Bone broth, the new trendy wellness drink everyone is sipping on, is no passing fad. Traditionally this broth is made by simmering bones, ligaments and joints from cattle or chicken for long periods of time with spices and apple cider vinegar.

Not only is bone broth great for sipping in a mug, but it’s also fantastic for using in soups and stews or anywhere else you would use a chicken or vegetable broth.

Method:

  2. Cut the top off the head of the garlic and place on a parchment lined baking sheet along with the carrots, onion and celery.  Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Poke holes in the sweet potatoes with a fork. Place on the same baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, warm broth in a pot along with fresh thyme.
  5. Once the vegetables have roasted add the carrots, celery and onion to a blender. Let the garlic cool slightly before squeezing in desire amount of garlic.
  6. If your sweet potatoes are large, put them back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
  7. When the sweet potatoes have cooked (fork tender all the way through) remove them from the oven, slice them open and add the flesh to the blender.
  8. Add the broth with the thyme, salt and pepper to the blender and blend until smooth.
  9. Turn the oven down to 300 F. Mix your spiced cashews with all of the spices, olive oil and maple syrup.  Lay on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, mixing 3-4 times so they don’t burn. Let them cool slightly and toss with more salt if desired (about 2 large pinches)
  10. To serve top with spiced nuts, cooked finely chopped bacon, hot sauce and fresh thyme.

NOTES: *Roast the whole head of garlic and then add only as much as desired to your soup.  Any leftover can be saved to use in pasta sauces, mayonnaise or dressing.
