Bone Broth /Stock Recipe: Pumpkin Peanut Curry Bisque
(If you have nut allergies, simply omit peanut butter for a delicious Pumpkin Curry Bisque)
Our family needs grass fed, organic bone broth! We enjoy bone broth in our morning meal or for at least 1 meal per day. Often we get the question, “How do you get your children to eat bone broth?” Well, the short answer is that I find very creative, fun, and tasty ways to incorporate bone broth into our meals.
The goal is to get a cup of this nutrient dense medicine into each of us, especially the children. We have helped our children and our Foster children get healthy pretty quick with bone broth and meat stock! It is super delicious and very good medicine…the natural-no-side-effect kind of medicine.
Hope you enjoy too! I’ll keep sharing as we go, so you can find some recipes to help your loved ones.
Who Can Resist the Coolest Bone Broth Bisque INSIDE the Pumpkin?
Ingredients for this Bisque in a Pumpkin; Bone Broth Recipe
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped (about ¾ cups)
4 cloves garlic or shallots, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and cubes (1 inch cubes)
1/2 tsp Cayenne optional
2 Tbsp Curry
2 Cups Bone Broth -chicken or turkey taste great this is our version of bone broth
1 Cup Water, plus more if needed to fill remainder of pumpkin
2-4 lb. Pumpkin de-seeded and roasted for about 30 minutes, See Here for easy instructions (or use a 15-ounce can pumpkin puree)
3 Tbsp smooth peanut butter, avoid if peanut allergies!
1 Tbsp Mineral Salt or your taste, we use this
1 tsp ground pepper or to taste, we use this unusual and beneficial pepper
Chopped fresh mint or cilantro, to serve
Remove roasted pumpkin from oven and take off the “lid”. Add all ingredients to the pumpkin. Very carefully scrape the sides of the pumpkin with a spoon to render the pumpkin meat for the bisque.
Put the filled pumpkin back in the oven for another 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and VERY Carefully blend all the cooked ingredients. We love this hand blender. If you do not have an immersion blender then scoop out the contents and blend in a blender. Pour back into the pumpkin.
If using canned pumpkin, heat oil on medium in a large saucepan. Once the liquid boils, reduce the heat to medium low, partially cover the pan, then let the soup cook until the potato and apple are very tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove the pumpkin or pan from the heat and let cool slightly. The texture should be like heavy whipping cream. If the soup is too thick, whisk in a bit of bone broth. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide between 4 serving bowls and top with mint or cilantro. And enjoy knowing that you just got those kiddos to have one of the most beneficial foods possible! Chicken Bone Broth.
