Bone Broth

Packed with nutrients for healthy bones, hair and nails, this soup is made with selenium and zinc-rich chicken bones. It’s also a great way to use up any leftover chicken bones from a roast dinner.


Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken carcass, skin and fat discarded 
  • 1 large red onion, roughly chopped 
  • 1 large carrot, roughly chopped 
  • 1 garlic clove 

Preparation

  • Break the chicken carcass into smaller pieces and add to a roasting tin with the onion and carrot. Roast for 45 minutes until golden. 
  • Put the roasted chicken bones in a large pan and pour over enough cold water to cover them (approximately 1 litre). Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for a couple of hours. 
  • Add the roasted vegetables to the pan (you can even add some peelings) with the garlic.  Take off the heat and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight 
  • The next day, bring the stock back to the boil and simmer for 1 hour. Remove and throw away the bones. Continue to heat the stock to reduce the liquid to your preferred quantity and intensity.  

How to enjoy:

  • Simply heat and serve in a mug. 
  • Turn it into something more filling by adding cut leftover cooked chicken and any cooked vegetables you like, then warming through.  
  • Add an Asian twist by adding finely grated fresh ginger, thinly sliced garlic, soy sauce and serve with noodles. 
  • Make it Italian by adding tomatoes, herbs and drained white beans.
