of my kitchen in the cold winter months. My crock pot is working overtime on many days, simmering bones into a healing elixir to nourish and feed us. There is no substitute for real, homemade bone broth.
The knowledge about the magic of bone broths was once passed down over many generations and was basic common knowledge in households. Sadly, with the introduction of the modern diet with it’s “convenient” fast foods, the use of this amazing elixir has vanished for the stove top.
Almost every culture throughout history has used bone broth for nutritional benefits and added flavor. “Jewish penicillin” in the form of chicken soup is used to fight colds and decrease inflammation. Chinese medicine uses bone broths to build the blood, support digestion, and nourish the kidneys. And since the Victorian Era, the English have sipped beef broth, or beef tea.
Real bone broth is simply homemade stock from animal bones simmered in water for hours or days. Chicken, beef, pig, fish, turkey, or any animal of your choice will do. The idea is that the longer you cook it, the more nutritious the broth is. Apple cider vinegar can be added to help pull the nutrients out of the bones. After cooking down the bones and connective tissue, what you are left with in the end is a true SUPER FOOD that has amazing healing effects on the body. Not only is this a very cost effective way to make medicine, but it is far superior to any supplements you can buy.
Read more HERE about the awesome benefits of real bone broth. See my Easy Chicken Bone Broth Recipe. I also like to make beef bone broth my roasting the bones at 425’F for 25-30 minutes, until browned. Simmer in crock pot for 24-48 hours. You can make stock on the stove top as well.
OK, now on to those delicious recipes. Hope you enjoy. Have a warm and cozy week!
