Kid friendly broth drink
This recipe is great for the kids, the star anise makes it little a bit sweeter and it smells devine!
1 litre of chicken bone broth
1 clove of star anise
1 stalk lemon grass
1 inch chunk of fresh ginger, chopped roughly
Simmer for 10 minutes to infuse the flavours into the broth, then pour through a sieve into cups.
Turmeric Hot Drink
This is adapted from one of Pete Evans recipes, I love having this instead of a coffee when that afternoon slump hits. The turmeric adds an extra boost for your immunity and is an excellent anti-inflammatory.
500mls bone broth
1 heaped tablespoon of grated fresh turmeric
1 pinch of cumin
1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
1 pinch of sea salt
Simmer for 10 mins, strain through a sieve and add lemon juice to taste.
Parsely and Ginger Drink
I love this recipe its so simple and such a great accompaniment to a meal. Broth aids digestion and is a protein sparer so whatever protein you eat will go further and be better utilised by your body when you drink broth.
1 litre broth
1 chopped stalk of parsley
Juice of a lemon
1 chunk of ginger, about 1 inch square, cut roughly
Simmer broth and ginger for 10 mins, then add lemon juice and parsley to taste.

4 cups chicken bone broth

1 leek, sliced
1 tsp finely chopped chilli
4 star anise

VIETNAMESE BEEF CURRY
This recipe is an original Pete Evans recipe. We love Pete's books and recipes and highly recommended " The Complete Gut Health Cookbook" - everything you need to know about the gut and how to improve yours!
Serves: 4 – 6
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 3 hours
1.2 kg beef cheeks or other cuts of beef, lamb or chicken suited to slow cooking cut into 1-inch cubes
3 tablespoons curry powder
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
4 tablespoons coconut oil
4 Asian shallots (spring onions), cut into 1 cm slices
1 carrot, chopped
5 garlic cloves, sliced
4 cm piece ginger, finely chopped
650 ml beef, chicken stock or water
3 tablespoons fish sauce
300 ml coconut cream
1 large handful water spinach leaves
1 large handful Vietnamese mint
Cooked cauliflower rice, to serve
Fresh lime, to serve
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Combine the beef cheeks, curry powder, turmeric, cayenne pepper in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Toss the ingredients together to combine and leave to marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Heat the 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large ovenproof pan or casserole dish over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, carrots and cook for 4 minutes until slightly softened, then add the ginger and garlic and cook for a further 1 minute until the garlic starts to colour and is fragrant. Remove from the pan.
Wipe the pan clean and return it to a medium-high heat with the remaining oil. When the oil is hot, add the marinated beef in batches, and cook until well browned. Return all the meat and the cooked garlic, shallots and ginger back to the pan and pour in the stock and fish sauce. Bring to a simmer then cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 2½ hours, or until the meat is tender. Add the coconut milk to the curry and cook for a further 5 minutes before serving. Season with more salt and pepper if needed and fold in the water spinach.
Garnish the curry with some Vietnamese mint leaves, and serve with cauliflower rice, some fermented veg and lime on the side.
NOoNIE'S TOMATO SOUP
This is a very easy 'fool proof' tomato soup! I usually double the quantity and make 4 litres (extra for freezing!) This recipe has been adapted from a local family favourite. Thanks for letting us use it Noonie!
In a stockpot;
Half a cup of olive oil on low heat
Add two roughly chopped red onions and cook slowly until translucent (about 7 minutes)
Add 2 cloves of diced garlic and cook for 2 minutes
Add a tsp of celery salt (optional), a tsp of black pepper and 2 Tbspns of sugar (optional)
Add 1.5kgs (2 litre icecream container) of roughly chopped fresh tomatoes (or you can use 4 tins of whole tomatoes.
Add 500mls (or more!) of Restore's Organic Cheeky Chicken Bone Broth
Tie some parsley and 2 cloves in some muslin or fine cloth - simmer slowly until mushy (about 45 minutes), leave the lid off for the last 10 minutes to reduce if too sloppy.
Cool and wizz (if you like a smooth soup).
We love Noonie's Tom Soup with crusty sourdough and loads of butter! Enjoy :)
