BONE BROTH BASE SOUP WITH VEGETABLES
- good quality bones from pasture-raised animals—beef, chicken, fish head. Even chicken feet since they have a lot of collagen (get as many as it fits inside the pot)
- a splash of apple cider vinegar
- a pinch of Celtic or Himalayan sea salt
- water to cover all the bones to the max limit on a crockpot or pot.
- 1 bunch of organic asparagus and 1 whole organic purple onion (you can use any vegetables you like)
Start by cooking the broth-stews for short periods. For example, cook fish and chicken for 2 hours and beef, lamb, etc. for 2 to 4 hours. With time, you can start increasing the broth ́s cooking time.
*For people that can tolerate food cooked for a long time, the broth can be slow-cooked for over 24 hours or until the bone gets soft.
For bone broth slow cooker or stovetop:
Add all the bones, chicken feet, or fish. Add water to maximum level on the pot. Add salt and vinegar, cover, and simmer for 20 hours on a low setting. If using a stovetop, then cook for same amount of time.
Once the broth is ready, add vegetables to make a cream consistency/
Cook the asparagus in the oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes with ghee. Add onion cut in a few pieces to the broth and warm it up until translucent. Then add both vegetables to the Vitamix or blender, salt to taste, and enjoy.
Bone broth can also be drunk without adding any vegetables.
*Make a big pot of broth, let it cool down, and store it in glass containers, or mason jars. Refrigerate for later use.
