Our Grandmother's knew what they were doing when they went straight to make chicken soup when some someone was sick.
Although, if you are like me, you probably didn't grow up eating homemade chicken soup but rather soup poured straight from cans.
Well, let's just be happy how far we've come.
Broth is one of the best examples of wisdom in food. Broth is rich full of nutrients the body can use right away and contains gelatin which is highly healing to the gut and body.
Humans have been making broths for thousands of years. It's also a way to use ALL the animal and extract beneficial nutrients from bones that we could not get to, without broth. Can you see why it's good for our bones?
I make this SO much during fall and winter months where virus's spread and people's immune systems tend to decline. However, if you take care of your gut you will strengthen your immune system (which up to 70% is located in your... can you guess? GUT!) instead.
This is a classic recipe. I love adding New Mexico green chile, properly soaked beans, and/or legumes. It's a great base and can be made quickly, if you have all the right ingredients.
If there was one life skill everyone should have, it's knowing how to make broth! I also love to add toppings like cilantro, lime, lemon, chopped green onions, thinly sliced fresh cabbage. I'm all about getting as many plants as I possibly can... but of course make it delicious.
This is what I love about nourishing the body properly, food can still be SO good!
Okay, let's do this!
Store any leftovers in a glass and airtight container in the fridge. Great for a 3-4 days. I always batch cook this stuff.
