Bone Broth Marinara Sauce

Bone Broth Marinara Sauce recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

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! 

Steamed Vegetables & Bone Broth

Steamed Vegetables & Bone Broth recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

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. 

Slow Cooker Bone Broth Pepper Beef Stew

Slow Cooker Bone Broth Pepper Beef Stew recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

One of my weekend favourites, a slow cooker pepper beef stew. 

The base of this stew starts with browned stewing beef, onions, layers of peppers, tomatoes and bone broth flavours simmered gently. Serve over creamy mashed potatoes, rice or couscous. Such a delicious, simple dinner option to warm the belly. 

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 lbs stewing beef

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 green peppers and/or red peppers, chopped

  • 1 can tomato sauce

  • 1 c Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth

  • ½ tsp dried basil

  • ½ tsp dried oregano

Directions:
Brown your beef with your onion in a skillet over medium heat. Drain your beef and onions and place in a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the rest of your ingredients cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. (I don’t like my pepper too mushy and will add them in the last half hour.) 

 

Rosemary & Garlic Slow Cooker Bone Broth Roast

Rosemary & Garlic Slow Cooker Bone Broth Roast recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

There are numerous claims that bone broth helps with digestive issues, improves memory, strengthens your immune system, promotes stronger bones and reduces joint pain. Many may claim there's still no definitive research as to the merits to these feel-good perks, but hey, doing a little more home cooking and a little less processed-food buying never hurt anyone. Not up for downing a bone broth latte? Then try this bone broth-based roast recipe that incorporates our Bone Brewhouse broth—and taste great too. 

Here's what you'll need:
Eye of round beef roast
¼ cup chopped fresh rosemary
¼ cup chopped garlic
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Olive oil
4 cups of mushrooms and onions
1 cup of Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth

Rub roast all over with olive oil. Chop leaves of rosemary and combine with garlic, sea salt and pepper. Rub around the outside of the roast to form a crust. Preheat a skillet or multi-cooker to 400 degrees. Add roast and sear on each side until lightly browned (4-6 minutes). Deglaze pan with bone broth and transfer all contents to slow cooker adding mushrooms and onions. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Remove and let rest for 15-30 minutes then slice to serve. Enjoy! 

Baked Spaghetti Squash & Tomato Curry

Baked Spaghetti Squash & Tomato Curry recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

Looks like it’s shaping up to be a yummy weekend… with this baked spaghetti squash and tomato curry. Sooo good and so easy to make. Here’s the recipe. 

Slice a spaghetti squash length-wise, brush with olive oil, salt/pepper and roast it in the oven face down for about 30-45 minutes on 375F. 

While that is roasting, fry in a pot one whole onion diced, one head of garlic crushed and ground beef in a pan. Then add 1 cup of Bone Brewhouse Traditional bone broth, 6 to 8 tomatoes diced, one whole green pepper diced and mushrooms chopped. Season with Italian seasoning and one tbsp. curry. Let simmer till the sauce thickens. 

Take your roasted spaghetti squash and remove the seeds. The skin hardens to a shell and the squash should be soft and look like spaghetti when you pull it away. Top with your curry sauce and enjoy!

Pho Bone Broth & Vietnamese-inspired Soup

Pho Bone Broth & Vietnamese-inspired Soup recipe made with bone broth created by Bone Brewhouse.

Our Pho bone broth is aromatic, perfectly spiced and better than chicken noodle soup during cold and flu season. I created this protein-packed version of a Vietnamese-inspired soup by simply adding udon noodles and garnish. 

Simply, thaw our Pho bone broth overnight in refrigerator or run container under hot water to loosen broth. Heat in a covered saucepan on medium heat and stir frequently till hot. Once the broth is heated, it’s this easy:

  • Add cooked udon noodles to a bowl

  • Pour broth over noodles

  • Add cooked protein (chicken, beef or tofu) and garnish ingredients (green onions, lime, cilantro, red and crushed chili peppers)

  • Boom!

I can’t wait for you to make this soup…and the flu isn’t required to do so. Bone Brewhouse broths are all natural goodness. No starches, gums or added colour. Ideal for Paleo and protein-based diets.
