Nourishing Bone Broth Recipe

Homemade-Chicken-Broth

Bone broth is amazing for your body. Especially while you are healing your gut. Simmering bones causes bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine that have the power to transform your health. Bone broth protects joints, helps heal leaky gut, helps maintain healthy skin, supports immune function, and detoxifies the body. You can sip it like tea or have it like a meal and give your body a break from solid foods. Just be careful if you have histamine intolerance as you could be sensitive to it. 

Tips:

* Save your veggie scraps when you cook and freeze them to make broth later

*Use all organic vegetables if possible

Ingredients

  • 4 LBS of grass fed beef bones (available at whole foods)
  • ½ bunch of chopped celery
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb, chopped
  • 4 large, carrots chopped
  • 1 TBSP tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 whole head of garlic sliced
  • 1 bunch of herb stems (I like parsley but you can use anything)
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • splash of apple cider vinegar
  • Himalayan salt or sea salt to taste

Directions

  1. Roast the bones on a baking sheet in the oven at 450 for 30 minutes.
  2. Roast carrots, celery, fennel and onion for 10 min
  3. Put tomato paste over the bones and veggies and roast for 5 more min
  4. Cool
  5. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat and cook garlic until its golden, 5 min
  6. Strain oil into a bowl and set garlic aside
  7. Transfer bones and veggies to a large pot and pour enough cold water in to cover it, and then add the apple cider vinegar
  8. Add herb stems, bay leaves, peppercorns, coriander, salt and garlic
  9. Bring to a boil over medium heat
  10. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 12-48 hours (periodically skim off the fat and foam that comes to the surface, these are impurities) 
  11. Let cool and pour into mason jars for storage
  12. Freeze or sip over a few days

This recipe is candida safe, refined sugar free, gluten free, and paleo. If you omit the onions, and garlic, it is safe for a low FODMAP diet.
