Lemony Lentil Soup

This delicious lentil soup is made in the manner that one might refer to it as a “mess of pottage.” Tender lentils and fresh vegetables simmer slowly together until extremely soft, and are then quickly pureed and brightened with the addition of fresh lemon juice. A lovely summer selection. We hope that you enjoy.

Ingredients: Red lentils, split yellow mung beans, onion, carrot, tomato, cumin, coriander, red pepper flake, lemon, vegetable stock, kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

I think this soup is best when finished with some crispy, fried shallots.

Bone Broth – Beef

We have been getting a lot of requests for bone broth over the last few months, and after a little bit of trial and error, have come up with a recipe that we’re happy to put our name on. Starting with bones from grass fed, grass finished cattle boiled down for hours (and hours, and hours, and hours….. and hours), and finished off with a mirepoix of onions, carrots, and herbs, Uncommon Stock bone broth is a completely natural super food that also tastes great.

Bone broth is a source of minerals, like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium, in forms that your body can easily absorb. It’s also rich in glycine and proline, amino acids not found in significant amounts in muscle meat (the vast majority of the meat we consume). It also contains chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the compounds sold as supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis, and joint pain. Finally, “soup bones” include collagen, a protein found in connective tissue of vertebrate animals, which is abundant in bone, marrow, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. The breakdown of collagen in bone broths is what produces gelatin.

Broth can be sipped straight as a healthy “tea”, or used in a variety of recipes to add flavor and health benefits. Don’t know about bonebroth? Google it, and see why athletes, paleo disciples, people with a wide range of ailments including colitis, Crohns, and celiac disease, and those who are simply interested in being healthy are seeking it out.

Ingredients: Bones (grass fed, grass finished), water, cider vinegar, onions, garlic, celery, carrot, bay leaf, thyme, parsley, black peppercorn
