Start with the red cabbage salad, you will need:

  • ¼ small head red cabbage
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 1/2 cups diced English cucumber
  • 1/3 cup minced red onion
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt, thyme and oregano to taste
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Pulse the parsley and mint in the food processor. In a bowl, mix it with the remaining tabbouleh ingredients. Set aside. 

For the tahini dressing, you will need:

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Smash and peel the garlic. Place all ingredients in the food processor and whirl until smooth. Set aside. 

For the cauliflower rice, you will need:

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil ghee, or bacon fat
  • ¼ cup Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth

Cut cauliflower into large florets. Rice cauliflower using shredding blade on food processor or grate by hand on a box grater. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add cauliflower rice, sauté then add bone broth and simmer until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. 

For the chicken spice blend, you will need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Flip the chicken and cook for 2 minutes. Add bone broth, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until chicken is no longer pink inside (approx. 10-15 minutes.) To serve cut the chicken into thin slices. Fill a bowl 1/3 red cabbage salad, 1/3 tabbouleh, 1/3 cauliflower rice, top with chicken and drizzle with tahini dressing. 

Black Rice & Bone Broth

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! 

Steamed Vegetables & Bone Broth

Veggies will absorb nutrients from whatever they’re cooked in – so why not steam or sauté them in bone broth? And when it comes to veggies, you can steam almost anything… broccoli, spinach, kale, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts. Where we live asparagus is starting to come into season… So, we've been steaming asparagus. Add a few cloves of garlic and a dollop of butter at the end, and voila – your perfect side dish is ready. 

Bone Broth Avocado Latte

Sip, sip, hooray! My gut is feeling the love with this bone broth Avocado Latte. Not only is it delicious but it can heal and seal your gut too. According to Jill Grunewald, a holistic nutrition coach and founder of Healthful Elements, a cup a day works miracles for leaky gut syndrome but it's also good for maintaining healthy guts too. The gelatin in the bone broth helps to coat your insides, eases chronic intestinal conditions and even some food intolerances. 

A perfect addition to any Valentine’s Day celebration, simply heat any Bone Brewhouse bone broth and transfer to a blender. Add 3 tablespoons coconut oil, a dash of salt, onion powder, garlic powder and 1 medium Hass avocado (about 3/4 cup mashed avocado). Blend and serve warm... with roses 🌹🌹🌹. Enjoy and Happy Valentines Day!
