There is just something delightful about a hearty bowl of soup. At our house we make huge batches of bone broth a few times a year and freeze it in mason jars in the deepfreeze; ready for when you hanker for some soup. This is a really fast recipe to put together, you can do the prep and cooking in around 15 minutes. For those who are vegan just swap the bone broth for vegetable broth, and the butter for coconut oil. For the keto-heads add in a tablespoon or two of butter or coconut oil to get the fat content up. This recipe makes enough for one very hungry farmer or two normal eaters, depending on what you add into the mix.
Winter Spicy Satay Bone Broth Soup
2 cups bone broth
2 cups water
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup sliced button mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced shitake mushrooms
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped green onion
2 tablespoons chopped basil
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1/2 tablespoon butter
3 rashers of bacon
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon hot sauce (Marcus uses this.)
Step 1: Chop and slice all the veg and the bacon if you are using it.
Step 2: In a pan on medium heat add 1/2 tablespoon of butter (or coconut oil) and the bacon if you are using it. Lightly sauté the onions in the butter until they start to go transparent (2-3 minutes).
Step 3: Add in the peanut butter, red curry paste, ginger, and garlic. Stir together until the peanut butter fully melts.
Step 4: Add in the broth and water slowly, stirring to thin the peanut butter. Then add in all the veg and mushrooms and bring to a low simmer. Simmer for 5-6 minutes, then add in any extras (hot sauce, butter, more hot sauce) and the soy. Personally we use Kikkoman brand soy sauce as it is lighter. Serve and enjoy.
Super simple. Have fun with the ingredients. We’ve done this with shrimp, pork, chicken, left over steak, beef, sausages… sometimes we add broccoli or cauliflower. It makes a really nice warm-up lunch for a cold day. This also is great with rice noodles.
