Inspired my a dear friend of ours, this creamy avocado bone broth soup with turmeric and shiitake mushrooms is a new staple in our house. It is the perfect complement to any protein source – fish, meat, or eggs. I have even used it as a dressing, poured over a bed of salad greens.
Simply cook all the ingredients in a skillet, except the avocado and broth, together and then add the mixture to a blender with the broth and avocado. Blend it up and your soup is served!
Serve this as a warm or cold soup, dressing, or dip. Pour a few spoonfuls over a bed of baby lettuce greens or take some flax crackers or any low-carb finger food, give a generous dunk into the bone broth soup and munch away. This nutrient dense thick and creamy soup can even be served cold as a dip.
Wondering how to make bone broth?
Making a good broth is very simple, it essentially boils (or should I say simmers…*pun*) down to putting your materials in a pot, covering with water, adding a bit of acid like lemon juice or raw apple cider vinegar, and leaving it to cook over low temperature for many hours. Time varies with different type of broths. Beef, lamb, and goat take the longest; I usually cook these for 24 or more hours. Chicken broth takes less time and fish broth is the quickest of them all.
In our cookbook, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook, we teach you how to make all the staple broths and provide a number of recipes that use all the different broths.
Add some crunch to this soup by topping it with Homemade Flax Crackers, they are better than croutons! We have a Micronutrient Rich Cracker recipe posted on the site and 2 more (plus variations!) listed in our cookbook.
