Healing Bowls: Turmeric Chicken & Sweet Potato Chowder

HealingBowlChicken&SweatPotato.JPG

If we have to start dealing with the cold, at least having this turmeric chicken and sweet potato chowder in our tummies will ease the blow. Sweet potatoes, sweet corn and spinach along with Bone Brewhouse bone broth make for a ton of flavour and nutrition. And, by using Bone Brewhouse bone broth you cut down time spent in the kitchen because we do most of the work for you. Our nutrient-rich bone broths are simmered in kettles for up to 24 hours using cage-free, Canadian chicken and all-natural seasonings. Unlike conventional broths and stocks, this extra-long process extracts collagen and minerals from deep within the bones that offer tremendous health benefits. 

For this recipe, all you need is:
1 pound of pre-cooked chicken, shredded
1 pound sweet potato, peeled and diced
2 1/2 cups frozen or canned sweet corn kernels
2 1/2 cups Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth
1 teaspoon turmeric

Add all ingredients to a large pot. Cover, bring to a boil and simmer till the sweet potatoes are soft. I then mashed the sweet potatoes for a thicker consistency (optional). Turn on the fireplace, wrap yourself in a blanket and enjoy!

Black Rice & Bone Broth

BlackRice.JPG

Black rice! Have you ever tried it? It’s a whole grain rice rich in B-vitamins and antioxidants. The colourful outer layer of black rice is actually a deep, eggplant-like purple created by compounds called anthocyanins, the same antioxidants that give grapes and blueberries their distinctive hue. Research has linked anthocyanins to a wide variety of health claims, including increased longevity, cardiovascular health, cancer prevention and dementia. 

For added nutrients, I cooked the black rice with 2 cups of bone broth for the first cup of rice, and a cup of water for each additional cup. Once cooked, I fluffed the rice with steamed spinach and served it with soft boiled eggs and beets. Enjoy! 

Bone Broth Butternut Squash Soup

The Bone Brewhouse bone broth adds a new layer of flavour to this butternut squash soup. Not to mention it instantly transforms the soup into a nutrient dense powerhouse deliciousness! 
Chop a small to medium butternut squash into 1 inch cubes and toss into a large pot. Add Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth, and water till the butternut squash is covered. Salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a boil and cook until the squash is soft. Use an immersion blender or a potato masher to fully puree the squash. Add seasonings: fresh thyme, green onion, optional diced carrots, potatoes or dumplings. And simmer for another 30 minutes. 

It’s as simple as that. Typically, I put some leftover soup into containers for lunch right away, to make the morning that much easier. This bone broth butternut squash soup is a simple dish with tons of flavour! Enjoy! 

Bone Broth Marinara Sauce

MarinaraSauce.JPG

I try my hardest to incorporate bone broth into as many of my meals as much as possible. Not only do I drink a mug every day. I also use it in any savoury recipes that calls for water. I steam vegetables with bone broth. I use it to make rice. I boil sweet potatoes in it. I have even poached eggs in bone broth! It makes me feel good knowing that I am adding more nutrients to my diet. 

This weekend, I was experimenting with a quick, homemade marinara sauce, without added sugar like most of the ones you can find in the store. Sugar is added to combat the acidity from the tomatoes, but grated carrots will do the same trick minus all that annoying sugar. The sauce was getting quite thick so I used bone broth to thin it out… and just like that, I had a bone broth marinara. 

Ingredients: 
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
3-5 garlic cloves, crushed
I cup onions, finely diced
1 cup of mushrooms, finely diced
1 cup of green peppers, finely diced
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
3 Tbsp tomato paste
1 cup Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth
¼ cup fresh basil leaves, torn
1 tsp dried oregano, 1 tsp sea salt, ½ tsp pepper (season to taste)
1 tsp crushed red peppers (optional)
⅛ cup grated carrot

Heat a medium sauce pan on medium heat and add olive oil, warm for 1 minute. Add garlic, onions, mushrooms and green peppers, sauté till fragrant. Add the remaining ingredients, simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Blend for 1 minute with an immersion blender or carefully transfer to a blender (optional). Add additional salt and pepper or meatballs!! Enjoy!

Bone Broth Risotto

Risotto.JPG

Celebrate that special man in your life with a healthy bone broth risotto. I doesn’t get any better than that! Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

5 cups Bone Brewhouse Traditional Broth
olive oil
1 large leek, dark green woody stalks removed, thoroughly wash before finely chopping
2 cups sliced mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups risotto rice (Arborio)
Juice + zest of ½ a lemon
Asparagus, woody stems removed and cut into 2 inch pieces

Place Bone Brewhouse Traditional broth in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. meanwhile, in a large saucepan sauté mushrooms over medium high heat with a splash of olive oil until lightly browned and most of the moisture has been removed. Add leeks and garlic, cooking for 2 minutes. Pour in uncooked rice with another splash of olive oil and stir to combine. Cook, stirring for 1 minute. add in fresh thyme, lemon juice and zest. 

Here comes the fun part… ladle the simmering chicken broth into the rice, half a cup at a time, continuously stirring until the liquid is absorbed. Repeat the process until you are down to your last ½ cup of broth (approx.. 30 minutes). At this point stir in asparagus. 

Tip: your risotto should be very slightly al dente when done. If you do not feel like the rice is tender enough then feel free to add more warm broth or water, a ladle at a time, ensuring your risotto does not turn to mush. Take note that the rice will continue to cook a little bit after it has been removed from the heat source. Salt and pepper to taste, top with a handful of fresh basil (optional) and enjoy!
