Last week, we shared with you our Immunity Building Chicken Bone Broth Soup recipe. This week, we continue the immunity building theme with this fantastic recipe for Braised Brussels Sprouts with Garlic, Turmeric and Bone Broth! While we all know how good Brussels sprouts are for us, the health and immune system benefits are seriously boosted with the generous additions of garlic, onions, turmeric and bone broth. By braising, we lock in all those nutrients and deliciousness.
This can also be done with most other vegetables by simply substituting out the Brussels sprouts with cauliflower, carrots, bok choy, or collards, for example. Please note, cooking times may vary when using other vegetables. Or, we can also add or combine some of these vegetables if we want a melange. The carrots in particular would be nice as they would add sweetness, color and, of course, flavor! Finally, finish this recipe with fresh immune boosting herbs like cilantro, parsley or basil.
Love is The Ultimate Spice!
|1 to 2 lbs Brussels Sprouts (or combo veggies)||2 tbsp coconut oil|
|1 large onion, sliced||1 cup TFC Organic Chicken Bone Broth|
|1 head garlic, cleaned, mince all cloves||1 tbsp dried turmeric powder|
|black pepper, to taste||cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)|
|granulated garlic, to taste||sea salt, to taste|
|fresh herbs of choice (cilantro, parsley or basil), chopped||nutritional yeast flakes (optional)|
In a large sauté pan on medium to high heat, add the oil, then add the garlic, and then shortly thereafter, add the onions and allow to sweat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Next, add the dried turmeric, season with sea salt and black pepper, and add the granulated garlic. Allow the spices to bloom as this enhances their flavor. Add the Brussels sprouts, or combo veggies, and sauté for up to 5 minutes allowing the Brussels sprouts to change color and cook a bit. Now, add the Organic Chicken Bone Broth and cover. Reduce heat to a low simmer and stir every few minutes. The veggies will be tender in about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, chop your fresh herbs. When the Brussels sprouts are tender, transfer from the pan to a bowl, toss gently and sprinkle with fresh herbs and nutritional yeast flakes (optional).
