The winter months are the perfect time to give extra attention to supporting your immune system. Today’s recipe for Golden Broth is one of my favorite ways to give myself a little boost. This nourishing drink tastes wonderful but also provides my body with the building blocks it needs for my best health!
A little while ago I shared my recipe for Golden Milk. It’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy the star of today’s recipe, turmeric. Sometimes I prefer a savory drink to a sweet one, so that’s when I turn to Golden Broth.
As mentioned, turmeric is the big deal in both of these recipes. Turmeric is a powerful little root. It gets it beautiful yellow color form curcumin, which not only has anti-inflammatory properties but also has been shown to support joint health and strengthen digestion.
When cooking with turmeric, it’s important to always include black pepper in your preparation. Piperine (the part of pepper that makes it peppery!) increases the bio-availability of curcumin which means that it will be better absorbed and used by the body. Good fats from the coconut milk also help with absorption of all this immune system awesomeness!
Ginger and garlic are not only the perfect flavor matches to turmeric, they are also known to have anti-inflammatory properties, making this one amazing cup of soup!
I highly recommend making your own broth for this recipe. It extremely easy, economical, and the taste is amazing! If you have an Instant Pot, here are some easy-peasy directions for making homemade broth. No Instant Pot? No worries. You can make amazing homemade broth in your slow cooker too. Just don’t have the time to wait for homemade broth? I highly recommend this store bought version for a totally clean, pastured/grass-fed broth.
Homemade broths are rich in the components of collagen and cartilage (glucosamine and chondroitin) which are helpful for joint health. Also present in homemade broths is gelatin. Known as “Nature’s Botox” it’s been shown to promote healthy hair, skin, and nails. Gelatin is also wonderful for digestive health!
