The bone broth trend is in high gear right now. Since the founding of the Flavor Chef in 2008, we continue to create high quality, certified organic bone broth that really started gaining commercial popularity around 2014. Thanks in part to bone broths in books such as Nourishing Traditions and Nourishing Broth, and interest cultivated by the Weston A. Price organization (not to mention, over thousands of years of ancestors), these broths have become important again because of their powerful ability to heal the GI tract, and, if properly slow cooked as our broths are, they are loaded with nourishing bioavailable nutrients and collagen. Our society is in great need to heal our bodies and get back to the food of our roots. These vital nutrients and their impact on our overall health is why bone broth is so sought after by Nutritional Therapists and real food advocates everywhere.
Many articles have been published on the vast benefits of bone broth. If you are looking for that type of information, I recommend reading one of the books I mentioned above. What I’d like to do instead is share a couple of recipes we make using the broths available from bonebroth.com. Broth is excellent on its own, but here are a couple ways you can incorporate it into your meals anytime, even for breakfast! As a proud sponsor at the last two NTA conferences, The Flavor Chef and Bonebroth.com are excited offer the finest premium bone broths available today. The Flavor Chef is proud to offer the first Certified Organic Auto Immune Protocol (AIP) Bone Broths with no onions, no garlic, and no peppercorns. This AIP friendly broth is a short-cook, 2-hour, extremely low amino acid chicken meat broth, and like all The Flavor Chef Bone broths, it features Palomar Mountain Spring Water.
Here are a couple of recipes using our signature bone broths:
Bone Broth Braised Heirloom Carrots with Sweet Onions and Blackberry Ginger Balsamic
At The Flavor Chef we like to use local organic vegetables as much as possible. Here we have farm fresh summer heirloom carrots and locally grown sweet onions! We utilize our beef bone broth to get a sublime flavor into our carrots and finish with an 18-year old infused balsamic vinegar (You’ll want to ½ the recipe for smaller crowds.)
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil for the sauté
- 1 bunch (2 cups) local heirloom carrots scrubbed and sliced thin (peeled if desired)
- 2 sweet onions julienne sliced (thin strips)
- 1 inch ginger root, minced
- 1 Valencia orange, juiced
- 1 cup The Flavor Chef beef bone broth (substitute chicken bone broth or even water)
- Fresh mint (optional)
- Sea salt to taste
- Blackberry ginger balsamic (substitute traditional balsamic)
- Blood orange olive oil
Lots of Love!
- In a 10 inch sauté pan warm the coconut oil, add the julienned onions. Allow them to caramelize slightly.
- Next, add the ginger and the carrots. Continue to sweat and season with salt.
- Add the juice of the orange and the beef bone broth (or the liquid of choice).
- Allow the liquid to reduce as it steams the carrots till tender, sprinkle in the fresh herbs (optional) and combine for a minute allowing the herbs to gently bloom.
- Drizzle with blackberry ginger balsamic. Remove to a serving dish.
- Drizzle over the blood orange olive oil.
- Garnish with some more fresh herbs.
