What to Make on a Wintry Day!

It’s cold, blustery, and damp outside. All you want to do is cuddle up on the couch, be with your loved ones, grab a mug, and sip on something warm and satisfying. That’s exactly what we’ve been doing lately.

Yes, even here in Hawaii it can get a bit nasty outside. But no matter what the weather is doing, this bone broth soup has been one of my favorite meals year round. Not only does it taste amazing, it’s also packed with incredible nutritional benefits.

Bone broth is dense with super available minerals, collagen, and protein. It’s pretty much a super food! It’s rather easy (and affordable) to make, as you can save your bones from past meals and use them to make broth. Or, go the easy route and pick some quality grass-fed bone broth at the store to use in your soup.

If you’re interested in making your own bone broth, here are some quick tips:
  1. Save your bones
  2. Roast them in the oven for 30 minutes at 425°F
  3. Throw them in a crockpot with water (til covered about an inch, or to fill line)
  4. Add 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (essential for drawing out the nutrients from the bones)
  5. Add veggies and spices for flavor and nutrients (onion, carrots, celery, black pepper)
  6. Set on low and cook overnight (up to 24 hrs)
  7. Strain broth, and either use immediately or transfer to jars for storing in the fridge or freezer.

You can sip the broth as is, use it as a replacement for water to add more flavor to rice or quinoa, or make soup like this recipe below.

You’ll notice that when you make or get quality bone broth and refrigerate it, it gets gelatinous, or like jello! That means there’s lots of collagen, yay! Good for happy joints, nails, and skin 🙂

Ok so now that you have your “base” for the soup, the bone broth, let’s get cookin!

Get yourself a nice big pot for the soup. Soup leftovers the next day always seem to taste better, so don’t be afraid of making too much!

Now let’s gather our ingredients:

  • 2 Tbl. avocado oil
  • 1 onion
  • About 32 oz. of Bone broth (can do a mixture of bone broth and other broths like veggie, beef, or chicken broth)
  • 2-4 carrots
  • 2 potatoes (we use Taro or Sweet potato sometimes to switch it up)
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 zucchini (can do broccoli as well)
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1 lb. of stew meat or ground beef (grass fed/organic)
  • Green onion to taste
  • Salt to taste

Alrighty, here we go! Chop up your veggies to whatever size you like.

Heat up your oil in the pot and sauté chopped onions.

After onions are cooked, pour in your broth and add all your other veggies. Set the heat to high and bring it to a boil.

As the soup is heating up, brown your meat in a separate pan and add salt. We like to pour in all the meat and juices into the stew pot to get all the flavors.

Once the soup comes to a boil, turn the heat to low, cover and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.

Enjoy with some crackers or a piece of toast. And again, it’s so good the next day.

You’ll notice that when you make or get quality bone broth and refrigerate it, it gets gelatinous, or like jello! That means there’s lots of collagen, yay! Good for happy joints, nails, and skin 🙂

Hope you enjoy this soup!
